Twin Towers Costumes

A British nightclub is being criticized for awarding a top prize in a Halloween costume contest to two women dressed as burning Twin Towers.

More from Fox News:

According to the Telegraph, 19-year-old Amber Langford and Annie Collinge's outfits included models of the two hijacked planes crashing into the New York City skyscrapers.

The costumes had models of people falling from the towers and were marked North Tower and South Tower.

The women were awarded Best Fancy Dress by a DJ at Rosies, a club in Chester.

"We are extremely concerned that an award of vouchers was made to two young women who were dressed in a distasteful and offensive manner," a spokesman for the Stonegate Pub Company, which owns Rosies, said. "There was a serious error of judgment made on the evening by a contracted DJ to award such a prize and we apologize to anybody who may have been upset or offended by this. A full investigation by the company is taking place."

According to the Telegraph, Langford and Collinge apologized for the costumes.

"We never meant to be offensive, but we apologize if any offense was caused," they said. "The idea was to depict a modern-day horror that happened in our lifetime and was not intended as a joke."

Almost 3,000 people died in the al-Qaeda attacks on September 11, 2001.
