Washington: Rupert Murdoch has recently defended the all-white cast of 'Exodus: Gods and Kings' on Twitter, declaring that that Egyptians are whites, it has been reported.




According to the Hollywood Reporter, the media mogul, whose 20th Century Fox studio is distributing the film, tweeted that of course Egyptians are Middle Eastern, but far from black and they treated blacks as slaves.


Murdoch also wrote that there are many shades of color and told his Twitter followers to "calm down."


' Exodus' focuses on Moses defying Pharaoh Ramses by leading the slaves out of Egypt.
