A documentary painting anti-Semitic preacher Louis Farrakhan in a positive light will not stream on Netflix after an “internal miscommunication” led to false news reports, the company said.

“My Life’s Journey Through Music,” produced by the Nation of Islam leader’s son Joshua, was first reported to be on the list of films coming to Netflix in August, The Wrap reported.

The company on Tuesday blamed an error for the documentary being included on the list.

“Due to an internal miscommunication, it appeared to be scheduled for release on Netflix, but it is not,” a Netflix spokesperson said in a statement. “We apologize for any confusion this has caused.”

Mr. Farrakhan, famously known for his fiery pulpit rants against Jews and white people, teased the documentary on Twitter and Facebook. A tweet by Mr. Farrakhan about the film’s inclusion on Netflix has since been deleted.
