Florida Walmart Built 9/11 Tribute Using 12-Packs of Coke
This Sunday is the 15th anniversary of 9/11. A Walmart in Panama City Beach, Florida decided to pay tribute by building a replica of the Twin Towers using 12-packs of Coke.
Which a lot of people think was in bad taste. They used black Coke Zero boxes for the towers, and 12-packs of Coke and Diet Coke for an American flag. So the Internet went nuts when someone posted a photo of it.
Coca-Cola released a statement yesterday that said they came up with the idea, and Walmart approved it. The display was taken down yesterday after people complained.
A Coke spokesperson said, "This display was meant to honor local firefighters and to support their organization's upcoming event. We sincerely apologize that anyone was offended or misunderstood its intent, and we have replaced the display."
