Josh Gates, in promotion of his new special on the Egyptian Queen Nefertiti, stopped by the The Today Show to show off a newly completed bust of Nefertiti based on the DNA remains of the HBIC. Unfortunately for Mr. Gates and The Today Show, their Twitter mentions were flooded when Black Twitter saw a clip of the unveiling and something seemed a little...off. Why would Black Twitter roast someone for highlighting Black history? Well have a look for yourself.
Josh was so excited to debut his surprise on The Today Show.
Please note that Hoda Kotb, an Egyptian American, even did a double take.
The timing was less than ideal.
Let's be clear, it's not her face structure that has people up in arms.
Twitter provided a plethora of examples. From Iman in Michael Jackson's "Remember the Time" video.
To images from the deep cuts of actual Egyptian history.
I mean, seriously...
