All hell broke loose in the middle east when the anti-Islamic film that parodied the prophet Muhammad was released onto the Internet last week. Four U.S. officials were killed in an attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi and the filmmaker has gone into hiding.
Not only has the filmmaker–who went by the name Sam Bacile, whose real name is Nakoula Basseley Nakoula–gone into hiding, but others affiliated with the film have gone in as well. Actress Cindy Lee Garcia said she was duped into acting in the film entitled “Innocence of Muslims” that included a scene where Prophet Muhammad puts his head between her legs. She has now sued because her life has been turned upside down. According to MSNBC, Garcia has received death threats, has been banned from watching her grandchildren, and was fired from her job. Now Garcia is suing saying she was hoodwinked…run amuck…bamboozled…into her role.
She said she was told that it was a film about ancient Egyptians. Ok…now I’m confused. Did she think it was about ancient Egyptian porn stars? Because by the time she let the actor portraying Muhammad put his head between her legs, something should’ve seemed suspicious to her. YouTube and Google are being named in the suit that charges “invasion of privacy” among other allegations.
“They told me it was based on what it was like 2,000 years ago at the time of the Lord,” Garcia said. “Like the time Christ was here.”
Well, we’ll see how this plays out in court. Good luck with that! Read more here.
