Wise Move: NYC's Disgusting 9/11 Museum Pulls "Heart Target Cheese Tray" From Gift Shop

Bad enough that there is a "gift shop".

But seriously, who is the abject moron who thought an American map cheese tray with HEARTS marking the terrorist attack spots, was a good idea.

Surely, there is someone's name on the order form?

Cheesy gift: National September 11 Memorial Museum's gift shop decided to remove from its shelves a decorative cheese platter in the shape of the United States, with heart symbols marking the spots where the hijacked planes struck on 9/11


"According to the museum's website, the proceeds from gift shop sales benefit 'developing and sustaining' the memorial, which is headed by executives who earn privately-funded six-figure salaries."

"The museum plans to operate on a $63million budget with money raised through admission fees and donations."

"The gift shop was funded with a $5million donation from Paul Napoli and Marc Bern, partners in a law firm which made $200,0000 representing 10,000 Ground Zero workers in a lawsuit."
