YouTube blocked trailer for Christian movie
‘I’m Not Ashamed’ for months, film execs say
The video site has since reinstated the trailer, but those closest to the film say the months of being kept off the video sharing site have damaged the publicity for the movie.
“It’s 11 months we’ve been fighting this battle,” “I’m Not Ashamed” co-writer Bodie Thoene told FOX411. “They actually took down the trailer and would not permit it to be put up.”
Thoene added, “[YouTube] would not give any explanation, no explanation whatsoever, why they… [took it down]…we’ve lost 11 months of being able to use social media freely. We feel it’s an interference with our freedom of expression.”
