El NYPost declara que Warner Bros. le tomó el pelo a un grupo de niños que actuaron como extras en una filmación, prometiéndoles conseguirles prótesis a cambio de su actuación en el film. Los miembros fueron prometidos en Junio, pero jamás llegaron, ante la desolación de los damnificados.

“Young Nkululo Mnisi – whose arms and legs were cut off by machete-wielding rebels – used to be taunted by cruel classmates as “baboon” because of the way he ran on his stumps and crutches. Mnisi told a South African newspaper that the dream that kept him going was the promise of getting artificial limbs so he’d be able to play soccer like a normal child.

But months after filming ended, Mnisi and his fellow amputees were still waiting. When they asked Warner Bros. about the promised prosthetics, they were allegedly told, “You will have to wait for December, when the movie comes out, so we can get some publicity out of it.” Link (via boingboing)
