The Innocence of Muslims is one movie which is causing global outbreak and anger expression by the Islamic and Muslim world via blocking YouTube in Pakistan and Saudi Arabia. One of the female leads in an anti-Muslim movie that set off riots across the globe says she was tricked into acting in the movie and is suing the director for fraud. In “Innocence of Muslims” Cindy Lee Garcia plays a mother who must decide whether to marry her daughter to the Prophet Muhammad.
In the film her character asks whether Muhammad is a child molester. But, Garcia is claiming that scene was manipulatively edited by filmmaker Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, adding she wasn’t told of the film’s anti-Muslim content and the scripts she received made no mention of Islam or Muhammad, The Associated Press reported Wednesday.
How despicable and fraudulent of the director who has told so many lies and hurt so many people’s feelings. In her recently filed lawsuit, Garcia claims the film was advertised as an ancient Egyptian adventure and the anti-Islamic message was later dubbed into the movie.
She is suing Nakoula for slander and asking the judge to force YouTube to take down the offending clip.
“This lawsuit is not an attack on the First Amendment nor on the right of Americans to say what they think, but does request that the offending content be removed from the Internet,” Garcia states in her lawsuit, adding that the film is “vile and reprehensible.”
So far YouTube has refused to remove the clip. And now Garcia, of Bakersfield, Calif., is worried her role in the film has placed her family in danger.
She and her husband are looking for a new home because of the threats, Garcia said, adding that her family is “in hysterics.”
