I'm more offended by turtles who are superheroes, but I can see why this was removed. In the post-9/11 world it doesn't make a lot of sense to show exploding buildings in NYC.

If people want to be insulted by seeing movies with NYC explosions then at least get insulted at everything else in movies that depict human suffering.
