Actress in Muhammad Anti-Muslim Movie Sues for Fraud

Says she was duped into being in the movie

An actress who appears in the anti-Muslim film that has sparked riots in the Middle East is suing the filmmaker for fraud and slander and Google to try to get the movie's trailer removed online.

Cindy Lee Garcia's lawsuit filed Wednesday in Los Angeles claims the actress was duped by Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the man behind "Innocence of Muslims" who has been forced into hiding since its 14-minute trailer rose to prominence last week. She was unaware of the film's anti-Muslim content and that the pages of the script she received had no mention of the prophet Muhammad, according to her complaint.

The lawsuit states Garcia responded to an ad and thought she was appearing in an ancient Egyptian adventure film that was altered to give it an anti-Islamic message.
