I don’t if you saw the piece of pop media poop called “Wanted,” but the film, starring one half of Brangelina, has just hit the UK. The film’s ads, featuring a pouty, potty-mouthed Angie, have been banned. Well, at least the film got some press, yeah?
The ASA said:
“We acknowledged most viewers would understand the posters reflected the content of an action film. However, we considered that because the ads featured a glamorous actress, action poses, several images of or related to guns and aspirational text, they could be seen to glamorise the use of guns and violence. We concluded (they) could be seen to condone violence by glorifying or glamorising the use of guns.”
