Warner Bros. CENSORS peace image from movie ads

by Small Green Frog Thursday, Apr. 03, 2003 at 5:54 PM

The Associated Press reported on April 1st. that Warner Brothers Studios is CENSORING its poster for the movie, "What a Girl Wants." This is an instance of Orwellian mind control where even the past must be edited and "corrected" in order to shape public opinion.

Warner Bros. CENSORS...

Print advertisements for the "teen comedy" featured a photo of Star Amanda Bynes wearing an American Flag t-shirt, and flashing the peace sign while she stands between two British Royal Guards. The movie poster was designed before the outbreak of war, and despite the fact that it has been distributed everywhere... Warner Bros. has retracted the poster and related ads, and released a new poster that has eliminated the peace sign gesture.

In the new poster version, Ms. Bynes is shown with her right hand at her side. The cowardly studio said Monday it feared the peace sign would be viewed as a "political message." In the film, Bynes plays an American girl who discovers her estranged father is a British politician. "What a Girl Wants" is set for release on Friday. Don't go see it.
