UPDATE 6:45 p.m.: Jerry Casale says don’t blame him for the 9/11 cake and box cutter gifts. It was his friend! He and his wife are the “Twin Towers of love,” though, and everyone ate the cake. Watch his explanation below, via TMZ:
Well this is just… something.
Devo co-founder Jerry Casale got married recently, and apparently celebrated with a September 11-themed party. Casale and new wife Krista Napp slapped their faces atop the Twin Towers, and even gave out box cutters to guests engraved with their names, according to reports.
The co-founder of Devo and his bride hung their faces off a Twin Towers cake to celebrate their marriage with the most bizarre, and possibly offensive, wedding reception … EVER.
Jerry Casale — Devo’s singer and bassist — married Krista Napp on Friday at Michael’s Restaurant in Santa Monica. Of course, Friday marked the 14th anniversary of the September 11th attacks … a fact the bride and groom made sure their guests would never forget.
Fact 1: Their cake was the World Trade Center, with their images on top of each tower.
Fact 2: Guests got real box cutters as party favors.
Fact 3: Their table setting cards had an image of a “Gerald & Krista” engraved box cutter.
A guest tells TMZ that Casale has “real heart as an artist, and is a super sweet guy,” and no one was offended at the party because they know he has a dark sense of humor.
This past Friday was the 14th anniversary of the attacks on New York City that killed roughly 3,000 people. Check out the cake, via TMZ:
