This actress was trolled on social media for playing the role of Cleopatra
Wonder Woman Gal Gadot will play Cleopatra in her upcoming movie. As soon as the news of entertainment came on the internet that Gadot would play the role of Queen of Egypt in her upcoming movie, fans started criticizing the Israeli actress's casting for this movie.
The Israeli actress herself has given information about playing the role of Egypt Queen through a post on her Twitter. Gal Gadot had a tweet on Sunday (October 11) detailing this, in which she wrote, "As you may have heard, I teamed up with @PattyJenks and @LKalogridis to tell the story of Cleopatra, the Queen of Egypt. Never thought to bring it to the screen."
The actress further referred to Cleopatra in her post, writing, "Her story for the first time through the eyes of women, back and forth behind the camera." I love new trips. I am always excited about new projects and I also love the thrill of bringing new stories to life. Cleopatra is a story that I wanted. Since when did I want to tell you this?
In this story, Gal may be excited to get the role of the Egyptian Queen, but the fans did not like it. The fans started expressing their anger on social media as soon as they read their tweet. One user wrote on Twitter, "How can Makers finally cast an African blood actress to play the role of Egyptian queen? I'm surprised about the casting of Cleopatra, Gal Gadot Shouldn't be Cleopatra. DISRESPECT! "
Another user wrote, "I can't believe that Gal Gadot is doing an amazing job playing Cleopatra. However, I would love to see Cleopatra more than a brown paper bag. Dark, because it would be historically a bit accurate." In simple words, users have also made the same gesture that it is not right to choose an Israeli actress for a Cleopatra. It would have been better for him to have selected an Egyptian artist for his character. However, some users also praised the casting of the role of the Egyptian Queen and wrote, Cleopatra was an Angétian queen, originally Greek.
