Are these 9/11 tributes in bad taste?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This Sunday is the 15th anniversary of 9/11.  And a Walmart in Panama City Beach, Florida decided to pay tribute by building a replica of the Twin Towers . . . using 12-packs of COKE.  Which a lot of people think was in bad taste.

They used black Coke Zero boxes for the towers, and 12-packs of Coke and Diet Coke for an American flag.  So the Internet went nuts when someone posted a photo of it.

Coca-Cola released a statement yesterday that said THEY came up with the idea, and Walmart approved it.  But they took it down yesterday after people complained. 

 

Also, a mattress place in San Antonio posted a 9/11-themed ad, where two employees knock over two stacks of mattresses.  Then the owner says, “Never forget.”  She admitted it was a “stupid” idea though, and they pulled it down.
