The Pure Flix film based on the true story of former Planned Parenthood director turned pro-life advocate, Abby Johnson, ran into some unexpected problems during its opening weekend — and fans were outraged.
The Twitter account for the movie “Unplanned” was temporarily suspended, and users reported they couldn’t follow the account. After the account was reinstated, about 50,000 Twitter followers suddenly disappeared. Twitter officials called it an “error.”
“I think it’s outrageous! I’ve never experienced anything like this in my life,” Ashley Bratcher, the “Unplanned” actress who plays Abby Johnson in the film, told “Fox & Friends” Monday morning. “I think it’s incredibly suspicious given that we were suspended, then reinstated, then we lost followers, then we have people saying they can’t follow, then my own account was unfollowed from the movie. I couldn’t even follow my own movie.”
Fans of the movie were already peeved after it was given an R rating.
