    Default UK teens' burning World Trade Center costumes spark outrage

    Teens' Burning Twin Towers Costume Causes Outrage

    By ABC News | ABC News Blogs – 4 hours ago...


    Teens' Burning Twin Towers Costume Causes Outrage (ABC News).

    By Anna Pan

    Two British teenagers had an unconventional Halloween costume last week: the burning Twin Towers.

    Amber Langford and Annie Collinge, 19-year-old students at the University of Chester, dressed up as the Twin Towers for Halloween. The pair donned American flags on their heads and wore tower outfits that featured planes, explosions, smoke and people jumping to their deaths from the upper floors.

    Langford and Collinge won the "best dressed" award at Rosie's nightclub in Chester that night, and received about $240 in shopping vouchers.

    "Both the University of Chester and Chester Students' Union utterly condemn the appalling photos which have been shared on social media," said the University of Chester and Chester Students' Union in a joint statement. "Both organizations have begun an urgent investigation into the circumstances around which these images have been taken with a view to taking the necessary action."

    The teens said in a statement, "We never meant to be offensive, but we apologize if any offense was caused. The idea was to depict a serious, modern-day horror that happened in our lifetime and was not intended as a joke."

    "Although their behavior is insensitive, I think it really reflects the important task that we have to educate future generations," said Mary Fetchet, founding director of Voices of September 11th. "Not focusing on the horror of the day, but about the wonderful lives of those victims who died."

    I dig sick humour but this kind of shit crosses the line.

    Yeah lets make costumes that represent the loss of thousands of innocent lives, then we'll go get loaded, win some cash. Oh how cool.

    as sensitive has PHG wearing nazi costumes. some things, you just NEVER joke about.
    "We never meant to be offensive, but we apologize if any offense was caused. The idea was to depict a serious, modern-day horror that happened in our lifetime and was not intended as a joke."
    add lying, stupid, insensitive, douchey, fucking morons to their list of descriptives. They used the non-apology/apology! Their ugly mugs tell me ALL I need to know about what the cows intended.

    On top of offensive and crass, these costumes also lack vision and are far from innovative. Airhead vapid little ho's.

    Maybe they should have dressed as air raid sirens.

    This is one of the most insensitive things I think I have ever heard (and I've heard a lot). Little psychopaths. No feeling or empathy for pain and horrific suffering of these people and their loved ones. Hope they buy something with the money and choke on it. Then we'll make a costume of that.

    I think they should have dressed up as a couple of over-exposed bathroom stalls. With American flags flying over them. And when you press a button on the side, a voice from the inside says, "I ate too much pumpkin!"
