Rose McGowan, an American actress released the following statement regarding her general disapproval of the X-Men: Apocalypse poster:
‘There is a major problem when the men and women at 20th Century Fox think casual violence against women is the way to market a film.'
She went on to wrap up her interview with Hollywood Reporter, regarding the matter, with:
"I’ll close with a text my friend sent, a conversation with his daughter. It follows: ‘My daughter and I were just having a deep discussion on the brutality of that hideous X-Men poster yesterday. Her words: 'Dad, why is that monster man committing violence against a woman?' This from a 9-year-old. If she can see it, why can’t Fox?"
The poster, as you can see from above depicts the villain Apocalypse essentially choking the living sh*t out of Mystique. McGowan's not the only one to step forward to express some outrage. The internet reactions are already running amok, check 'em out below. Because if you're like me, you probably had no idea who the heck Rose McGowan was..
What do you guys make of all this?
