A producer of the upcoming indie film “Habit,” which hundreds of thousands have demanded be pulled ahead of its release due to its “blasphemes” depictions of Jesus Christ, says “the story has been completely blown out of proportion.”

“Of course the story has been completely blown out of proportion,” the film’s executive producer Cassian Elwes wrote on Twitter, responding to controversy the film has garnered months after entertainment news outlets EonlineET and Entertainment Weekly first reported that Paris Jackson was "cast as Jesus" and would be "playing Jesus," as her lesbian character has a "Jesus fetish."

Similarly, the News Break app also reported in April that Jackson, daughter of the late pop icon Michael Jackson, "will play a gender-bent version of that Holy figure who just celebrated his resurrection this past Sunday."
