Over sixteen years have passed since Princess Diana's fatal car crash inside the Pont de L'Alma tunnel in Paris.

And now, a movie poster promoting the late royal's biopic, "Diana," hangs near the site of her death. As expected, the advertisement has sparked outrage among many critics.

Diana's close friend, Rosa Monckton, shared her disdain during a recent interview with People magazine. Monckton called the promotion a "shameless attempt to publicize a film," adding that the film should not have been made in the first place.

According to TV Guide, the Paris City Hall responded to the controversial poster by saying the movie company legally placed all the ads throughout the city.

The film, starring Naomi Watts, will loosely showcase Princess Diana's last years of life. "Diana" will release in the U.S. on Nov. 1 but has already received negative reviews overseas.
