In today’s edition of Old Dudes Say the Darndest Things, News Corp Chairman and media giant Rupert Murodch has come under fire for causing mischief on social media.

As a bit of background, there’s a new film coming out soon about Ancient Egypt & Moses. As Hollywood tends to do with anything regarding history, there’s a little white-washing going on.

Murdoch saw all this chatter, and in an, um, attempt to stand up for the underdog, he sent the following tweet out to his 534k followers:
