Two University of Chester students wore Twin Towers costumes for a costume contest at a Halloween party in a Chester nightclub. And they won the competition.
New York Daily News reported that 19-year old Amber Langford and Annie Collinge wore matching costumes of the “North Tower” and “South Tower.” The teens wore headgear topped by American flags that depicted the smoke arising from the Towers, and the people who leapt to their deaths.
The students won $240 for their efforts from a nightclub known as Rosie’s in Chester. Owner of the bar, the Stonegate Pub Company, was not pleased with the award.
"We are extremely concerned that an award of vouchers was made to two young women who were dressed in a distasteful and offensive manner," said a company spokesman, according to Fox News.

A full investigation is taking place."
