Angelina not “WANTED” in Britain!

LONDON (Reuters) – Angelina Jolie might ooze Hollywood glamour, but if she’s armed and looking dangerous, the actress is not welcome in Britain.

Britain’s media watchdog, the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA), has banned two posters of Jolie promoting the film “Wanted” after upholding complaints that the images of the gun-toting actress glamorized the use of guns and violence.

One poster showed the actress crouching and holding a gun pointing upward while the other showed her lying on her back across a car’s hood, brandishing guns.

The ASA said it had received 17 complaints from people who thought the ads were irresponsible because they glorify and glamorize gun crime at a time when there is increasing public concern in Britain about it.

Some also complained that the posters for the high-tech action thriller co-starring James McAvoy and Morgan Freeman were unsuitable to be seen by children.
