The audacity of several large corporations won’t cease to amaze you, these three companies thought it would be okay to make light of 9/11 through their promotions.
Papa John’s is apologizing after an Ohio-based franchise launched an “extremely insensitive” promotion to sell large pizzas on the fifteenth anniversary of 9/11.
The promotion was called “9/11 Remembrance” and pictured five pizzas and a statement that said, “Never Forget, In Memory of Those We Have Lost, United We Shall Always Stand! Enjoy ANY LARGE PIZZA for $9.11.” The corresponding promo code was listed as “911RMBR.”
Papa John’s is not the first business to offer a controversial promotion on 9/11.
Just a few days ago, a Florida Walmart was under fire for creating a Coke display in the shape of the Twin Towers.
A mattress store in Texas also created a Twin Towers sale promotion that showed mattresses stacked in the shape of the Twin Towers while a woman announces a sale for all mattresses at a “twin price,” CNN reported. CNN has also reported the mattress store has shut down since the advertisement.
