The Evening Standard quotes a woman named Jeanette Franklin as writing, "Where is this and why are they allowed to sell such disrespectfully disgusting goods."

The dress, which was recently spotted at a local market, is believed to have originated from India.

Jaspir Bhatti, the stall owner, reportedly said that he hadn't realized the pattern portrayed the 9/11 attack. After the offensive clothing was brought to Bhatti's attention, he is quoted by The Sun as saying, "I'm so horrified."

The garment was subsequently handed over to the reporter for disposal.
