Kirk Cameron is claiming that his new movie Unstoppable has been banned from Facebook.
On Thursday the actor claimed that the social network called the movie too “spammy” and therefore decided to block the film.
On his personal Facebook page Kirk Cameron writes:
“Facebook has officially “blocked” me and you (and everyone else) from posting any link to my new movie at UnstoppableTheMovieDOTcom, labeling the content as “abusive”, “unsafe”, and “spammy”! I can’t even write the real link here, or Facebook would block this post too!!”
Cameron types to his followers:
“Try to post it yourself and see! We have been officially shut down by Facebook and unable to get any response from them. This is my most personal film about faith, hope, and love, and about why God allows bad things to happen to good people. What is “abusive” or “unsafe” about that?! Please help us encourage Facebook to unblock our website soon by sharing this post with your friends so more people can see this transparent, faith-building project.”
Many users claim they have had no problem posting the link to their person accounts. Either Kirk Cameron is attempting to create a controversy where there isn’t one, or he is really bad at using Facebook.
So either Kirk Cameron is lying and creating a controversy in order to get people talking about his movie, or Facebook has fixed the problem and has unmarked the website as “spammy.”
If you can’t find out about the movie on Facebook here is all you need to know: It will be in theaters on September 24 with a one night only run.
Here’s the trailer for Kirk Cameron’s Unstoppable:
