9/11 Mastermind, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, has appeared as a Poster star for an online campaign for a variety of hair removal treatments – but the Turkish company behind the ads says the terrorist’s image was used by accident.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was allegedly a member of Osama bin Ladin’s al-Qaeda organization; He was captured in hiding in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, by a combined force of members of the CIA and the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency of Pakistan, and transferred to U.S. CIA custody in 2003.

According to RT, The Turkish Company Epila says that this was not a viral marketing stunt.

“We didn’t know that he was a terrorist. This image is in popular use in Turkish memes on the Internet. The guy is quite hairy, so we thought his body was a good fit for our ad,” Mehmet Can Yıldız, a company representative, told Turkey’s Hurriyet newspaper.

“We didn’t want to imply anything political. We didn’t know that it could become an international story. I repeat: We featured him for his hair, not terrorism.”
