Controversial 9\/11 Coke display in Walmart removed | WSB-TV

A Coca-Cola display has quickly been removed after it was criticized for depicting New York City’s twin towers.

The World Trade Center towers were destroyed and thousands were killed when two hijacked planes crashed into the towers on Sept. 11, 2001.

BuzzFeed News reported that Shawn Richard tweeted a photo of the display Tuesday while on vacation in Panama City Beach, Florida, with his girlfriend.

“We stopped and stared at it like, ‘Oh my god,'” Richard told BuzzFeed News. “Nobody seemed to be noticing it, it wasn’t very crowded, and I got the feeling that it had just been assembled. So we took some pics and went on our way.”

But were the soft drinks still $3.33 a case? I struggle to get cases for under $4 where I currently am. For $3.33 I’d buy them off a Daesh flag.

    How about cheap mattresses? Would you put up with it for a cheap mattress?

    I fully expect in my lifetime to see “Sept. 11 Day Sales!” as rising generations who never actually experienced seeing the stuff broadcast live and maybe don’t feel the revulsion I feel at it being used as a marketing tactic.

    Shoot, some of my students were toddlers when it happened. (Time to go roll the hems of my trousers, and try to eat a peach….)
