HV residents offended by twin towers T-shirt

Posted: Updated:

A T-shirt being sold in Sears Department Stores in Newburgh and Middletown has residents outraged over its tactlessness.

The shirt depicts the twin towers with the word "GOTCHA" underneath and residents say they couldn't believe their eyes when they saw it at their local Sears.

The company who makes the shirt is called Gotcha but some say it doesn't look like a brand name on the T-shirt.

Orange County Firefighter Adam Appel says he called the company several times to complain but the T-shirt is still being sold.
