9/11 themed wedding ceremony causes outrage.

THE new wave band Devo may have been decent at writing a catchy song back in the 80s, but the co-founder of the group, Jerry Casale, hit a sour note with his 9/11 themed wedding.

Twisted Devo bass player Jerry Casale outrageously held a repulsive 9/11-themed wedding — complete with cakes baked in the shape of the fallen twin towers and real box cutters as favors — on the anniversary of the terror attacks.An musician and his spouse have raised eyebrows by internet hosting a marriage with a theme, full with a Twin Towers cake bearing the couple’s faces. As shown in the images obtained by TMZ below, the couple chose a wedding cake resembling the fallen towers with their faces on the top of the cakes, and handed out personalised box cutters to guests as parting gifts.

But when the shocking photos of Casale celebrating his May-December marriage to 26-year-old Krista Napp surfaced Monday on the gossip site TMZ, he blamed a buddy who attended the revolting reception at a Santa Monica, Calif., restaurant. “One of my friends said, ‘I’ll take care of the cake.’ That was his contribution. TMZ spoke to guest at the couple’s reception who said others guests were not upset by the controversial theme, and vouched for the groom saying he has a “real heart as an artist, and is a super sweet guy.” According to the musician, they had chosen the date to get married out of necessity, as the Beverly Hills courthouse is only open on Fridays, and that was the last Friday available before their marriage application expired.

My brother turned to ashes as the South Tower fell on him and people died at the Pentagon because of box cutters.” “It seems like maybe they just needed to bring attention to themselves again as they didn’t exactly have staying power with my generation,” Miller said. “Whatever the reason though, it is no excuse.” The cake was, according to Casale, a response to comments he had previously made to a friend who questioned the choice of their wedding date, that he and Napp “are the twin towers of love”.

For Michele Miller, whose brother Mitchell Wallace, a state court officer who died while trying to save others on 9/11, Casale didn’t just cross the line — he obliterated it. “Shame on him, his wife, his guests, and even the restaurant for participating in such garbage,” she added. “A box cutter? Casale also told Billboard that the media attention the photo has received “ruined our wedding”, and that he was “surprised at the attention” it was receiving. Our family just celebrated the Jewish holiday last night for the 14th year without him at the table.” In addition to the pioneering postpunk rock band Devo, Casale headed an outfit called “Jihad Jerry & the Evildoers,” which released an album in 2005 called “Mine Is Not a Holy War.” Devo, which Casale co-founded in 1972 with his late brother Bob, and Mark and Bob Mothersbaugh, is famous for the members’ goofy, terraced hats and a quirky brand of humor on songs like “Whip It” and “Through Being Cool.” The band’s name is short for “de-evolution.” Casale said he didn’t make a fuss over the cake his friend supplied because, “You don’t want to ruin the whole night by overreacting.
