Facebook blocks links, posts for new Kirk Cameron film ‘Unstoppable,’ saying it’s ‘spammy’
Thursday evening Kirk Cameron announced to his fans on Facebook that the social media giant has blocked all posts promoting and linking to his next film Unstoppable. (See the trailer below)
“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!!”
UPDATE: It appears to be resolved, but it’s worth monitoring – BBJ, The Dispatch
Cameron claims that users cannot even post to the site, the trailer or mention of the film – it will be blocked by Facebook.
“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.”
Synopsis: Kirk Cameron returns to movie theaters September 24 with the follow-up to his record-breaking, one-night theatrical event, Monumental. In UNSTOPPABLE, a brand-new documentary, Kirk 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?
