Couples Retreat, Poster

Universal

Couples Retreat featured four couples trying to fix their relationships on a tropical island, right?

Then how come posters for the film's release in the U.K. only show Vince Vaughn, Malin Akerman, Jon Favreau, Kristin Davis, Jason Bateman and Kristen Bell? Where are Faizon Love and Kali Hawk?

Needless to say, the omission of the black pair in the British advertisements has many shouting racism.

A rep for Universal, the studio behind the film that took in $102 million in the U.S. alone, told the Daily Mail that the poster had been "simplified" for international markets and the studio "regretted causing offense."

Rom-Com Racism
Do you think the Brits are haters for disinviting Faizon Love and Kali Hawk to the tropical island getaway posters?
