A Texas mattress company that was condemned for airing a commercial promoting its “Twin Tower Sale” will be “closed indefinitely,” its owner said Friday.
Miracle Mattress promised to “be silent” through Sunday’s 9/11 anniversary and reiterated its apology to people offended by its commercial that featured a pair of employees toppling two towers of mattresses, according to a statement issued by the company’s owner, Mike Bonanno.
“We take full responsibility for our actions and sincerely regret the hurt and pain caused by this disrespectful advertising campaign,” Bonanno said.
The 20-second commercial shows three employees enthusiastically offering any size mattress for the price of a twin-size one. “What better way to remember 9/11 than with a Twin Tower sale?” a woman says. Two men then fall over backwards, knocking over two towers of mattresses. “We’ll never forget,” the woman says.
The ad prompted widespread anger and calls for the business to close permanently.
I sometimes feel like I’m being played when certain kinds of trivial stories break the Internet. This is one of those trivial stories.
Yes, the commercial isn’t funny. See it and judge for yourself.
But it seems that people have been trained to be offended by everything except for things that really matter.
What should be offending people is Obama’s lawlessness and Hillary’s coverups, but instead they’re diverted by a stupid commercial. Oh, and just as importantly, they should be offended by the false narrative about who and how the Twin Towers ended up in a pile of rubble.
Good grief, them’s some ugly people in that commercial. Between the two ugly shitskins and the fattie, I’m ashamed to be an American. But really, this is what diversity and feminism have brought us.
