Seriously? ‘TMNT’ Poster Has An Exploding Skyscraper And 9/11 Release Date
Michael Bay’s latest film, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” released a promotional poster that has everyone wondering, “Why didn’t he just put Megan Fox on it?”
The Paramount-produced “TMNT” premieres Sept. 11 in Australia, and released a promotional poster on its Twitter Tuesday that shows the four heroic turtles leaping out of an exploding skyscraper, right into the release date.

Paramount quickly deleted the post after much backlash about its insensitivity on the Sept. 11 anniversary.
Can’t believe that 9/11 TMNT poster, It’s the icing on cake.

We’re guessing it wasn’t Paramount’s objective to depict or mock the World Trade Center tragedy, because the film premieres Aug. 8 in the United States, but someone on that marketing team is definitely getting canned. (RELATED: Megan Fox Shows Off Post-Baby Body)
