When it comes to the act of remembering of the 9/11 terror attacks, even male sex toy company Fleshlight wanted in on the act.

The sex toy company tweeted out a tribute to those who lost their lives with a picture of American flags in fog at sunset.

Many were surprised by the tweet, with some responding with “wow,” and “I refuse to believe this is real even though I’m looking right at it,” “thank you for your patriotism.”

Build-A-Bear, a kid’s toy store where kids build their own stuffed bear, learned the hard way that, when it comes to memorial tributes, tact is key. It drew criticism fora tweet showing a bear in army camouflage with an American Flag with the caption “We Will Not Forget.”

It seems adult toy industry beats out the kid’s toy industry today.
