    The one on the left looks Hispanic and the one on the right looks white.

    Arabs are not this tasteless.

    In order to get away with controversial humor, you must first be funny. Make people laugh while they say: "That's f'd up."

    Needless to say that commercial fails miserably, at everything.

    It was pretty bad, but when they simulated the actual collapsing of the towers that was just unbelievable. I get that they're stupid, but wow, that is a special kind of stupid.

    9/11 jokes killed in San Antonio. But I could have sworn they were referencing the Twin Towers of yesteryear with Duncan and Robinson and the collapse was when Olajuwon trumped over him in the playoffs, no?

    It didn't. The store is now shut down due to the backlash.

    I just don't understand how some people can be so out of touch with reality and think this type of crap is ok. Looks like they're shut down now.

    They're not, but being consistent with the bigotry in your posts sounds about right.

    Poking fun and using a tragedy that resulted in the loss of 3000 American lives is never f'n okay.
