Orphan Ads Make Foster Groups Cry

Further evidence of the pussification of our beloved country came to light today as ABC News reports that ads for Juame Collet-Serra’s upcoming film Orphan are making foster care groups and adoptive parents sad. Boo friggin’ hoo.

Everyone’s apparently in an uproar over the line in the trailer “It must be hard to love an adopted child as much as your own.” When alerted to the whining, WB execs stated that they will recut the trailer to nix the offensive line. All this overly sensitive shit is getting old fast. Give me a fuckin’ break, will ya please?

Check out the uncut trailer below. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to the mall to have that line airbrushed on every article of clothing that I own.

    A lot of adoptive parents are angry about one line in this film: “It must be hard to love an adopted child like your own.”

    How pathetic that they chose to be angry about this movie line but are perfectly content that their adopted child’s birth certificate was permanently sealed from him/her with their permission! Yes, adoptees have to live their lives carrying around “amended” birth certificates and are NEVER allowed to see their original birth certificates containing their true names and the names of his/her true biological parents. Adopting parents get to have their names placed on the amended certificates as the birth parents! What lies!!!! These violations of a child’s rights does not concern the protestors because it works for them! It’s not their ethnicities, their heritages that are sealed. No, their newly purchased child will be forced to accept these lies are his/her truth. These self-righteous idiots own the copyrights to their adopted child’s identity and could care less that it’s FICTION that on the child’s birth certificate. It’s downright disgraceful and pathetic what people choose to protest.

    I’m an adoptee. A lot of my friends are adoptees. We want “Orphan” t-shirts to wear proudly because getting angry over one-liners and not giving a hoot about our civil rights is laughable.

    I really don’t see what the controversy is. It’s a simple question every one would ask in this position. Anyone who wouldn’t question this at some point in the process is delusional.

    I saw the trailer last night in Drag Me To Hell as well and this line was left in.

    I’m UK though so maybe just been removed for US audiences?

      It was still in the trailer attached to Drag Me to Hell on Saturday morning here in California (San Diego).

    Forgive me my Lord, but Jesus H. Friggin Christ! I saw the trailer today at Drag Me To Hell, wasn’t too terribly impressed. But if folks get their panties in a twist over a single line of dialog in a movie trailer, while the world faces real problems, then we are screwed as a society.

    Sorry, maybe went overboard. But seriously, what is so offensive about that line? Bet if it was some sweetness and light piece of fluff, they would have no problem with it.

    The PC police are ruining the world. But then again, you can’t pay for publicity like this, so maybe it’ll help the film in the long run. I just hope it’s good.
