Egyptologist Calls Beyonce StupidPublished by Runteldat on Friday, November 13, 2009 at 12:00 am.
If being called Satan’s whore wasn’t bad enough, now Egyptians are calling Beyonce stupid.
That verbatim is how Egyptologist, Zahi Hawass described Bey.
Here’s what the meanest tour guide in all the land had to say about Beyonce:
In a shocking display of poor diplomacy, Egypt’s chief Egyptologist Zahi Hawass allegedly called American pop-star Beyonce a “stupid person” during her brief tour of the Giza pyramids earlier this week. Writing in al-Shorouk newspaper, Summer al-Gamal said that Hawass became fed up with the pop star’s attitude after she did not show the interest Hawass felt was deserved of the pyramids.
According to Gamal, during Hawass’ self-guided tour, he said “I showed her the Sphinx and I gave her a book on King Tutankhamen,” but then his anger and frustration made its way to the forefront.
“Then he stopped being diplomatic and said in anger, ’she’s a stupid person and she doesn’t understand a thing and she doesn’t want to understand,’” wrote Gamal.
Hawass is known for his outbursts. A number of foreigners have told Bikya Masr that he has used Arabic to insult others at dinner events and gatherings, believing the non-Egyptians will not understand his Arabic. Beyonce, obviously, did not understand his jabs, Gamal said.
“She’s coming here to take pictures and that’s it,” Gamal quoted Hawass as saying.
To quote the great Stephanie Tanner, “How rude!”
Hopefully Tina Knowles is somewhere prepping a root for that off brand Indiana Jones.
