LOS ANGELES (AP) — An actress who appears in the anti-Muslim film trailer that has been blamed for causing deadly violence in the Muslim World says she and her family have been threatened and her career damaged since the trailer began airing on YouTube.
Cindy Lee Garcia spoke briefly to reporters Thursday before heading into court to ask a judge to issue an injunction demanding the 14-minute trailer for "Innocence of Muslims" be pulled from YouTube.
Garcia says she was duped by the man behind the clip and that neither anti-Muslim content nor the name of the prophet Muhammad were mentioned in the script for the film she thought she was making.
Garcia says her life has been turned upside down since the trailer went on the Web.
She says both her career and her mental well-being have been damaged.
