Devout Christian and former “Growing Pains” star Kirk Cameron claimed Monday that Facebook and YouTube censored the trailer for his new movie “Unstoppable.”
We reported this story on Monday in The Movie Trailer That Is So Controversial That YouTube And Facebook Banned It!
Facebook also blocked the video, but the site said it was due to a glitch, not because of the trailer’s content.
“To protect the hundreds of millions of people who connect and share on Facebook every day, we have automated systems that work in the background to maintain a trusted environment and protect our users from bad actors who often use links to spread spam and malware,” Facebook said Monday.
“From what we can tell, the address purchased for the movie was previously being used as a spam site and it hadn’t been refreshed in our system yet,” said Michael Kirkland, communications manager for Facebook.
Kirk responded in kind to all who helped by saying:
You did it again!! Because of your firm, loving, and clear voice, not only did Facebook welcome us back, YouTube also removed its block on our Unstoppable movie trailer. We are back online with full access. Thank you!! Fox News, Huffington Post, Entertainment Tonight, ABC, Drudge, and others have heard about your accomplishment and my phone is ringing off the hook to talk with me about how powerful the faith community is to accomplish good things when we put our hearts and minds together. They are listening!!
