Egypt Govt Slams Woke Netflix Falsifying History Cleopatra Wasn-t Black

The government of Egypt has slammed Netflix with some cold hard facts amid the streaming network’s upcoming docudrama series Queen Cleopatra, which portrays the ancient queen as a black woman.

Egypt accused Netflix of a “falsification of Egyptian history and a blatant historical fallacy” for their inaccurate portrayal of Queen Cleopatra as black woman.

In a lengthy statement, Egypt’s Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities said Cleopatra had Hellenic, or Greek, features and was light-skinned, and she was not black.

The conclusion comes from artistic representations of Cleopatra and DNA research on ancient Egyptian remains.

According to The Daily Mail, Dr. Nasser Mekkawy, Head of the Egyptian Department of Archeology at Cairo University added that Cleopatra’s appearance would have been light-skinned due to her Macedonian origins

He said that Cleopatra descended from an ancient Macedonian dynasty that ruled Egypt for nearly 300 years.

The Ministry also said that anthropology studies and DNA studies conducted on mummies and bones confirmed that Egyptians do not bear the features of South-Saharan Africans.

The secretary-general of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, Mostafa Waziri, said Netflix’s show represents a “falsification of Egyptian history and a blatant historical fallacy.”

He added that Netflix needs to investigate the show’s historical accuracy.

Netflix’s Queen Cleopatra ignited a firestorm over its decision to cast a black actress as Cleopatra.

The’woke’ streaming service is now being denounced in Egypt for trampling on an entire nation’s history.

An Egyptian lawmaker named Saboura al-Sayyed has reportedly even called for Netflix to be banned.

Due to the backlash, Netflix was even forced to turn off comments on social media posts.

A Change.org petition calling for the series to be canceled was removed without explanation.

Queen Cleopatra’s director defended her casting decision, saying it was a “political” choice to make Cleopatra black.

Political? How about Netflix’s focuses on being historically accurate they are producing documentaries?
