Kirk Cameron made allegations that Facebook blocked users from accessing the trailer to his movie Unstoppable. Now Facebook responded that the ban was a mistake by its automated system.
Kirk Cameron raised a "shit storm" on social media claiming that Facebook is blocking access to the trailer of his movie titled Unstoppable. The claim had merit as Facebook has now acknowledged that their automatic spam filter had made a mistake. The Wrap posted a statement from Facebook saying that the link to the Unstoppable trailer was falsely identified as a link to a malware site for a short period of time. Youtube also had initially blocked the trailer, but it is now back online. Kirk Cameron is mostly known as actor from the TV series Growing Pains. Now he is making movies as a Christian activist.
This little spam filter mistake is gold for Kirk Cameron as he got into trending news headlines. In Unstoppable, a new documentary, Kirk Cameron takes you on a personal and inspiring journey to better understand the biggest doubt-raiser in faith: Where is God in the midst of tragedy and suffering? Unstoppable will be in movie theaters on September 24th for one-night only. More details on Unstoppable can be found here.
