A Texas mattress store was forced to apologize after posting a commercial for its upcoming “Twin Towers” sale to Facebook.
The now-deleted advertisement told potential buyers that “right now, you can get any size mattress for a twin price.” (GRAPHIC VIDEO: The ‘Clearest 9/11 Footage On The Internet’ Goes Viral)
Though the ad was quickly removed, many users still took issue with the “disgusting and disrespectful display.”
“To all of those who have seen our 9/11 sale. We are very sorry we have offended you,” Miracle Mattress wrote in a Facebook apology. “Our intentions were not to hurt anyone at all. Our staff is full of military and some relatives have passed away due to 9/11.”
“We are promoters of peace and love. We have given abundantly to our community here in San Antonio and wish to remain known as a company who respects and loves others. We hope you find it in your hearts to forgive us. Please accept our apology.”
