The movie Exodus has not been doing too well in the U.S., and now it looks like it won’t do any better in Egypt or Morocco.
The biblical movie has been officially banned in both countries, and for two separate reasons. Morocco won’t play the movie due to the fact that there is a representation of God in the film, while Egypt has banned it because of the claim that Moses and the Jews built the pyramids, which is a “historical inaccuracy.”
An Egyptian Culture Minister told a British newspaper:
“This totally contradicts proven historical facts,” Egyptian culture minister Gaber Asfour told the British newspaper. “It is a Zionist film,” he said. “It gives a Zionist view of history and contains historical inaccuracies and that’s why we have decided to ban it.”
We can’t argue with claims that it’s inaccurate. Do you think those countries made the right call?
Despite his comments, the Thor actor had a pretty good comeback for the controversial radio host, and he took to his social media to give it to him, as well as respond to the James Bond rumors in general.
Idris took a selfie of himself making a funny face, and captioned it:
“Isn’t 007 supposed to [be] handsome? Glad you think I’ve got a shot! Happy New year people.”
Agreed, Idris. Agreed.
Kim Zolciak got one heck of a Christmas gift. But doesn’t she always?

She captioned the IG photo of the bling:
Oh hi 10 carats!! 😍😍 forevermark diamond! #inlove#stunning #bestfriends
