‘Innocence of Muslims’ Actress Sues Filmmaker, Google & Youtube

Cindy Lee Garcia sues Nakoula

Cindy Lee Garcia, an actress who performed in Innocence of Muslims, is suing filmmaker Nakoula Basseley Nakoula for duping her into a role that could get her killed.

Garcia says she was fooled into believing the anti-Islam hate flick that sparked violent protests at U.S. embassies across the Middle East would be a desert adventure film. Now she’s the star of a film that has extremists calling for bloody revenge.

She’s also suing Google and its subsidiary Youtube — where the video is hosted, Reuters reports. She’s demanding the video be taken offline.

Garcia claims she thought the film was called Desert Warrior — “a historical Arabian Desert film.”

Now she’s living in hiding and unable to visit her grandchildren.
