Movie poster with 9/11 imagery causes controversy

Posted July 30th, 2014 @ 9:28am

Someone over at Paramount Pictures Australia wasn't thinking. The company tweeted a movie poster Tuesday showing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles jumping off a exploding skyscraper -- with a release date of September 11th.

Unsurprisingly, the Internet wasn't happy. One online commentator wrote, "WOW. Someone's getting fired for this," and another said, "Did Paramount really think this was a suitable poster for a movie release on September 11th?" The image was quickly deleted. 

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comes out on August 8th in the U.S
