A fight broke out late last month at an Orlando theater during a screening of one of the most family friendly movies playing, “The Little Mermaid.”

In a widely shared TikTok video posted by @soso_hyppolite on May 27, viewers can see and hear a group of women screaming at each other in a darkened theater as the remake of Disney’s 1989 classic plays on a large screen behind them.


“In front of my daughter!?” shouts one woman. “Don’t yell at me in front of my daughter!”

The two women, standing up and obscuring the screen, continue to curse at each other at the top of their lungs.

A man enters and says, “Hey, hey!” as he attempts to defuse the situation. “What’s going on?”

“I need a refund on my ticket, nooo,” says the social media user @soso_hyppolite, who added that the theater was full of children and families. “We getting a refund ‘coz nuh-uh. This is a kids’ movie. Oh my Goddd.”

The PG film starring Halle Bailey as the mermaid Ariel and Melissa McCarthy as sea witch Ursula ranked as the fifth biggest Memorial Day weekend opening.
