As Twitchy reported earlier, alleged comedian Joe Mande decided to commemorate 9/11 by cruelly mocking corporate Twitter accounts sending out memorial messages like this one:

Today we honor the victims and heroes of 9/11. We will never forget.

— Applebee's (@Applebees) September 11, 2012

It seems that Mande’s callousness inspired a few other Twitter jackasses, and they set their sights on Applebee’s with fake retweets of the restaurant chain’s Twitter account.

gross. RT @Applebees If you've lost someone special, bring in their death certificate today for 10% off all apps (Until 6 PM, dine-in only)!

— john freiler (@johnfreiler) September 11, 2012

whaWHAT?! RT @Applebees Be sure to stop in for our special Twin Towers Fudge Explosion Sundae for only $2.99 from 6-9 p.m. on Sept. 11 :)

— Xanax Papa (@diarrhea) September 11, 2012

Others, including comedian Jake Fogelnest, quickly followed suit:

Wow. RT @Applebees: There's a fake tweet going around about a Twin Towers Fudge Explosion Sundae for $2.99. The price is actually $3.99.

— Jake Fogelnest (@jakefogelnest) September 11, 2012

.@Applebees can we get free apps in honor of the fallen? I will also settle for half off.

— Joey P (@j____p) September 11, 2012

With our 2 for $20 menu! RT @Applebees Today we honor the victims and heroes of 9/11. We will never forget.

— Zack Andresen (@ZackAndRaisin) September 11, 2012

just sick RT @Applebees Come down to Applebee's from 9am to 11pm today and get an upgrade from any plane meal to an explosive fiesta dish!

— erik ashby hubner (@CoolDadSwag) September 11, 2012

Aw, come on guys! RT @applebees: 卐

— Brendan O'Hare (@brendohare) September 11, 2012

Several people fell for the prank:

@Applebees that hot fudge explosion sundae was really good you anti american bastards

— bobby light (@PalidoConPecas) September 11, 2012

I cant believe ur tweets, proof u will do anything 4 a buck smh @ u @applebees

— Danzins (@Mr_danzins) September 11, 2012

NEVER GOING TO @APPLEBEES AGAIN AFTER THOSE TWEETZ

And Applebee’s was forced to clarify that the retweets weren’t genuine:

@MegMcA No, not on our part….they created a fake RT with our name

— Applebee's (@Applebees) September 11, 2012

@RTTPresents Obviously not a real tweet from us

— Applebee's (@Applebees) September 11, 2012

@donni Obviously not from us

— Applebee's (@Applebees) September 11, 2012

Applebee’s also addressed the perpetrators of the prank without realizing it:

@80want Fake tweet going around…we did not create this

— Applebee's (@Applebees) September 11, 2012

@jakefogelnest Obviously not a real tweet from us

— Applebee's (@Applebees) September 11, 2012

“Brendan” thought it was hilarious:

but i just ordered and ate one at your Camden DE location. @Applebees

— Xanax Papa (@diarrhea) September 11, 2012

And he doubled down:

smh, 'bees. RT @applebees Would you like 50% off any of our low cal Simple & Fit items? Stop in today & say "Dune Coons" before you order :)

— Xanax Papa (@diarrhea) September 11, 2012

wow. RT @applebees We are indeed haunted. If u want to eat at a non-haunted restaurant for idiots, maybe tgi fagdays is more up your alley.

— Xanax Papa (@diarrhea) September 11, 2012

Brendan also extended his idiocy beyond Applebee’s:

U DISGUST ME. RT @tjmaxx All day on Sept 11th 2012, Save 20% on any purchase over $200 when you say code phrase: Go Home Sand Fleas :)

— Xanax Papa (@diarrhea) September 11, 2012

is that rly appropriate? RT @wendys 9/11 got you down? Surely a beefy, bacony Baconator will lift your spirits! #TheBaconatorDoes911Right

— Xanax Papa (@diarrhea) September 11, 2012

What did Applebee’s do to warrant such viciousness? Nothing but express gratitude to 9/11’s heroes and mourn those who lost their lives.

I think making up a fake "classless" Applebees 9/11 tweet is pretty fucking classless itself. Nor is it terribly funny.

— Jason Wojciechowski (@jlwoj) September 11, 2012

We agree. The disgusting people who saw fit to taunt companies like Applebee’s should be ashamed of themselves. Sadly, to hope that they possess the necessary intellectual capacity for such introspection is to hope for too much.

Update:

Stop the presses! Super-celebrity comedian Jake Fogelnest has put us in our place:

Thanks to @TwitchyTeam and @michellemalkin for the awesome article. The War on Women isn't a "false narrative." Those @Applebees tweets are!

— Jake Fogelnest (@jakefogelnest) September 11, 2012

He even taught Michelle Malkin a lesson:

RT @michellemalkin: Was having a nice lunch at @applebees until the GHOST of @chuckwoolery knocked over my southwestern entree. :( #haunted

— Jake Fogelnest (@jakefogelnest) September 11, 2012

Welp, guess we just got pwned.
