‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ fans upset by 9/11 poster art

It’s easy to make fun of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot. The trailer looks like a Michael Bay parody and frightens children, and the first set of movie posters were weirdly phallic.

The latest TMNT problem, however, is less funny and more just offensive.

In a now-deleted tweet from Paramount Pictures, the Australian TMNT poster was revealed to be more than a little insensitive. The image showed the four turtles leaping from the roof of an exploding building, but Paramount’s poster designers had failed to take into account the film’s Australian release date: Sept. 11.
