Algerian Actress Accused of Looking ‘Too White’ for Role in Tom Cruise ‘Mummy’ Movie

In the movie, Ahmanet is awoken from a 2,000-year long slumber to wreak havoc upon the world. Sealed alive and now resurrected by the reopening of her tomb, the Egyptian princess brings with her a millennia-long grudge against humanity.

But instead of enjoying the ride, outraged social justice warriors took to social media to complain about the actress who plays the role in their erroneous belief that she is white.
