'Corporate' Finale Exploits 9/11 in Attempt to Provoke Fox News

By Callista Ring | March 15, 2018 12:07 AM EDT
The writers of Comedy Central’s anti-business Corporate are exploiting the tragedy of 9/11 to get a rise out of conservative viewers. Star Jake Weisman told The Daily Beast, “Honestly, I want Fox News to see it and I want them to get really mad,” regarding their season finale mocking the tragedy that resulted in the deaths of 2,996 people. Corporate writers are apparently oblivious to irony as this week’s episode exploits 9/11 in order to portray businesses as exploiting 9/11 for monetary gain. Clearly pandering to a liberal audience’s desire to see corporations accused of egregious evils, Wednesday’s finale, “Remember Day,” features a fictitious world where a business attempts to turn the anniversary of 9/11 into a profit making national holiday, complete with goose dinners, office parties, and red, white, and blue apparel.
