Every year on September 11, people all over the United States pause to remember the victims of the 9/11 attacks that took place in 2001.

It was an unforgettable and hofficic incident. So it makes sense that the President and First Lady will also take the time to pay tribute on this day.

President Donald Trump posted a tribute tweet for the 9/11 anniversary and it gained a lot of attention, but not for the reasons you might expect.

In the picture, the back view of Donald and Melania were captured as they stood on some type of balcony overlooking an unfamiliar landscape. FLOTUS wore a long black coat which had some white thread trimmings on it.

The words "we will never forget" were written underneath an American flag with the date of the tragic incident at the bottom.

Upon closer inspection, one can make out the white trim tracings on the back of Melania's coat. There's also a button tab closed at the bottom area.

Evidently, the way the threadings were arranged reminded some Twitter users of an image of a plane flying into a tower.

Several people tweeted their observations and in the process, slammed Melania for wearing something that could have such a strong and insensitive undertone.

Of course, it's all a matter of perspective. Does the image on the outfit give you the same vibes?
