History Channel Denies Satan Looks Like President Obama
The History Channel miniseries “The Bible” has been generating heavenly ratings. But the show generated some controversy with its Sunday night episode in which the character playing Satan made his debut.
The controversy was not over anything happening on screen, but rather whether or not the actor playing Satan looks a little too much like Obama.
Via Yahoo News reports:
History Channel has been quick to deny any similarities between the two, issuing the following statement:
“HISTORY channel has the highest respect for President Obama. The series was produced with an international and diverse cast of respected actors. It’s unfortunate that anyone made this false connection. HISTORY’s ‘The Bible’ is meant to enlighten people on its rich stories and deep history.”
The Bible Executive Producers Mark Burnett & Roma Downey also released a statement:
“This is utter nonsense. The actor who played Satan, Mehdi Ouazanni, is a highly acclaimed Moroccan actor. He has previously played parts in several Biblical epics– including Satanic characters long before Barack Obama was elected as our President.”
“Both Mark and I have nothing but respect and love our President, who is a fellow Christian. False statements such as these are just designed as a foolish distraction to try and discredit the beauty of the story of The Bible.”
This is the actor who plays Satan, does he really look like Obama?
