Australian Rachel Mui was shocked and brought to tears when a stranger came up to her 3-year-old daughter Samara in early June and allegedly told her, "Don't know why you dressed up for because Anna & Elsa aren't Black & Black is ugly & you're Black." After Mui shared the story, even Elsa herself has something to say about it.
Here's what happened: Samara wore the Elsa dress while out at the Watergardens, a place in her town that hold different events, including Frozen ones, when she had encountered the blatant racism.
"Not nice.. Still Racism is alive & well in the next generation," she wrote in the Facebook post about what had happened.
Australian-based news site The Courier spoke to Mui about what happened and were told that after the comments were made, Mui asked the woman what she meant.
"One of the woman's young daughters screwed up her face, she pointed at Samara and said 'you're black and black is ugly,' " she said.
Samara cried and hid her face in her hands.
Mui shared the story to her Facebook page, where it went viral with more than 1,900 shares. It even reached Queen Elsa herself.
Aside from the outpouring support from everyone all over the world, Queen Elsa is now speaking up for her.
Two days ago, an Elsa impersonator, who appears to be an actress at a Disney theme park, shared a message for the little girl on YouTube.
"Hello Samara! This is Elsa, Queen of Arendelle," she says. "I've heard a little bit about you and so I just wanted to say, 'Hi.' "
'Always be yourself and let it go,' she says.
Word on the street (OK, per The Courier), Samara has been crowned a princess.
Now, Elsa and the world have her back, and there's nothing that can penetrate that. Not even racism.
It can't get any better than that.
