So this is basically about the movie “Couples Retreat” and a poster that was released in the United Kingdom that featured three couples instead of four, and incidentally they chose to cut out the African American couple. Now, I haven’t seen the movie so I don’t totally know what’s going on with it. I don’t know how big of a role each of the couples has, but what struck me about this article was the ad agency who is responsible for this kind of defended it. They had some valid points like don’t we have more pressing issues in the world than to get offended by a movie poster?
