Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles  911 Poster

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles poster with 9/11 resemblance, has prompted Paramount to apologize. The company, tweeted the Australian poster of the upcoming Michael Bay-produced movie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, where the Turtles can be seen falling from a burning building that looks like the Twin Towers, with the release date September 11th written beneath. The company was slammed for being careless.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles tweet shocked many with September 11 like burning buildings.

On Tuesday, Paramount Pictures, tweeted the Australian poster of the forthcoming movie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles directed by Jonathan Liebesman.

In the photo, the Turtles can be seen falling from a burning building, with the release date 9.11.14 written at the bottom.

The company captioned the pic:

Check out the official poster for TNMT in cinema September 11.

Within minutes the company was flooded with angry tweets. Many asked how can they have been so insensitive to use the likeness of the Twin Towers?

Some asked if this was a hoax and if it was it was very distasteful. Few demanded that the person who authorized the poster be fired.

When Paramount understood their mistake, they deleted the tweet and issued an apology:

“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.”

The action movie stars Pete Ploszek as Leonardo, Alan Ritchson in the role of Raphael, Noel Fisher as Michelangelo and Jeremy Howard as Donatello.

Megan Fox, takes on the role of April O’Neil in the flick which will hit theaters in America on August 8th.

This is the first time Fox is working with Bay since those Hitler comments. What are your thoughts on the poster? Was all of this a promotional coup?
