"Black History Month fail!"
Folks are questioning the TODAY Show’s integrity after they aired a segment revealing a “first look” at Egyptian Queen Nefertiti resembling a white woman with green eyes and all.
The reconstructed bust was made through high-tech imaging from exclusive access they had to the remains of Nefertiti, King Tut's mother and a powerful Egyptian Pharaoh ⚱️🌍🇪🇬
