People are talking about Will Smith's Genie look in the 'Aladdin' remake.
Disney first released the Aladdin teaser trailer in October and many hardcore fans of the cult classic had issues with Aladdin actually wearing a shirt.
the new #Aladdin trailer features Aladdin with a shirt under his iconic vest…?

The whole “Aladdin wearing a shirt” outrage now seems to be a thing of the past because people are upset with Will Smith’s potential Genie look.
That’s because today Entertainment Weekly dropped its latest issue featuring the cast of Disney’s live-action remake of ‘Aladdin’ on the cover.

So far, people seem to be less concerned about Aladdin wearing multiple layers of shirts and more concerned about Will Smith’s look as the adored Genie.

Will’s Genie hair is making some fans feel a bit anxious.

I think you have to be a Genie to figure out what this hot mess may turn out being..I am not 100% sure. I feel like even the "Hitch" version of Will Smith would hate 2018 Will Smith

All may not be lost. Will Smith has already started to respond to criticisms of his Aladdin look on Instagram.

Which.. totally makes sense. I mean, why wouldn’t you market the face of one of the world’s best-known actors for a Disney movie?
Makes sense gotta show the stars face

Whew, huge sigh of relief there. Let’s just hope they do something about whatever it is that’s on top of his head as well.
The internet wouldn’t be the internet without giving the meme/joke treatment to the fresh ‘Aladdin’ controversy.
Now, this is a story all about how
My life got flipped-turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute
Just sit right there

Looks like the Sinbad genie from the Shazam movie that existed but never really existed. https://t.co/tAhO22frkb

In the cartoon movie, it was believable that Princess Jasmine chose Aladdin, because Jafar was looking like a skeleton with a painted on beard. Now we gonna be like wayment Jasmine you might wanna reconsider cuz Jafar is FOINE!!! pic.twitter.com/Wa0Ur4pSRo
