It is a role that until now has belonged to the legendary Elizabeth Taylor, but on Sunday, Gal Gadot, 35, confirmed that she will star as Cleopatra in a new movie to be directed by her Wonder Woman ‘woke‘ director Patty Jenkins.
As you might have heard I teamed up with @PattyJenks and @LKalogridis to bring the story of Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt, to the big screen in a way she’s never been seen before. To tell her story for the first time through women's eyes, both behind and in front of the camera. pic.twitter.com/k5eyTIfzjB

The Mob Tells Gal Gadot ‘You Ain’t Black!’ So You Can’t Portray Cleopatra
Outraged that Gal Gadot would be playing Cleopatra, the uneducated liberal mob attacked her for being white and who has the audacity to play a black person.
But as we’ve come to know and love the liberal social media mob they care little for facts or looking like hypocrites when it comes time to spew their feelings.
Despite historians having long ago proven that Cleopatra’s heritage was greek and not African, the mob didn’t let a little thing like facts slow them down.
Amazingly, while the leftist seems to pounce the moment a white person is tapped to play a supposed person of color.
Hypocrite liberals never seem to have a problem when the roles are reversed. Such as when Lin-
Gal.. I’m a fan. As a black, female, Environmental Safety Scientist, this is a EXCELLENT example of why I can’t break into some scientific circles.. #WhiteWashing. Cleopatra was an AFRICAN Egyptian and was likely of color.

The liberal mob never letting facts get in the way of their fiction
The real-life Cleopatra ruled Egypt for three decades, first with her father, then with her two younger brothers, and finally with her son, reputed to have been fathered by Julius Caesar.
While Cleopatra was born in Egypt, historians traced her family origins to Macedonian Greece and Ptolemy I Soter, one of Alexander the Great’s generals.
Ptolemy took the reigns of Egypt after Alexander’s death in 323 B.C., and he launched a dynasty of Greek-speaking rulers that lasted for nearly three centuries.
In other words, Cleopatra wasn’t black, she was Greek.
Of course, while there are no pictures of Cleopatra, there are statues, coins, and drawings that were completed during the time she ruled over Egypt which captures how she most likely looked appeared.
And while they’ll never come close to an actual photograph, these works did capture her features.
As you can see, her features are far closer to that of a Grecian, than that of a person of color.
Taking it a step further, using such items as coins, statues, and drawings, and her ancestry, facial reconstructionist recreated what they believe is a close approximation to how Cleopatra actually appeared.
