Mattress Shop Sorry For 'Disgusting' 9/11 Ad

A Texas mattress shop has apologised for a "disgusting" and "offensive" advert to promote its "Twin Tower Sale".

The advert, now deleted from its Facebook page, features two men toppling into mattress towers emblazoned with the US flag.

In the foreground, shop manager Cherise Bonanno says: "What better way to remember 9/11 than with a Twin Tower sale?

"Right now you can get any sized mattress for a twin price. Full mattress? Twin price. Queen mattress? Twin price. King mattress? Twin price. Store-wide sale all day long."

Predictably, the video prompted fury on social media.

Evelyn Sainz Jauregui posted in the comments section: "I find it hard to believe you knew anyone or any of your employees knew anyone who lost their lives in 9/11!

Some people have class, but increasingly more are just crass.
Just another example of the devolution of society.

These liberals have no respect for the dead using a event like 9/11 for a ad is very thoughtless and irresponsible
