Adrian Grenier Slammed for Controversial 9/11 Instagram Post
Adrian Grenier posted and then deleted his 9/11 tribute.
The Entourage star came under fire after acknowledging the terrorist attack’s 14-year anniversary on Friday (Sept. 11, 2015). The actor posted a controversial Instagram photo of the Twin Towers alongside what people are saying is super offensive. He reportedly wrote:
R.I.P. the 2,996 Americans who died in 9/11. R.I.P. the 1,455,590 innocent Iraqis who died during the U.S. invasion for something they didn’t do.
That obviously didn’t go over very well with with his 539k followers, who view the anniversary of September 11th as a day to honor the victims who died at the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, and onboard United Flight 93.
“Don’t think I’ll be watching another movie @adriangrenier is in after he made this posting on Instagram & deleted it,” one person wrote, with another adding, “I have never heard of you until today, and most likely never will again. Free speech isn’t always free.”
After a massive backlash, the 39-year-old deleted the post and posted several other photos to his account instead. However, the negative comments have not stopped.
