Black Twitter is NOT having the latest bust of Nefertiti and they are airing out every grievance on the social media website.
Ahead of a new Expedition Unknown special on the Egyptian Queen Nefertiti, the host, Josh Gates, stopped by Today to unveil the latest Nefertiti statue and whelp … it just ain’t right.
When Gates took the cover off of the bust of King Tut’s mother, it became immediately apparent that Nefertiti looked straight up white. TODAY show host, Hoda Kotb, (who is American, Egyptian) even had a confused look on her face, however, remained mum regarding the jarring image.
