Video: YouTube Bans Anti-Islam Movie ‘Innocence of Muslims’ In Libya, Egypt Following Attacks Against U.S. Diplomats
YouTube has blocked the anti-Islam video that sparked riots in Egypt and Libya on Wednesday. The movie "Innocence of Muslims" was plastered around the Internet following the riots because of its laughably bad acting and editing.
Historian Tom Holland's Channel 4 film Islam: The Untold Story sparked more than 1,000 complaints when it was broadcast. Holland was threatened online with a torrent of abusive messages on Twitter.
A Channel 4 spokeswoman said: "Having taken security advice, we have reluctantly cancelled a planned screening of the programme Islam: The Untold Story. We remain extremely proud of the film which is still available to view on 4oD."
