Teens dressed as Twin Towers win halloween costume contest

  • Two British teens have won the worst halloween costume idea this year. 

    They went to a nightclub wearing costumes that looked like Twin Towers with markings that said "South Tower" and "North Tower." The costumes were even decorated with hijacked planes and the wreckage. 

    The two 19-year-olds won the contest and received about $250 worth of shopping vouchers. 

    It's not surprising that the story aroused anger but the teens insisted that they "never meant to be offensive" and only wanted to "depict a serious, modern-day horror."
