It's not the freakin' tattoo

From here:
Recently Hollywood are taking anime and turning them into live action movies. While some of the movies are looking really horrible, some might have a chance. If you compare the comments for each of the movies, even if their responding to the trailer, there’s a similarity. Fans are complaining the characters in the live action movie do not look like the characters in the anime.
Lets take The Last Airbender movie as an example. In the anime, Aang has a blue downward arrow on his forehead. In the movie, there’s an arrow but it’s more of a tattoo.

Ignoring the fact that Avatar isn't an anime, are there actually complaints going around focused on the tattoo? As opposed to, y'know, the racial inaccuracy of the casting?
