Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Poster Causes Controversy With 9/11 Imagery
The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie is facing controversy after a poster for the film was tweeted in Australia on Tuesday, with the release date of September 11 — and imagery reminiscent of the 9/11 tragedy.

The Aussie poster features the four ninja turtles jumping off a fiery, exploding skyscraper (see right).
Paramount Pictures tweeted the image, but later deleted it after there was tremendous backlash over the insensitivity of the image.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is slated to be released a month earlier in the U.S. on August 8.
