The advertisement has been deleted, but a YouTube user recorded it and uploaded a version. In the video, the store’s owner Cherise Bonanno asks the camera, “What better way to remember 9/11 than with a Twin Tower sale?”

The letter was written by Mike Bonanno, who identifies himself as the owner of the Miracle Mattress chain. He writes that the video was posted without his knowledge of approval. The comments beneath it are outraged.
