AT&T Apologizes for 9/11 Tribute That Many Found Offensive
The Twitter post said “Never Forget” and featured a photo of the New York skyline with a smartphone showing the area where the Twin Towers stood. A post on BuzzFeed called it “without a doubt the tackiest 9/11 memorial on the Internet.”
“We apologize to anyone who felt our post was in poor taste,” AT&T said after the backlash. “The image was solely meant to pay respect to those affected by the 9/11 tragedy.”
The Los Angeles Lakers also posted a 9/11 tweet of dubious taste (since deleted).
