Egypt Court Bans YouTube for a Month Over Muhammed MovieAdrian Chen · 02/11/13 11:53AM
The fallout from the low-budget Innocence of Muslims YouTube video continues, incredibly. Egyptian judge Hassouna Tawfiq has just ordered that YouTube be blocked for 30 days in Egypt over the video, which was directed by a softcore porn director and portrayed Muhammed as a murderous child molester. The Egyptian courts sentenced seven people to death over the film last year, including filmmaker Mark Basseley Youssef. It's fair to say this Innocence of Muslims is now the most disastrous viral video in all of history, surpassing even "Friday."
