Matt Damon starrer Jason Borne has been embroiled in a controversy after actor Lena Dunham encouraged a protest against the display of guns in the film’s posters.
The 30-year-old Girls creator lent her support behind an Instagram user suggesting people to rip any posters they see of the film, reported Huffington Post.
The poster for the fifth instalment in Bourne franchise features The Martian star posing with a gun.
Dunham re-posted a picture from television producer Tami Sagher’s Instagram account, in which Damon’s gun-bearing picture has been peeled away.
“Hey New Yorkers, what if we do some peeling and get rid of the guns in the Jason Bourne subway ads. So tired of guns,” Sagher wrote while sharing the photo.
Dunham shared the post along with the caption, “Good idea...Let’s go!”
This comes after two black men - Alton Sterling and Philando Castile- were shot dead by cops, which led to the subsequent deaths of five officers in a shooting during the Black Lives Matter protest in Dallas.
