    OMG *facepalm emoji*

    Apparently Gal Gadot portraying the Ptolemaic Cleopatra is 'whitewashing'

    I think some really people need to pick up a history book.

    One of the tweets sourced has fewer than a dozen comments, most in disagreement, no retweets, and no likes.

    I looked through this when it happened. There were a number of checkmark accounts who were pushing this BS and they each had a few hundred retweets. There was a ton of pushback immediately, but this wasn't a case of one idiot.

    Without even bothering to actually do any research (because it's such a safe bet): I would venture that Cleopatra, being a Ptolemaic queen of Egypt, was actually white.
