Outrage over Satan of ‘The Bible’ series `resembling` Barack Obama
New York: History Channel`s new series `The Bible` has created a furore after the actor portraying Satan`s role in a recent episode reportedly resembled US President Barack Obama.
The devil was played by actor Medhi Ouzaani, and the similarity could be a casting coincidence.
Right-wing commentator Glenn Beck was one of the first to point out the similarity, tweeting, "Anyone else think the Devil in #TheBible Sunday on History Channel looks exactly like That Guy?"
Another Twitter user said, "Oh my word... Watching The History Channel`s The Bible. Does Satan look familiar to anyone else?"
"Watching The Bible series on the History channel and noticed the guy playing the role of Satan, looks strikingly similar to Obama," said another user.
The incident echoes the furore of HBO`s inclusion of George W Bush`s head impaled on a stick during season one of Game of Thrones.
After producers pointed out the `cameo` in DVD commentary, the network froze shipments of box sets and halted sales on iTunes until the offending head was removed.
