    Just curious of how many people here were offended by it and how many weren't.

    “He’s human like anyone else, and everyone likes to make this myth about, ‘Oh, he’s steel, like kicking steel,’ or you hit him and he doesn’t fall. I’ll touch him enough times. I’ll touch him enough times and eventually he’ll crumble like the Twin Towers.”

    Fun fact:

    If you type Israel and Twin Towers into Google, you will be visited by the FBI

    Also:

    Romero can only fall by controlled demolition.

    No. I care more about intention than words.

    Getting offended is a phycological malady ..People enjoy being offended, so they examine all aspects of life and seize every opportunity... as in everything, degrees exist..

    Bad taste but people make jokes about tragedies all the time.

    I'm not because I don't know anyone who died in the towers, but I'm sure the people who do know those people are. It is a joke in very poor taste.

    He didn't intend to offend, so no I wouldn't be, it was just an ill thought out analogy.

    Not really but I'm not trying to tell people whether or not they should be offended, either.

    Not offended but it wasn't the right thing to say. Makes him look bad.
