In 2012, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee took part in a telemarketing campaign that involved making over four million robocalls to promote the film. This was considered to be a violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, as it was in the guise of a political survey, and a class-action lawsuit was later filed. Originally, it was ultimately dismissed in 2014, but in 2015, that decision was overturned by the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals, and the lawsuit was able to proceed. In 2017, U.S. District Court Judge E. Richard Webber ordered AIC Communications, the company involved with the campaign on behalf of Veritas Entertainment, to pay the sum of $32,424,930 in damages.
