New York law firm, advertising agency under fire over 9/11 ad

30 Mar

Robert Keiley, a New York firefighter and model, is upset with a law firm he modeled for. The picture shows him holding a picture of 9/11, with words saying “”I was there. And now, Worby Groner Edelman & Napoli Bern is there for me.” The kicker? Keiley didn’t become a firefighter until 2004.

“It’s an insult to the Fire Department. It’s an insult to all the families who lost people that day,” Keiley said. “It makes me look like I’m cashing in on 9/11, saying I was there even though I was never there, and that I’m sick and possibly suing, trying to get a chunk of money.”

Worby Groner Edelman & Napoli Bern have removed the ad from circulation and issued an apology realizing their wrong-doings.
