...a Northern Ireland politician has said.
The attraction in Sichuan province, about 930 miles from the sea, will let hundreds of people at a time experience the shipwreck.

Bitch, gripe and complain. No matter what anybody does, someone will find it offensive.
Why is that in poorer taste than making a $billion buck off it with a movie?
Bad taste is having a sno-cone concession stand nearby.
Go on, have the Titanic iceberg lettuce salad. I dare ya.
Oh heavens to pete, there are no more living survivors of the early 1900s tragedy! Its well out of the PTSD zone for any living being. What’s wrong with it? Do we have to be so sennnnnnnsitive to everything? Is skin that thin these days? (I know it is with libs, that’s why they exclusively are offended by these things it seems when they come along. Libs in ANY country)....
Titanic without the iceberg is like Sherlock without Moriarty, or Superman without kryptonite. No conflict, no show.
“Why is that in poorer taste than making a $billion buck off it with a movie?”
Hollywood gets away with murder in the department of offensive.
Hey—its 100 years ago the silly ship sank and took all those lives with her to the bottom—I think the idea is clever and it will make money. Its not like a Holocaust wax museum that depicts the suffering of Jews—and their extermination in Gas Chambers.

That was back in 1912. I think its funny.
Get over it you English fairies, and learn how to swim.
It is a very popular movie in China. Besides, what’s in bad taste about it. People need to get a life.
I go to Universal Studio to experience an earthquake simulation and I love the ride.
When they had the “Back Draft” feature I went through it I don’t know how many times.
Brought tears to my eyes. I love being scared and anything spicy.
I ain’t heard no one bitch about the various movies of this tragedy.
seems the last one made a few stars and some pretty decent money.
And the Band Played On....
Yeah, you know. The memories still leave a wound open....
