    Everyone Is Freaking Out About The Fact A Sex Toy Company Just Tweeted About 9/11

    Apparently sex toy companies mourn, too.

    Every year various brands on Twitter try — and usually completely fail — to commemorate 9/11. This year, Fleshlight decided to get in on the game:

    Today is 13th anniversary of 9/11. We remember those lost, & honor those still fighting for freedom. #911NeverForget

    (Just in case you don't know, Fleshlight is a company that makes latex sex toys for men. Don't google it.)

    After Fleshlight posted its #NeverForget tweet, Twitter kind of exploded with users not really sure what to make of it.

    I dare you to find a more awkward brand tweet about 9/11 https://t.co/689utFFrIr

    That awkward moment when the Fleshlight Twitter account does a better job of remembering 9/11 than the @WhiteHouse or @BarackObama accounts.

    Hopefully being honoured by Fleshlight will allow the ghosts of those killed on 9/11 to find some peace.

    @Fleshlight @BuzzFeedAndrew I refuse to believe this is real even though I'm looking right at it.

    When will brands finally understand that maybe they just don't need to post about 9/11?
