'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Poster Sparks 9-11 Comparisons


This Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles poster is causing quite the raucous.

Paramount Pictures Australia tweeted an official poster of the heroes in a half-shell jumping from a burning high-rise building. The tweet announced the Australian release date of the film, writing: "Check out the official poster for #TMNT in cinemas September 11!"

Between the image of the turtles jumping from a burning skyscraper, the fact that the movie is opening on 9-11 and that the characters reside in New York City in the movie, this new poster isn't sitting too well with everyone.

The tweet has since been deleted. 

Twitter user Luke Whiston commented on the post, writing: "Prepare to gasp at the most poorly judged poster and date combo imaginable..."

Do you find the tweet and poster offensive? 
TMNT comes out in the U.S. on August 8, 2014.
