you thought its tacky 9/11 tweet was in ‘poor taste’

9/11: A day for remembrance, prayer and resolve. Oh, and product placement, natch.
The AT&T tweet is gone, but say it with us: Twitchy is forever.

@ATT You're doing it very, very wrong.

After a flood of criticism, AT&T issued a douche-pology. The company is sorry if you were offended.
We apologize to anyone who felt our post was in poor taste. The image was solely meant to pay respect to those affected by the 9/11 tragedy.

It’s quite a day for hole-digging non-apology apologies.
Is anyone buying the explanation?
.@ATT It's even worse to lie about the reasoning behind it. It was not "Solely" meant to do anything but promote yourself tastelessly.

.@ATT No, the post was intended to show that you sell phones.
