GENGHIS KHAN
Tell me what you imagine when you think of Genghis Khan. Let me know if it's similar to a dude clad in thick fur and leather and metal armours, maybe with a little pointy helmet? Maybe bearded and mustachio'd? Looking all leader-like, definitely, right? Sword or bow in hand? Horses nearby (or he's riding one)? Completely kickass and badass right? - eta- because he wasn't exactly badass for mass genocide Leading an army and empire across the Asian continent, right?

Oh, and of course, Mongolian. right?

Well according to Hollywood, he's John Wayne MICKEY ROURKE.


MICKEY. ROURKE. AS GENGHIS KHAN.

I CAN'T. WORDS CANNOT EVEN EXPRESS THIS EXTENT OF BLATANT WHITE-WASHING YELLOWFACE.

I am so horrified. This is 21, Dragonball Z, The Last Airbender and Extraordinary Measures rolled into one ball of MASSIVE YELLOWFACE FAIL

Go on, someone - please play devil's advocate and justify how and why Mickey Rourke should play Genghis Khan. Please? I won't rage at you, I promise. I just want to know how this can be justified in ANYONE'S MIND. please, tell me?
