Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Are Too Busy Being Teenagers, Mutants, Ninjas, and Turtles To Be Sensitive About 9/11

That's an Australian poster for the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles; in America we're getting the film on August 8 and not, as noted by the poster featuring an exploding skyscraper, September 11.

Today's bit of Ninja Turtle unfortunateness comes via The Dissolve. And say what you will about that poster, but it's still less offensive than Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J's new Ninja Turtles theme song.
