Women can't win! Not even tiny humanoid blue ones who live in mushrooms!
Yep — the latest bit of sexism has been aimed at the Smurfs of all things.
In pics of the Smurfs: The Lost Village movie poster (above) in the ultra-Orthodox town of Bnei Brak near Tel Aviv, Israel, fans quickly noticed Smurfette had been completely cropped out!

The town is known for its VERY conservative stance on the images of women on billboards and in advertisements. The belief is that any image of a woman can potentially be sexually provocative or offensive.
Gross. But separately… Smurfette??? She's a cartoon character!
According to Israeli newspaper Haaretz, the PR company for the movie's distributor, Forum Film, chose to

Katy Perry was a knockout Smurfette at the first Smurfs premiere back in 2011, but this time around she tread a far more mature route.
The gorgeous singer looked lovely and ladylike at the Smurfs 2 premiere in El Lay on Sunday in a royal blue Tadashi Shoji dress with floral appliqued bodice and a flared leather skirt.
Talk about a sophisticated Smurf!
We do kinda miss the 28-year-old's awesome blue hair, but she made up for it with light blue crystal Swarovski earrings and a pair of blue satin Pedro Garcia pumps on her feet.

Katy Perry is on a roll!
The 28-year-old continues to look like the hottest woman EVER during her press appearances to promote Smurfs 2.
At another photocall for the animated flick in Mexico on Monday, KatyKat put her glorious boobage on display in a seksi and shimmery block print dress by Zimmermann, which she styled with black pumps, hoop earrings, and a single bangle.
No need for ostentatious accessories when you've got such a bangin' bod!
She's basically Smurfette come to life and she is SPECTACULAR!

Julianne Hough should consider changing her name to Julianne Hawt!
The dancing queen covered InStyle’s Makeover issue and made Smurfette totally jelly!
Hough wore a blue BCBGeneration which is perfect for fall, especially since that’s the color of the moment. She swiped her stylist’s belt and wore a Dana Rebecca Designs necklace and Evocateur bracelet.
In the interview, she dishes

Just so you know, this totally makes sense. He was the voice of Clumsy Smurf in the movie. LOL!
Yesterday, a very special ceremony was held at Grauman's Chinese Theater as The Smurfs were asked to leave their hand and footprints in the iconic courtyard.
Accompanied by Anton Yelchin, Papa Smurf, Clumsy Smurf and Smurfette all received the honor of leaving their mark amongst other Hollywood icons.
Wonder if this is going to upset as many people as the Twilight kids did a few months ago? Anyone feel the need to riot about this latest addition?
Check out the gallery (below) for more pics from the scene.

Talk about life imitating cartoon!
Sunday night was the world premiere of The Smurfs and Katy Perry fit right in!
The voice of Smurfette arrived to the New York premiere looking like a real life version of the character in a creation by The Blonds.
To complete her Smurf-tastic look, Katy wore blue Louboutins and blue eyeshadow.

We're sure she got the part based on more than just the opportunity to make a tongue-in-cheek shout-out to her own song! LOLz!
As we've reported, Katy Perry will be providing the voice of Smurfette in the upcoming movie adaptation of the cartoon The Smurfs, and apparently, she'll be referencing her break-out smash, I Kissed a Girl, during the film at some point by claiming:
