People Are Pretty Pissed About Walmart’s 9/11-Themed Soda Display

“We will never forget…THESE GREAT ROLLBACK PRICES, Y’ALL!”

With September 11th this weekend, we prepare to honor the lives of those lost on that horrific day nearly 15 years ago. A Walmart in Florida, however, tried to do so in very poor taste.

The retailer held a massive soda display featuring the World Trader Center built with boxes of Coke Zero.

It was directly below a banner reading “We Will Never Forget” was a rollback price of $3.33 on a carton of soda displayed between the Twin Towers.

According to BuzzFeed, Twitter user @online_shawn was strolling through a Walmart in the Sunshine State when he noticed the display. He then snapped a picture and posted it to his Twitter.

His post garnered national attention with many people shaming the company for trying to make a buck off  of the tragic date in such a distasteful way.

The in-store build out has since been taken down, according to a spokesperson for Walmart.
