I saw someone on my facebook all pissed off because they cast Gal Gadot as Cleopatra. They are saying that a black person should be playing the role. This makes no sense to me, Cleopatra was mostly greek with some Persian and Syrian ancestry. So when it comes down to it Gal most likely is not far off from what she looks like.
But I saw tons of comments to the post agreeing that they should not have cast Gal in the role.
Am I crazy or is this a stupid thing to get mad about?
