Event organizers for the 40th annual Popcorn Festival in Valparaiso, Indiana, are being ripped to shreds online over a “tasteless” 9/11 parade float unveiled Saturday.

The controversial float featured the twin towers with smoke billowing up from them, with a black hole in each appearing to represent where the airplanes struck the World Trade Center buildings during the attacks 20 years ago.

The float also featured an audio recording of farewell messages that victims’ families received as their loved ones realized their fate was sealed.
