It Will Be A True Miracle If ‘Miracle Mattress’ Can Stay In Business After Controversial 9/11 Ad

miracle-mattress1

(PCM) There are literally no words to fully describe the idiocy of the folks over at Miracle Mattress store in San Antonio, Texas. The store manger a two colleagues decided to create a video showcasing their sale in honor of the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks calling it the Twin Towers sale.

Never ever should a national tragedy such as this one be used to boost sales, however these morons thought that it was fantastic idea, that is until the negative feedback began rolling in! You have to see this crazy video. We can’t believe anyone would think this was a good idea, as it is in complete poor taste.

The video has since gone viral and it was initially posted to the Miracle Mattress Facebook page. The offensive video was quickly removed and the store manager Cherise Bonnano who is seen in the video, has issued an emotional apology to the San Antonio news. She had the audacity to say “We are not hate, we are love. We are somebody that stands out. We’re Miracle Mattress, we make miracles happen. For our lives to be in danger, that’s not what we ever wanted,

Store owner Mike Bonnano also issued a statement saying “Effective immediately, Miracle Mattress will review our entire marketing strategy to ensure a stringent approval process will be in place to stop this from ever happening again. We will also engage a personnel review to hold these employees accountable for their actions.”

The store has also said that 30% of all sales made this weekend will be donated to the 9/11 foundation, however something tells us that is not going to be very much money as many people are already threatening to boycott the store. The store is currently closed indefinitely after they received several threats. No word on if they plan on reopening anytime soon.
