9/11 Special at Wisconsin Golf Course Cancelled After Negative Feedback

Josh Orton’s tweet says it all. Not surprisingly, the golf course received a lot of negative feedback.

 

From CBS New york,

Owner and general manager Marc Watts said he received death threats and threats to burn down the family-operated public golf course. The sheriff’s department sent a deputy there Tuesday and Watts said another officer will be back on Wednesday.

“We’re a little hurt by the fact that people are putting such a negative context on this,” Watts said. “I thought people would appreciate it.”

The special began two years ago to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the devastating attacks on our country, but it wasn’t until someone called them out on social media that they received this kind of backlash.

As someone who was born and raised in New York and saw the smoke from the attacks in my front yard for the following week, whenever I see something like this, I get angry.
