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.
Kuroko no Basuke: Like the worst break up ever. But five times.
Yowapeda: Either best frenemies for life, or trapped in rivalries with unworldly creatures.
Haikyuu!!: Archnemeses who probably party together on weekends.
Free!: We’re all basically best friends but we try really hard to hide it at official meets. Except for when we cry on each other.
