DESECRATING SACRED GROUND: 9/11 Museum Hosted Exclusive Booze-fueled Party On The Grave of 1,115 Victims

Published on May 21, 2014

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is among a group of dozens of guests accused of ‘desecrating’ the graves of 9/11 victims by ‘drinking, eating and laughing’ at a VIP-only opening party for the museum.

The sacred site became a private club for invited guests on Tuesday night. According to reports, some first responders, who were supposed to be able to tour the museum for free prior to its official Wednesday opening, were turned away due to party preparations.

‘They were drinking, eating and laughing when this is pretty much a gravesite,’ a National September 11 Memorial & Museum employee, who asked not to be named, told the newspaper of the 60 or so partygoers.

‘I don’t think alcohol should be allowed in there. It’s a sacred ground and they desecrated it.’

Bloomberg and Condé Nast executives reportedly noshed on crab cakes and shrimp cocktail hors d’oeuvres at the black tie dedication ceremony for the museum.

The display includes prominent videos of the twin towers collapsing, photos of people falling from them and voice mail messages from people in hijacked planes.
