A channel event dedicated to the 15th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks occurred on the SiIvaGunner channel in 2016.

Summary

Due to poor timing, this event took place directly after the advent of the Green de la Bean meme and Bean Mourning Day, which gave rise to mass discontent among the channel's viewers. The discourteous nature of the event, compounded with the previous controversies, resulted in it having the worst backlash in the channel's history.

As a result of this backlash, the event was cancelled partway through. The channel published 16 rips simultaneously at around 9:30 AM PST, followed 30 minutes later by a mass deletion of most of the rips uploaded on that day, even those that were unrelated to the event, with the sole exception of "BLOODY STREAM (Instrumental) - JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle". The Flustered Fernando channel was then created to host the 9/11-related rips. After the removal, channel uploads were halted until the Kotori Minami's Birthday event on September 12.

Theme

The Bane avatar used after the removal of the 9/11 rips.

The avatar was made overly patriotic and had Osama bin Laden's beard edited onto SiIvaGunner, while the banner showed the lighthouse duplicated, standing in for the Twin Towers and about to be crashed into by Green de la Bean and The Jetsons. After the removal of the 9/11 rips, the channel banner and avatar were replaced with Baneposting-related images, referencing Bane's "Crashing this plane... with no survivors!" line.

Rips uploaded

Most of the rips on this day fit into one of three categories:

  • Rips directly referencing the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
  • Rips featuring The Jetsons theme as the joke.
  • Rips featuring jokes related to the United States, such as its national anthem or the American Dad! theme song.

The connection between The Jetsons and 9/11 is unknown, but it is known that the SiIvaGunner team decided to use The Jetsons only on 9/11 several months in advance,[1][2] and The Jetsons remains banned from being referenced in rips to this day. Two possible connections are the name of George Jetson referring to George Bush (the U.S. president during 9/11), or simply because of the word "jet".
