Radio Host Getting Crushed For 9/11-Themed Tweet About Cavs' Parade

A Fox Sports Radio host is currently under fire for making a 9/11 comparison to the scene at the Cleveland Cavaliers' NBA championship parade. 

Ben Maller, the host of the Ben Maller Show, tweeted that an image that went viral of fans climbing a parking garage gave him a "creepy 9/11 feel."

Here's the original photo, tweeted by ESPN.com's Dave McMenamin.

Here's Maller's tweet.

Making a comparison to the tragic scene of Sept. 11 to the scene of a championship parade while making a joke about LeBron James' hairline is just in horrible taste.Most people seem to agree with that.
