A neurological disorder that is characterized by invoking the tragic events of September 11, 2001 in places where they don't belong.

The phrase was coined by Jon Stewart of The Daily Show on Octover 1, 2007.
Actual examples of 9/11 Tourette's:

"I also think there have been subsequent intervening events, September 11, which cast somewhat of a different light on the second ammendment."

"Won't you 9/11 help us 9/11? Because 9/11 is a terrible 9/11 to 9/11."

Any time a popular character with a large fanbase is put in a film, but is not treated in a manner deserving of his/her status among fans. This is especially heinous when the character's appearence was one of the main hooks attracting people to see the film. So named after Venom's lackluster role in Spider-Man 3 despite his enourmous popularity and status as Spider-Man's greatest rival.
I thought the Cyborg Ninja would have played a bigger role in the Metal Gear Solid movie, but it looks like it was another case of Venom Syndrome.
