Kirk Cameron has a new movie coming out. He claims Youtube and Facebook are censoring him.
This is what he posted on Facebook:
Yup. That message of his showed up on my Facebook wall as well.
But wait a minute. Inquisitr claims the actor may have lied to his fans and created a fake story to promote his new movie.
The Christian filmmaker urged his fans to fight the oppressive social network and share the link to his movie on Facebook.
And they did. Thousands of them. The Facebook post quickly gained more than 100,000 shares, more than 40,000 likes, and close to 8,000 comments. The majority of those comments talked about how it was shameful of Facebook to block such a well-intentioned movie and praised Kirk Cameron for doing God’s work.
Of course, there were a few other comments that claimed that Kirk Cameron had conjured up the entire controversy in order to promote his new movie. The proof? Well, working links. Several people posted working links to Kirk Cameron’s movie despite the fact that it had been “banned” by Facebook.
The article notes that a number of people share this person’s sentiments:
So, what’s going on? We may never know.
Either Kirk Cameron made a mistake. He typed in the wrong URL or hit the wrong button and saw a “spam” message. The actor then overreacted and accused Facebook for banning his site.
Or, Kirk Cameron made up a fake story, lied to his fans, and created a fake controversy to get people to talk about his movie.
Hmmm… I can’t help but wonder what’s going on, considering one of my posts was recently lifted by Ken Ham to create false controversy to promote one of his conferences. Controversy sells, and it turns out those who claim to hold the “truth” don’t seem to have any qualms against lying to promote their cause.
P.S. Here’s the (not censored) trailer for Cameron’s movie:
