TV star, singer and actor Farrah Abraham recently received backlash for her 9/11 tribute video. It was the 18th anniversary of the terror attack and Farrah took her daughter Sophia to One World Trade Centre, US. She captured a video and in her vlog, she mistakenly referred 9/11 as 7-Eleven. The latter is the name of a popular convenience store.
Farrah began her Vlog by saying, "Since it’s going to be September 11th, in honor of the Freedom Towers and the observatory deck and everything — 7-Eleven." This called for a severe backlash as netizens pointed out her mistake. She put up the video on her Instagram account and her followers were quick enough to pick on her mistake. She received comments like, "Its 9/11 not 711.. has the botox leaked into your brain," "take this down !!! So many mistakes and insensitivity," If you want to “enjoy the experience” of 7-11 you are in the wrong place," and "Unfollowing right now. The fact that she said 7-11 is disgusting. She is using this horrible moment in history to try to gain more fame and exploit her child even more. So shameful."
Farrah shared the video with the caption, "9/11 ONE WORLD TRADE CENTER @walkstours In memory of September 11th , I was in 5th grade when this happened & now Sophia being in 5th grade we enjoy this experience watch now link in bio FarrahTube."
Seems to be a genuine mistake, but surely a big one! Once Donald Trump too had made the same mistake while campaigning.
