We all know dolls of movie characters don’t often look exactly like they do in the movie, but a new doll has set Twitter abuzz. Disney recently released dolls for the highly anticipated live-action version of Beauty and the Beast. While the doll for Belle is meant to look like Emma Watson, many have said the doll looks more like Justin Bieber.

William Herrington was the first person to post pictures of the doll after stumbling upon it on sale. Since then others have surfaced with the consensus that the doll is a complete fail. Regardless of who it looks like, it doesn’t look particularly beautiful (the very meaning of “belle”). The doll reportedly looks like she has a skin disease because of the freckles on her face. Not only that but the proportions of her head, her ears and forehead are off, making it look almost like a caricature.

Here’s what people are saying:

There has been so much hype around this film, particularly as the release approaches (March 2017), but I don’t think this is exactly the type of publicity Disney was hoping for. I don’t know who to feel more sorry for – Justin or Emma. What are your thoughts?
