Actress Cindy Lee Garcia who acted in the film, ‘Innocence of Muslims’ sues the film producer for fraud and slander.
Nakoula Basseley Nakoula alias Sam Bacile is reported to be the producer.
She also named Google Inc and its YouTube unit as defendants, asked that the film be removed from YouTube and said her right to privacy had been violated.
The suit accuses Nakoula, Google and YouTube of invasion of privacy, unfair business practices, the use of Garcia’s likeness without permission and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
“This lawsuit is not an attack on the First Amendment nor on the right for Americans to say what they think, but does request that the offending content be removed from the Internet,” the lawsuit said.
Does the producer’s freedom of expression gives him the right to use and cheat the actress in expressing his freedom of speech?
And what about the rights of actress Cindy Lee Garcia?
I really pity the actress if she really was cheated by the producer.
And why did Sam Bacile cheated the actress if he thinks that it is okay to produce the “hateful” film?
