Sep 14, 2015  •  Post A Comment

The star of HBO’s “Entourage” is in the middle of a firestorm over a comment he posted online on the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

The New York Daily News reports that Adrian Grenier wrote on his Instagram page: “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.”

Many social media users responded with outrage. The report quotes one person writing “Wow, I can only imagine how the 9/11 victims families feel. Today was not the day. Today is their day. Have some class.”

Another tweeted: “Terrific. Another has been crapweasel chooses 9/11 to crawl out from under a rock to post a tribute to his own boorishness.”

Some on social media defended Grenier. One user wrote: “Apparently a good chunk o’Twitter doesn’t understand that honoring history with truth IS patriotic.”

Grenier’s post, which can be seen below, was later deleted from his Instagram page.

  1. Lots of people — tens of thousands, maybe more — posted and tweeted this image on 9/11. Fourteen years later, I think it’s been time enough to memorialize ALL those who died as a result of 9/11 and its aftermath.
