In October I blogged about the film Couples Retreat and it’s suspect promotional material. Click here to read.
The international poster promoting the film (also seen here in Britain) does not feature African American actors Faizon Love and Kali Hawk.
However the US poster does feature both actors but they have both been deliberately placed right at the back.
Since then our very own Daily Mail has picked up on the story and featured this article via their website on Monday.
In response to the controversy Universal Pictures said, the poster had been changed to ‘simplify’ it for the UK and international market outside America. The studio added that it regretted causing offence and has abandoned plans to use the revised poster in other countries.
