High School Cheer Squad Uses Sounds Of 9/11 For Routine, Starts Controversy

A cheer squad from Texas has the internet buzzing with a video of a routine they performed to honor the anniversary of 9/11.

The cheerleaders started their routine with a dance to “God Bless the U.S.A.” From there, they cheered and tumbled to audio of reports from the day the towers fell, including some of the comments then-President George W. Bush made after the attacks.

They ended the routine by holding up an American flag and spelling out “U.S.A.”


One of the cheerleaders wrote on Twitter that the squad did the routine as an “appreciation and acknowledgement” of the victims. Some people said the performance was “one of the greatest things ever” while others said it was “horrible” and “distasteful.”
