Tries to minimize it by comparing it with an earlier plane crash
Controversial comedian Jimmy Carr sparked outrage on the anniversary of 9/11 - by making a joke about air disasters.
The 38-year-old stand-up tweeted: 'Sept 11th Date of terrible air disaster. When Eastern Airlines Flt 212 crashed in 1974. Killing 69. No one will forget that in a hurry.'
But his followers, including Crimewatch presenter Rav Wilding, 33, blasted him for having a sick sense of humour. Wilding tweeted: '@jimmycarr why would you even attempt to make a joke about 09/11? Seriously bad taste.'
And other users were quick to blast the stand-up with scores of his 1.25million followers unfollowing him in protest.
