  • Rupert Murdoch Mocked on Twitter for ‘Egyptians are White’ Comment


    Decrepit billionaire, Rupert Murdoch, found himself in the centre of a social media frenzy this weekend, after Twitter users attacked the Australian media mogul for his ever so slightly misinformed understanding of Egypt, following a comment about  Ridley Scott’s upcoming movie, Exodus: Gods & Kings.

    The star-studded production, which features Hollywood big-shots like Christian Bale and Sigourney Weaver, tells the tale of Moses as he rises up against Pharaoh Ramses and has received a steady stream of criticism for featuring an all-white cast.

    Already with several race-related bloopers credited to his infamous career, Murdoch chimed in and defended the casting.

    Naturally, the Twitterverse erupted in a collective chuckle.





    Not content with making himself look oh so silly, Murdoch only made things worse when he tried to clarify his comments.

    Don't you just love when notoriously racist and out-of-touch old men get on Twitter?
