A trailer for Charlie Sheen‘s new movie, “9/11,” based on the September 11 attacks, was released on Friday, and many people are calling it “beyond offensive” and “manipulative.”
“Dead Lord, the Charlie Sheen 9/11 trailer is beyond offensive. It looks like a very poorly made TV movie. Just horrific,” one user tweeted.
“I watched a trailer for a movie called ‘9/11’ starring Charlie Sheen and it’s awful and manipulative and makes me mad at everyone involved,” tweeted another.
“9/11,” which stars Sheen, Whoopi Goldberg and Gina Gershon, is based on true events when five people were stuck in an elevator in the World Trade Center’s North Tower during the terror attacks.
“This Charlie Sheen 9/11 movie trailer is Extremely Tasteless and Incredibly Unnecessary,” another Twitter user said. “I wish that wasn’t a real sentence but yay jokes?”
Representatives for Black Bear Studios and 20th Century Fox have not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
