No. Just no.
This tweet was up on AT&T 's official account for about an hour before being pulled.
AT&T apologized with another tweet shortly after the previous one was taken down, seen below.
We apologize to anyone who felt our post was in poor taste. The image was solely meant to pay respect to those affected by the 9/11 tragedy.

.@ATT your cool photoshop makes the memories of watching my parents cry in front of the television a lot easier to deal with today.

"We apologize to anyone who felt our post was in poor taste." boycott a company that uses a national tragedy as a marketing ploy! @att

I hope @ATT realizes that they have made a terrible mistake and they need a better apology than the one they're currently offering.
