Did Ridley Scott’s “Exodus” movie give the Sphinx a white/European makeover?

The backlash against Ridley Scott’s Exodus is gathering momentum. After Noah’s mixed reception earlier this year, more and more people are sick of seeing movies with “whitewashed” casts: White actors representing historical figures who almost certainly were not white.

The latest accusation of Exodus whitewashing relates to someone who technically isn’t even a character: the Sphinx.

The likeliest explanation is that the sculpture in this picture is not the Sphinx, but is in fact a statue of Ramses. This means that it would have been based on actor Joel Edgerton’s face. 

Unfortunately, this just makes the whitewashed casting even more blatant, because real statues of Ramses II simply do not look like that. So while Exodus may not have made a “white version” of the Sphinx, Egyptian culture is still being erased and rewritten to fit in with the film’s predominantly white cast of actors.

tl;dr, yes, they made an Egyptian statue’s face white.

No spacey/sciency posts today, folks. Too busy learning about how someone else’s religion trumps my right to proper reproductive health care.

John Huppenthal (R), the superintendent of public instruction, using an online alias, ”posted several comments on a conservative-leaning website calling for no Spanish language in the state,” KTVK reports.

"We all need to stomp out balkanization. No Spanish radio…

There is literally no official language for the US. How the fuck do politicians not know or acknowledge this?

because it helps to remember this every now and then.

Also did anybody else notice that they removed the “Elton John’s AIDS foundation” logo from Miley’s picture? Fuckin’ agendas everywhere….

I literally threw a mini fit

The fact that they even touched up the woman in the BACKGROUND of the Selena Gomez pic is crazy.

I’ve said this every time it comes on my dash but please also notice that a lot of the women get photoshopped lighter.

Not just that they photoshoped Rihanna’s wide nose. Did you notice that? IN every one they gave her a nose job (in the red one, the nose was the main focus of their editing).

who the fuck is enrico francis and why is his name added to half these pics

Not only did they touch up the woman I’m the background, they left the man alone.
Also, women are not allowed to have muscles or largish foreheads?

In case you needed proof that Peta is literal scum. 

Not to mention that in a 2010 inspection conducted by a VDACS veterinarian, it was discovered that 84 percent of the animals Peta took in were killed within 24 hours. [source]

When Justin Bieber said the most confusing day for Black people is Father’s Day, he seemed to forget his white father wanted nothing to do with him until he became a millionaire.

What do you thinks about Angelina Jolie as Cleopatra in an upcoming movie?
