How Did A Gay Adult Actor End Up In A Hateful Anti-Muslim Film?
Unless you've been living under a rock you've heard about the inflammatory film The Innocence of Muslims (shown below) and its connection with attacks in Cairo, Yemen and Libya that left U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans dead.
But you may not have heard that a gay porn star starred in the aforementioned inflammatory film. His name is Tim Dax. He has appeared in such titles Slaughter Daughter and Folsom Undercover and sent the following statement to the gay blog Joe.My.God. after being identified by an eagle-eyed reader:
i can tell you i auditioned for a movie called Desert Storm that was about Ancient Warriors. My character was called Sampson on the paper with a few lines I got each day upon arriving on set. We never saw a full script or any lines after the day we shot them. Many questions were asked regarding absurdity of lines and situations. Sam the producer who I believed to be, but not certain as Egyptian. His reply would always to work with what we were given as he wrote the script. The clip that I saw part of today for the first time is questionable as to being my voice. The voice over work is dubious at best. a week and a half of work, 75 bucks a day & lunch. ; ) Can't tell you anymore than that other than I'm am very much NOT anti muslim. one world one love. Tim.
The film itself is a gross, hateful piece of trash featuring actors in brownface, offensively bad acting and dubbed-in lines calling the Islamic prophet Muhammad a lying, alcoholic child-rapist. Another actor in it echoes Dax's sentiment that they did not know what they were filming.
Furthermore, the film's creator "Sam Becile" was an alias for a man now identified as Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, a man whose film came to prominence via Morris Sadek, the right-wing anti-Islamic blogger who first highlighted the work on his blog.
Lastly, as inflammatory as the film is, it seemed only to be a pretext for well-organized terrorist groups to attack Americans in the Middle East. The Libyan atackers had high-grade weaponry and military vehicles ready for a coordinated six-hour attack on the embassy; hardly an impromptu response to an anti-Islamic hate film.
