MANHATTAN — A concert cruise company that sails around New York Harbor, including past the World Trade Center Site, yanked an image of the Twin Towers collapsing from its website amid an outcry from 9/11 victims.
Rocks Off Entertainment’s website featured the unmistakable silhouette of the Twin Towers, one of which was mid-collapse, as part of their New York skyline.
The images outraged relatives of 9/11 victims, including Jim Riches, 63, whose firefighter son Jimmy died on 9/11.
“It’s a disgrace and disrespectful to the families of the people who died that day,” said Riches.
“These guys are trying to get money by being provocative and showing the towers blowing up and then turning around and saying let’s go have a nice rock concert.”
The company runs concert cruises throughout New York Harbor featuring live music ranging from Grateful Dead tribute bands to the Electric Six.
