Dreamworks movie ad outrages citizens

This ad is peeving people according to the drugereport.

The poster shows an American flag flying upside down, which is a standard distress call, but it's upsetting the public as this symbolic image is a bit raw after 9/11.

Even films and ad campaigns that didn't directly involve terrorism or images of New York's former skyline were being withdrawn. DreamWorks began removing ads Thursday for the military prison drama The Last Castle because it featured an upside-down flag — a symbol of distress. Studio officials said they feared the so-called "teaser" poster would seem alarming to an already distressed public.
