Two British Students Dressed As The 9/11 Twin Towers For Halloween

The result? They won £150 in a costume competition and received a surge of online abuse.

And they came first, taking home £150.

Twitter users were outraged, and many tweeted the nightclub to express their anger.

And to think, years back @rosieschester bouncers wouldn't let my friend in because his passport said he was born in Wales. Nice work, guys.

Pretty soon @RosiesProblems, a Twitter account for "people that go to Rosies to have a laugh and joke about their night out the next day" started getting abuse too.

Why would the thought of going as the twin towers even cross your mind?? Completely & utter airheads. @RosiesProblems

@RosiesProblems what an absolute joke, people's families have been ripped apart by 9/11, no respect or consideration taken what so ever.

So they cleared things up with an explanatory tweet.

Can I just point out. It's not me who let the girls in. It was @rosieschester. I'm simply a joke page for people that go to Rosie's to....

Which is just as well, because the abuse started to get very personal.

Anyone know if Amber Langford and/or Annie Collinge (the two fucktards who dressed up as the Twin Towers) have Twitter accounts?

I didn't know anything about it, but I'm not happy at all. She knows I'm a pilot and that's not cool at all. We will be having a little chat, I think.
We are extremely concerned that an award of vouchers was made to two young women who were dressed in a distasteful and offensive manner.There was a serious error of judgement made on the evening by a contracted DJ to award such a prize and we apologise to anybody who may have been upset or offended by this.A full investigation by the company is taking place.
We utterly condemn the appalling photos.Both organisations have begun an urgent investigation with a view to taking the necessary action.
We never meant to be offensive, but we apologise if any offence was caused.The idea was to depict a modern-day horror that happened in our lifetime and was not intended as a joke.
