Amber Langford and Annie Collinge, both 19, won a costume contest at a club in Chester, the U.K., but were criticized by loved ones of those killed on 9/11.
The only thing more horrifying than these costumes was that someone thought they merited a cash prize.
In a sickening stunt, two college students from Britain sparked outrage after they dressed as the burning Twin Towers and won a costume contest, the U.K. Sun reported.
Amber Langford and Annie Collinge, both 19-year-old students at the University of Chester, donned matching costumes labeled North Tower and South Tower, and wore head pieces that represented smoke billowing from the tops of the doomed skyscrapers and individuals leaping to their deaths. Their disturbing hats were topped off with American flags.
Stunningly, their crude costumes won them the best dressed award, and a cash prize, in a costume contest at Rosies nightclub in Chester.
But Langfords retired pilot father was horrified by his daughters antics and said he would have a little chat with her, the newspaper reported. Relatives of the 67 Brits who were among the nearly 3,000 people killed in the 9/11 attacks were disgusted by the girls disgraceful costumes.
This is unbelievable 9/11 happened in their lifetime, said Patricia Bingley, 79, who lost her son in the attacks. Its hard to understand where theyve come from to do this without a thought for those who died or the families left behind.
Two stupid beotches. They would be certain 0bama voters.
So, did anyone knock ‘em down?
I’m not offended.....Except maybe by the fact that they ruined the costumes by thinking they had to put a label on each “building”. It was already obvious what they were.
It was a private little Halloween party. Who gives a sh*t?
That shouldn’t be funny, BUUUUT....
Wonder if the would dress up as the gates at Auschwitz.
We lost more Brits than registered Republican NYC firemen.
At least they weren’t dressed up as a cowboy and an Indian.
I think next year I’ll dress up as a bloodied/dead Che Guevara, the go hang around the BSU campus.
