Outrage After San Antonio Mattress Company Airs Twin Tower Commercial

A San Antonio mattress company is being blasted after airing a commercial for a "Twin Tower sale", ahead of the 15th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

The ad from Miracle Mattress opens with three people standing in front of two stacks of mattresses.

The three promote the store's twin mattress sale for a twin price until the men then fall back into the stacks of mattresses behind them, obviously referring to the twin towers, causing them to fall over.

The woman lets out mock screams and at the end of the video says "We will never forget."

In response to building outrage, Miracle Mattress has apologized for the ad.

"To all of those who have seen our 9/11 sale. We are very sorry we have offended you. Our intentions were not to hurt anyone at all."
