I haven’t been to a 7-Eleven in a minute but from what I remember, the only falling towers to be found were in the chips aisle when I brushed up against them (ok, greedily pawed through them). But according to Farrah Abraham (yes, that’s her in her current form above), 7-Eleven is the site of the terror attacks that took place 18 years ago yesterday, September 11, 2001. To commemorate the tragedy, Farrah brought her daughter to New York City to film a video for her YouTube channel and Instagram page. During the introduction, Farrah referred to the events of 9/11 as “7-Eleven”. She then explained why it was important for her to share the memorial with her daughter, who has already been terrorized from watching her mom get butt injections. And instead of taking her to the actual 9/11 memorial and museum, took her on a fancy elevator ride at One World Trade Center, also known to Farrah as the Frito Tower.
According to People, even though Farrah can’t remember what it’s called, she did manage to follow the number one rule of 9/11, which is to never forget that it happened. In the video, Farrah proves this by letting her legions of fans (Balthazar Getty with multiple ghost accounts) know that she was in 5th grade when the towers fell. It’s like she was practically there!
At the beginning of the video, the reality star says, “Okay, so we wanted to do, since it’s gonna be September 11, in honor of the Freedom Towers, and observatory deck and everything, of 7-Eleven, we are going to do this. Wow, look at this guys.”
Abraham brushed right past her mistake to say how important she believes it to be that her daughter learn about the tragedy.
“I think this is gorgeous, beautiful, and in memory of a lot of loved ones, a lot of others lost,” she goes on. “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, and here we go.”
Lest you think this was a hollow gesture concocted to quench an unquenchable thirst, Farrah then offered some extremely relevant and thoughtful insight about what 9/11 represents for New York City and America. Keep in mind she did not visit the 9/11 memorial or museum, but rather got free tickets to ride an elevator and eat fried calamari.
“I kind of wanted to make this video while I’m here at the Freedom Tower for September 11,” she continued. “However we all deal with loss, I encourage you guys to check out my last videos for bereavement, depression, but it’s good to have a memorial for those. It’s great to visit loved ones and have good memories.”
If it makes you feel any better, Farrah’s memorial will be in the form of her archived YouTube channel and reruns of Teen Mom that the youth of 20 years from now will watch ironically while high on fermented Mars Juice.
