"I'm Not Ashamed," a true story based on the life of teenage Christian student Rachel Joy Scott who was killed in the 1999 Columbine high school shooting, is set to release this month.

Scott, played by Duck Dynasty's Sadie Robertson, was asked about her Christian faith just before she was killed by shooter Eric Harris. She was 17 years old at the time.

Harris asked her if she "still believed in God." When she replied affirmatively, the gunman said, "Then go be with him," before fatally shooting her in the head.

On April 20, 1999, Harris and Dylan Klebold, killed twelve students before taking their own lives.

The film, which releases on October 21, takes its course from Scott's diaries, in which she also wrote about wanting to be more open about her faith and to reach more people at school.

The movie is produced by Pure Flix Entertainment, which also distributed God's Not Dead, part one and two.

The production company writes on its website, "Hollywood has played a major role in shaping our current culture by controlling most of the media we experience today. We challenge you to stand up for Christ and share these heart-felt movies with your families, friends, communities and church to impact our world for Christ."

The movie's trailer was blocked by YouTube, and its user account was suspended for about 11 months because the Google company told Pure Flix that the film's trailer was in violation of its standards, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"We have decided to keep your account suspended based on our Community Guidelines and Terms of Service," YouTube told PureFlix.

However, shortly after The Hollywood Reporter contacted the Google company last month, the movie trailer was put back on YouTube.

On September 29, YouTube released a statement which says "With the massive volume of videos on our platform, sometimes we make the wrong call on content that is flagged by our community. When this is brought to our attention, we review the content and take appropriate action, including restoring videos or channels that were mistakenly removed."

PureFlix is suspecting an anti-Christian bias behind YouTube's decision. The YouTube did not specify why the movie trailer was deemed offensive even after PureFlix submitted multiple requests for explanation over the past year.
