Mohamen Mehdi Ouazanni, TV VIEWERS have reacted strongly to an alarming similarity between Barack Obama and an actor playing the Devil.
Thousands of the 13.1 million viewers of The Bible commented on social media platforms on the resemblance of actor Mohamen Mehdi Ouazanni to the 44th President of the United States.
Even right-wing commentator and radio-host Glenn Beck tweeted: “Anyone else think the Devil in #TheBible Sunday on History Channel looks exactly like That Guy?”
The show is a retelling of the stories from Genesis to Revelation and is produced by Mark Burnett, who also created Survivor and The Apprentice. He told CBS making The Bible was a “spiritual” calling, not a commercial one.
The incident brings to mind HBO’s inclusion of a fake George W. Bush head impaled onto a stick in a season one episode of hit series Game of Thrones.
In that instance, the network pulled the episode from its rotation and halted shipments of DVD box sets and iTunes sales until the issue had been rectified.
