Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham might be used to causing controversy, but she faced major backlash after confusing the 9/11 terror attacks with 7-Eleven, the American convenience store.
She posted a video of her and her daughter making the trip to the Freedom Tower in New York on the 18th anniversary of the single deadliest terror attack in human history, in which 2,996 people lost their lives.
While her intentions of teaching her daughter about the tragedy may have been good, she gained attention for all the wrong reasons after she mistakenly called 9/11 ‘7-Eleven’.
Farrah, 28, says in the video: ‘Okay, so we wanted to do, since it’s gonna be September 11, in honour of the Freedom Towers, and observatory deck and everything, of 7-Eleven, we are going to do this.
‘I think this is gorgeous, beautiful, and in memory of a lot of loved ones, a lot of others lost. I remember being in fifth grade when September 11 attacks happened, Sophia was not born yet, so I think it’s really important that Sophia learns about it.’
Fans quickly flooded the reality TV star and porn actress’s comments, writing: ‘Its 9/11 not 711… has the botox leaked into your brain?’ and ‘take this down!!! So many mistakes and insensitivity’.
Another commented: ‘If you want to “enjoy the experience” of 7-11 you are in the wrong place’ and ‘Using the word “enjoy” may not be the best ….’

Her followers were shocked that she could post something with such a glaring mistake, writing: ‘Unfollowing right now. The fact that she said 7-11 is disgusting. She is using this horrible moment in history to try to gain more fame and exploit her child even more. So shameful.’
Farrah has yet to comment on the slip up, but given it’s not the first time she’s been ‘cancelled’, she’s probably not planning on addressing it any time soon.
