Paul Joseph Watson, an editor for conspiracy theorist extraordinaire Alex Jones, tried to take a swipe at the BBC for showing people of color in the Roman Empire in a series about Roman Britain.

"Thank God the BBC is portraying Roman Britain as ethnically diverse," he wrote. "I mean, who cares about historical accuracy, right?"

Except, yeah, of course the BBC cares about historical accuracy. That's why they were being historically accurate. A Twitter man named Mike Stuchbery, who describes himself as writer, historian, and educator, took it upon himself to slam Watson into the ground with a well-sourced rant against ignorance.

The thread from Stuchbery instantly went viral on Imgur. Here are three more articles about ethnic diversity in Roman Britain.
