AT&T Tragedies: Company’s Insensitive 9/11 Tweet Sparks Funny Hashtag


at&t tragedies

September 11 is a day to reflect on the state of our nation, remember those we lost during the terrorist attacks, and sell cellphones. AT&T sparked a bit of a backlash (and the hashtag AT&T Tragedies) when they sent out the above photo this morning.

The tweet has been deleted and replaced with an apology …

… but that didn’t stop a group of internet comedians from creating a mocking meme at AT&T’s expense.

AT&T has apologized for their insensitive tweet but it doesn’t look like Twitter is going to let up anytime soon. The tacky ad has been passed around the social networking site and the hashtag #AT&TTragedies is still full of comedic gold.
