United Airlines Ad at Ground Zero Called Inappropriate


www.nbcnewyork.com

A United Airlines ad across the street from ground zero that reads "You're going to like where we land" has some New Yorkers saying the sign is insensitive because it is so close to where United Flight 175 struck the south tower on 9/11.

Ignorant. Tacky. Id spell out some curse words if it were possible, but Im sure it offend somebody somehow. This is really a disgrace to be honest. Im sure that these signs arent only around Ground Zero and are placed alot of other places but you know that the guy that put it up had some reservations doing so. I wonder how long it will be up.

I dunno, so does this mean restaurants in certain German cities can't put up billboards saying "you'll love what we're cooking up"?

They are free to put up whatever they want, where they want. Doesnt mean people have to like it. I was just posting my thoughts on the article that was written. If I lived in New York and had to see that everyday Id be a little peeved as well.

10+ years later.. Its an ad campaign that most likely didnt take placement into account. Its not meant to be insesative in the least.

At what point do we move on? We must never forget what occured, but we cant be held hostage to the past either.

for real though. time to move on already. this is starting to remind of the southerners that cling to the civil war bullcrap after all these years. it's only upsetting and offensive if you let it be.

I agree that we can't hold on to the past too much, but I feel like someone, at some point in the placement of the ad, should have thought about how insensitive it could be. I'm sure the families of the victims would agree.

Sorry, I wasn't trying to seem offensive to you, just giving my opinion, (in a very obscure way) on the whole "issue".
