There's poor taste, and then there's this.

A couple of trolls were spotted near the Dragon Con festival in Atlanta sporting costumes crudely depicting the Twin Towers after they were attacked on September 11, 2001.

The doofuses' costumes employed Barbie dolls as terror victims and colored tissues as flames.

People vented their outrage on social media after a photo of the pair began circulating.

Dragon Con is a huge event bringing together thousands of sci-fi, fantasy and all-round cosplaying enthusiasts.

Organizers released a statement about the controversy, claiming they did not believe the costumers were admitted entry to the convention.

We share the concerns of everyone who was upset by these costumes. Their costumes were offensive, distasteful, and completely inappropriate. 

We became aware of these individuals in the evening and dispatched both Dragon Con and hotel security to find them, pull their badges, and escort them from the property for violating convention policies. They had apparently left the Dragon Con convention area shortly after the photographs were taken.

Based on other photographs we have seen, we do not believe that these individuals were members of Dragon Con, meaning that they had not purchased badges that would have allowed them to enter the convention.

So far, they have not been identified.

This Sunday is the 15th anniversary of the attack, which killed 2,996 people and prompted the War on Terror.
