Last month Netflix announced that it would release a biopic about controversial Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. Those plans have changed.
What We Know:
- The company has announced that Farrakhan’s doc “My Life’s Journey Through Music,” will not be streamed after all. A company spokesperson on Tuesday said that prior reports about the release were the result of a communication error, according to Variety.
- The controversial pastor has been frequently criticized for his hate speech and bigoted statements about gays, white people and Jewish people.
Twitter removed Louis Farrakhan’s verified status in June after he posted a video with the caption “thoroughly and completely unmasking the Satanic Jew and the Synagogue of Satan.”
The tweet also included a link to the full sermon, in which he claimed that Judaism is a “system of tricks and lies” and that former president Barack Obama was under “under Jewish influence” when he advocated for same-sex marriage.
Farrakhan had announced the biopic release on Twitter Monday and wrote that the film would be coming to the service in August.
- Last March, Republican Congressman Todd Rokita called on the House of Representatives to condemn the Nation of Islam leader and putting pressure on several House Democrats who have had ties to him.
We will continue to watch for the release of the film on another platform.
