Two British Co-Eds Dress up as the Burning Twin Towers AND Win a Costume Contest

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 Rosie’s nightclub in Chester.

But Langford’s retired pilot father was horrified by his daughter’s 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. “It’s hard to understand where they’ve come from to do this without a thought for those who died or the families left behind.”

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?

Wait, I'm confused. Does it somehow become ok after a certain amount of time? Would dressing up as the Battle of Bunker Hill be alright because it happened a long time ago? If one is acceptable, both are.

I don't understand people.

At least they weren’t dressed up as a cowboy and an Indian.
