This 9/11-themed golf course ad - a real thing that ran in the Wisconsin State Journal - was snapped by Josh Orton. Neda Semnani with Roll Call tweeted, “#neverforget 9/11 by golfing on the cheap #america.” Peter Botte with the New York Daily News seemed fed up: “Come on.” Gary Mills with the Florida Times-Union did too: “What is wrong with people?” Philip Bump at The Atlantic Wire had some perspective on the matter, “Remember the inappropriate golf tweet during the March on Washington anniversary? Here's the 9/11 version.” Jay Busbee at Yahoo! Sports looked on the bright side: “Rest easy,Golf Channel. You no longer have the worst golf-news tie-in. How about golf for $9.11 to commemorate 9/11?” Really, the whole thing isn’t unlike The Onion’s 9/11 Subway Ad, which was fake.
Sali Hughes was “thinking of trying Alexa Chung's excuse on [her] publishers.” Get ready to be infuriated. Lucy Tobin at the London Evening Standard tweeted: “Same!” Harriet Addison at The Times said, “Oh, what joy it must be, being Alexa Chung's editor.”
