Ask for Cherise.

SAN ANTONIO (WOAI) -- A local mattress company advertising a 9/11 memorial "Twin Tower sale" is now facing scrutiny across social media. The ad shows two stacks of mattresses piled up collapsing to the ground while the owner of the store says "We will never forget."

"We are not hate, we are love, we are somebody that stands out, we are miracle mattress, we make miracles happen. And for our lives to be in danger that is not what we ever wanted,” said Miracle Mattress owner Cherise Bonanno.

Cherise Bonanno says she didn't realize the 20 second ad would cause the controversy it has.

"It was stupid, it was a stupid idea that we sent out and we apologize for our stupidity and we really hope that you forgive us for what we have done,” said Bonnano.

'Never Forget', indeed.

This went up on their Facebook page earlier today.
