Posters for the movie that had been displayed near some grade schools were taken down by Paramount Pictures on Thursday
Though 50 Cent claims protest centers on his upcoming movie posters is helping promote the film "Get Rich or Die Tryin,'" still the movie company has their own policy. Concerning controversy over billboards for the film, which community leaders claim glorify violence, Paramount Pictures has taken down posters displayed near some grade schools on Thursday.
The posters were removed soon after Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich sent a letter to Paramount, complaining that they promoted gun violence. Well, this maybe a good learning for both movie stars and studio that they next time would display a better and more educative project.
