Michael Moore’s controversial documentary “Planet of the Humans” has been removed from YouTube due to a copyright dispute.
The filmmaker executive produced the documentary along with Jeff Gibbs, who issued a statement calling the removal from YouTube a “blatant act of censorship.” The film was streaming for free on YouTube and asked questions about purported “green solutions” to fossil fuels, arguing that they offer only a false sense of progress on environmental issues and climate change. It posits that only addressing population growth and mass consumption will subvert an apocalyptic scenario.
According to Deadline, the movie was taken down after being viewed by more than 8 million people due to a copyright claim over a disputed four seconds of footage that comes up 37 minutes into the documentary. More
