Following the public outcry, a poster for the Naomi Watts-starring “Diana” has been removed from the site where the real-life Princess Diana perished in a car crash.
According to “The Hollywood Reporter,” the promotional poster had been displayed outside a Parisian metro station only feet away from the site of the accident, but was taken down on Monday.
“It was requested that the poster be removed Monday afternoon and we received confirmation that it had been removed Monday evening,” a spokesperson from the French distributor stated.
The image, which can be seen over at “THR,” shows Watts “in pearl and sapphire jewels with the tagline in French that read: ‘Discover the woman behind the legend.’”
The film premiered in the U.K. to negative reviews and currently holds a 3% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. “Diana” will hit the big screen in limited release on November 1 in the U.S.
Do you think it’s enough that the poster was taken down or should more be done to defend the late Princess’s memory?
