(SNews) – Jada Pinkett Smith’s new Netflix docudrama series, Queen Cleopatra, has the worst audience ratings in television history.
The show has a shocking 1% approval score.
The show caused a huge backlash in Egypt by portraying Cleopatra as a black woman.
As part of her “woke” crusade, Will Smith’s controversial wife Jada Pinkett had the show change the race of Cleopatra.
“Cleopatra was Greek, which means she was fair-skinned, not black,” former Egyptian Minister of Antiquities Zahi Hawass said.
According to The LA Times: “Cleopatra was born in the Egyptian port city of Alexandria in 69 BC and succeeded her father in 51 BC to rule until her death in 30 BC amid the expansion of the Roman Empire.
“Egyptologists have confirmed that she was Macedonian-Greek on the side of her father, Ptolemy XII, but her maternal heritage is less clear; little is known about her birth mother’s ethnic origin.
“Historians have said it’s possible that she, or any other female ancestor, was an Indigenous Egyptian or from elsewhere in Africa.
“…Egyptian lawyer Mahmoud al-Semary filed a complaint with Egypt’s public prosecutor to request that Netflix be blocked in the North African nation due to the promotion of ‘Afrocentric thinking,’ including ‘slogans and writings aimed at distorting and erasing the Egyptian identity.’”
Hollywood doesn’t care about historical accuracy as long as the show is a hit among “woke” audiences.
However, Smith’s new show is a dud.
