Sick: Pranksters mock Applebee’s 9/11 tribute with vile fake retweets; Update: One of them gets huffy with Twitchy

As Twitchy reported earlier, alleged comedian Joe Mande decided to commemorate 9/11 by cruelly mocking corporate Twitter accounts sending out memorial messages like this one:

It seems that Mande’s callousness inspired a few other Twitter jackasses, and they set their sights on Applebee’s with fake retweets of the restaurant chain’s Twitter account.

Others, including comedian Jake Fogelnest, quickly followed suit:

Several people fell for the prank:

And Applebee’s was forced to clarify that the retweets weren’t genuine:

Applebee’s also addressed the perpetrators of the prank without realizing it:

“Brendan” thought it was hilarious:

And he doubled down:

Brendan also extended his idiocy beyond Applebee’s:

What did Applebee’s do to warrant such viciousness? Nothing but express gratitude to 9/11’s heroes and mourn those who lost their lives.

We agree. The disgusting people who saw fit to taunt companies like Applebee’s should be ashamed of themselves. Sadly, to hope that they possess the necessary intellectual capacity for such introspection is to hope for too much.

Update:

Stop the presses! Super-celebrity comedian Jake Fogelnest has put us in our place:

He even taught Michelle Malkin a lesson:

Welp, guess we just got pwned.

    Okay, between the apology to the animals who stormed our embassy in Egypt and these f****** hipsters thinking they’re hi-larious for mocking us on 9/11, I’m really, really disgusted with what our country has become.

        Is there something wrong with being “old”? Furthermore, one need not be “old” to have class and afford others due dignity and respect.

      • Mini14’sBlkStrat

        I didn’t think they let retarded pussyboys like you here either, go back to the huffington post where they’re All mentally challenged, and you and your friends won’t look so ignorant.

          I don’t need an article or anyone to do my thinking for me. It’s
          funny hearing the leftists say they’re free thinkers, but then all say
          the same B.S. Does it piss you off to think that one day, you’ll be working for someone like me?

            I find the fact that you are, ostensibly, an adult and haven’t learned that it is “you’re” not “your” funny. Not in a classically humorous sense, rather with an ironic bemusement that you are a product of a flawed institution and find these gentlemen to be witty.

          • Mini14’sBlkStrat

      People seem to forget that politics, and political thought swing like a pendulum. Liberals are running entertainment, and liberalism is the “politics of cool” but when it swings back, do you think people will forget how much fun you’ve made of them?
      So yes, thank you for this shining example of liberal hypocrisy, and adding to the narrative that all liberals are angry bigoted closet cases who take responsibility for nothing, and poo-poo anyone who disagrees with them about anything.

    • Chris Jones

      @Jake Fogelnest You’re pathetic. Just two questions for you.

      1. How can you live with yourself after mocking those trying to pay tribute to the thousands who lost their lives on that tragic day 11 years ago.

      2. How much did all those “likes” your comment has received cost you? A $1.50, $2 a “Like”? No way they’re real, can’t imagine enough people even follow you to bother liking such an inane and inappropriate individual.

      9/11 is not a day for jokes. If you don’t have enough self-awareness to understand that, then it is time you look in the mirror and grow up.

  • TomJB

    Guess I have to make a trip to Applebee’s one of these next few evenings.

  • krillionare

    Get off your fucking high horse, twitchy. Do you honestly thank Applebee’s gives a flat fuck about a single soul?

    • grais

      I thank(sic) they give a better f*ck than you do, kid.

    • http://profiles.google.com/sanddog Ms Anonymous

      How many people do you employ? Hell, do you even have a job? How much money do you pay in federal, state and local taxes across the country? I’m pretty sure Applebee’s has made a larger positive contribution to this nation than you have.

      I suppose that’s why you’re so damned bitter. Just another loser with a hand out.

  • http://twitter.com/tcsprencel T.C. Sprencel

    C’mon folks, this isn’t difficult. We all know that 9/11 was an inside job primarily funded by the evil corporate interests behind Applebee’s, who scammed the world into believing terrorists attacked America so that patriotic Americans would spend millions commemorating the event at distinctly American restaurants, such as, you guessed it, good ol’ Applebee’s. It’s a vicious cycle that was almost too easy to set in motion. That’s why REAL ‘merican heroes like John Freiler are fighting back.

    • http://twitter.com/tcsprencel T.C. Sprencel

      Forgot to mention Jake Fogelnest. Also a hero.

        Given that a hero is typically revered for noble qualities, your criteria is a bit off.

    This story is almost as bad as Applebees and their one day only special – Twin Tower terrorizing tacos for only $9.11. How repulsive…

      So, because you say he is a “good guy”, he should be lauded for making ignorant and insensitive comments?

      • snappykyle

        Yes. He’s a comedian. I disagree with his politics on the whole but what he is doing is social and political comedic commentary. Sometimes it’s subtle, sometimes it’s crude, but that is the way comedy works. Unlike some comedians who are really just unfunny political shills, Jake Fogelnest is funny and his comedy is a jab at one side of societal orthodoxy. It happens to be that I’m conservative so sometimes I cringe at his targets, but if you don’t respect the political discourse element of comedy then you’re a simpleton. And Jake was making light of how a big business was latching onto a tragedy to promote itself, dolt.

    Applebees prides itself as a “family” restaurant, which is why liberals detest it so much. Ideas like “Family”, “normality” and self determination are diametrically opposed to the main pillars of communism. Which is what this is all about.

  • ChuckUnderscore

    Don’t you think it best to stay away from, and ignore, Twitter? It is too easy to be astonishingly crude and rude to any person that attempts to use the medium. People who do these kinds of rude things think that they are both clever and funny. They are neither, of course. And they do certainly get their ‘just’ rewards. Remember: You are not punished for your sins. You are punished BY them.
