Belgian singer "cracked beers" as planes hit

Daan Stuyven, singer with Belgian acts Daan and Dead Man Ray, better not be planning any trips to the US anytime soon, following an interview he apparently gave to De Standard newspaper yesterday:

"When the first plane hit the WTC tower I thought ' finally!' and got some beer (...) the Americans got what they deserved."

Never a good time to suggest the deaths of thousands of people in a horrible way are "deserved"; to suggest so on the fifth anniversary of the terrorist attacks suggests a tiresome desire to shock outweighing a person's better judgement.
