not considering special cases (really weird particles), "an object" cannot be instantaneously accelerated just by the fact that said object has mass. Having that mass creates inertia, and it will resist (albeit a very short period of time) the pull of the black hole. Also, the words speed and acceleration shouldn`t be used interchangeably. Acceleration is how fast the velocity or speed is changing.
