Paramount Released A Distasteful Poster For Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! See Why They're Now Apologizing Profusely To Fans!
It seems like Paramount Pictures has gotten itself into a little bit of controversy.
Two days ago, Paramount Australia went to its Twitter to show off its new promotional poster for the Australian release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
That all sounds well and good, except for the fact that the poster shows Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Donatello jumping off of a skyscraper that has just exploded. And right beneath them is the date the movie is coming out… September 11th.
We understand that the poster is for an Australian audience, and 9/11 is an American tragedy. But, it still seems rather distasteful towards all of the victims.
Paramount AU has since apologized and removed the poster from its social media pages.
A note to Paramount: Maybe keep it simple, like have the TMNT team eating some pizza in a sewer. That shouldn't really offend anybody.
