King Tut Is a Victim of Body Shame

By

When King Tut died, he was laid to rest in a tomb that captured his visage for all of time. And thanks to that tomb, he is forever frozen in time as a golden god, a majestic boy king who excelled at chariot races.

But now images from a virtual autopsy of King Tut reveal that instead of a regal man with full lips and an equine nose, Tut more likely had buck teeth, a club foot, and “girlish hips,” reports the Daily News — not to mention any number of genetic shortcomings that occur when your parents were probably brother and sister.

Poor guy. Seven centuries and a solid gold tomb later, even he can’t escape the harsh body-shaming of modern society.
