‘INNOCENCE OF MUSLIMS’

Cast and Crew ‘Upset’ by Film

The cast and crew of the Innocence of Muslims say they were “misled” by the producer. A statement released on behalf of the 80 cast and crew members said, “The entire cast and crew are extremely upset and feel taken advantage of by the producer. We are 100% not behind this film and were grossly misled about its intent and purpose.” They added that they were shocked by “drastic rewrites” and “lies.” Anonymous U.S. officials have said that the attack was probably preplanned and not prompted by the film. They believe the attackers used the protests as a diversion.
