Sick to my stomach watching #Mecca right now. Tragic beyond belief. Please remember them all in your prayers today.

While Americans reflected on the events of 9/11 happening at home, one Twitter account posted an unsavory tweet.

Americans reflect on 9/11 some tweeters decided to reflect on the event as an act of karma.
Interesting that a deadly accident happens at the Grand Mosque in #Mecca on the anniversary of 9/11. What is it that they say about karma?

This tweet and many similar ones have sparked outrage.
People calling the #Mecca tragedy "karma," you are disgusting and I am ashamed to be of the same species as you.

If you've laughed at or shared a joke about the #Mecca tragedy, you forfeit your right to get butthurt over 9/11 jokes. Simple as that.
