Some are angry that the actress cast as "The Mummy" is a "white woman." They apparently didn't do much research, as the actress, Sofia Boutella, is Algerian-born. (Image source: YouTube screen cap)

Yup, the actress who plays the mummy — Sofia Boutella — hails from Algeria, a north African nation that’s 99% Arab and Muslim.

Not exactly a spot that those (well, those who do a little research, anyway) would characterize as a Caucasian haven.
