'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' poster upsets fans who are reminded of 9/11

The new movie poster just came out for "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" and it really did upset a lot of fans when they released it. On Tuesday, Fox News shared about what everyone though and how they even had to apologize. The poster had people saying that it made them think of the horrors of 9/11 and that it was unacceptable.

Paramount Pictures sent out the picture along with a tweet to promote the new movie. The movie is actually coming out on September 11 and it showed a picture that was just hitting too close to home for most people. They probably should have picked another release date for this movie. In the picture, the turtles are all jumping from a high building that is on fire. It also happens to be set in New York City.

People went to social networks really upset about the movie poster. It didn't go over well with anyone and they should have paid more attention before posting this one. Luke Lewis of Buzzfeed in the UK was one of the first to notice and tweet about how inappropriate the poster and that they should think about that one again. It was bad enough that Paramount had to issue an apology later that day.

They spoke out saying, "We are deeply sorry to have used that artwork for the marketing materials promoting the September 11 opening in Australia. Combining that image and date was a mistake. We intended no offense and have taken immediate action to discontinue its use." At least they realize what they did was wrong, but the damage was already done when the poster for "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" was released.
