Texas Mattress Commercial Contains Tasteless 9/11 Reenactment [VIDEO]
Miracle Mattress of San Antonio has done the unthinkable, as it WAS planning using the harrowing 9/11 anniversary to have a mega-sale on mattresses, even remaking SICK references to the Twin Towers. The Texas mattress store unveiled the ad on their Facebook and received QUICK backlash for how shocking and insensitive it was.
The store's Facebook page has been swamped with messages of OUTRAGE from ALL OVER THE COUNTRY after the AD went viral.
"It was stupid. It was a stupid idea that we sent out. We apologize for our stupidity and we hope you forgive us for what we've done," owner Cherise Bonanno told a TV station reporting on the controversial ad. While the sale appears to still be going on, the store says it will donate 30% of all the weekend's mattress sales to the 9/11 Foundation.
One comment stood out from a person named Jess and put it brilliantly when she said, "Any company who can create a commercial as offensive and un-American as theirs deserves no part of the American dream."
