Absolutely obscene. What makes anyone think this would be appropriate, ever?

Via Gothamist, HT Debra Burlingame.

Devo co-founder Jerry Casale got married last week on September 11th, and for some reason the happy couple decided it was a fantastic idea to make the deadliest terrorist attack in American history their wedding theme. Festive! We’re guessing they registered for this 9/11 cheese plate too.

Someone sent TMZ photos and details about Casale and Krista Napp’s event:

Jerry Casale — Devo’s singer and bassist — married Krista Napp on Friday at Michael’s Restaurant in Santa Monica. Of course, Friday marked the 14th anniversary of the September 11th attacks … a fact the bride and groom made sure their guests would never forget.
Fact 1: Their cake was the World Trade Center, with their images on top of each tower.
Fact 2: Guests got real box cutters as party favors.
Fact 3: Their table setting cards had an image of a “Gerald & Krista” engraved box cutter.

TMZ adds, “it seems outrageous and offensive to make the murder of 2,977 people the centerpiece of your wedding — we’re told Jerry and Krista’s friends weren’t the least bit fazed because they both have a dark and strange sense of humor. As one guest put it … Jerry has ‘real heart as an artist, and is a super sweet guy.'”


Wow, just wow.

    Will these freaks renew their vows next year at Auschwitz?

    De-Evolution band members were from Ohio, Kent State area, and the impetus for the band’s formation was the Kent State shooting. Their first single was ‘Mongoloid’. His brother and one other band member have died in the last few years. Fatalists ageing are worse than ageing hippies. He should have used the band’s founding impetus for his wedding theme, but then leftists know that they can’t make fun of Kent State. Coward. As someone sang, Whip It, Whip It Good.

    Surprised they didn’t give guests hats instead of box cutters.
