Why such an uproar over ‘Bible’ character?

Why the uproar over Mehdi Ouzanni, the actor who plays the devil on the History Channel’s “The Bible,” and his resemblance to President Obama? Where was the uproar when President George W. Bush’s likeness made a very unflattering cameo in the first season of HBO’s “The Game of Thrones”? More specifically, a prop severed head bearing the former president’s likeness appeared mounted on a stick.
