The latest Tom Hanks movie named “A Hologram for the King” received severe backlash from Saudis angry that it apparently portrayed their country in a negative light.

Reactions were intense, with some arguing that the movie was insulting to Saudis as it ignored modern advancements in the kingdom, choosing to only show the negative aspects - which they claim were exaggerated.

This movie follows an American salesman who travels to Saudi Arabia in order to make a business deal with a member of the royal family.
