After McCarthy’s potential involvement made headlines, the “Juice” singer-slash-rapper-slash-flautist retweeted a video from when she started campaigning for the role — fully dressed in character — way back in November. “I’M URSULA. PERIOD,” she wrote at the time.

And Twitter clearly agrees, including Tony Award winner Cynthia Erivo. Just check out all these responses, especially if you work at a certain mouse-eared film studio.
