LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Telecommunications giant AT&T was under fire Wednesday after the company tweeted a picture of the Manhattan skyline on a cellphone.
The photo, which showed memorial lights symbolizing the Twin Towers, was accompanied with the words, “Never Forget.”
AT&T later removed the message and tweeted an apology after hundreds of angry Twitter users responded to the original post.
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.—

Wednesday marked the 12th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.
