Mattress Store’s Tasteless 9/11-Themed ‘Twin Tower’ Commercial Sparks Major Backlash

On Wednesday night, San Antonio-based Miracle Mattress attempted to commemorate the 15th anniversary of 9/11 with a “Twin Tower Sale.” The promotion, which offered any sized mattress for the price of a twin mattress, included a tasteless commercial which was uploaded to the company’s Facebook page. The 21-second spot featured manager Cherise Bonanno announcing the sale, and two employees who end up crashing into two towers made of mattresses. After a massive amount of negative feedback, the video was removed from Facebook and owner Mike Bonanno offered a public apology. On Friday the company announced it would be closed indefinitely.
