Diet pepsi can in iraq

Why do I see a can that has 9/11 very disrespectful content.2 towers and an airplane and on of towers has a star snowflake on the tower where a plane struck.

One of the towers is shorter than the othere one like it is falling. I have been a pepsi lover since birth but what the heck is this? When i was little I was taking my dad's pepsi since i could crawl. This is hurting many of my friends and family.

Some people I know never want to buy pepsi products again.

not a very happy customer.WHY?

Reflection in the water should be a giveaway that its not WTC. If you'd ever been there you'd know there's no water near WTC. Closest is at least a HALF MILE AWAY.

This picture makes me absolutely sick to my stomach who ever designed this can knew EXACTLY what they were doing and trying to say and laughing at Americans the entire time

HI All - I work for PepsiCo in Chicago, IL USA. Here is the real story... We understand from some of our consumers that a Diet Pepsi can designed and sold in the Middle East portraying the growth of active regional cities has been misinterpreted. We are sorry that some people found this design insensitive, which was never our intention as the graphics on this can were inspired by the Dubai skyline. As soon as this matter was brought to our attention in October, we immediately stopped production of the can and took action to change the design. The new can, which features an abstract design, is already in the Middle East market. All old designs will be replaced over the next few weeks.

Maybe someone in the manufactoring process in Dubai had the idea of a "Two finger salute" to the Western Occupation of Eraq .... If you stop to think about it ..... Very cleverly done! .... Pepsi is an Iconic American Trademark .... A drink almost exclusively drunk by the American troops ...What better way to say "UP YOUR'S AMERICA" .... How long have they been able to get away with it? ..... I bet they have been "Laughing up their Sleeves" at us for ages !

Anyone that thinks this can depicts the 9/11 attack is completely ***. It's the Dubai skyline, with a plane flying over it.

Hey, guess what? Many cities all over the world have towers of equal height (not unlike the ones depicted on the can, that also happen to look nothing like the wtc). And you know what else? Airplanes fly over them. Deal with it. If this can offends you, you have the ignorance and sensitivity of a child.

Is this can real? I heard that it is sold in Iraq. If this is true, it's done in poor taste and I hope someone sues pepsi BIGTIME.

I guess this is a reflection of the lack of respect you have for human life.
