Social media lashed out to ?Entourage? actor Adrian Grenier after sharing a controversial graphic on his Instagram account. The 39-year-old posted an image of the Twin Towers with a statement underneath saying, ?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.?

The posted image which was also linked to his Twitter account resulted in some social media users being offended and criticizing Adrian Grenier. The 539,000 followers of Adrian Grenier were apparently outraged with what he shared and after the immense adverse responses from social media users, the actor deleted the post and followed it with other 9/11 images, according to Us Weekly.

He followed the controversial graphic with a set of images which shows ?a painting of firefighters hoisting up the American flag at Ground Zero,? a ?pause sign? that ?meant to look like the World Trade Center,? and a photo of a couple kissing with a background of the towers, shared by Us Weekly.

Several messages criticizing Adrian Grenier were also posted online after the actor posted the images saying how fans were disappointed with the actor. One account saying how ?he?s just another clich?d pampered celeb, insulting the nation that granted him fame and wealth from his ivory tower.?

Another user stated, ?Today was not the day to post this. Classless. You have no idea how families feel everyday on this day and everyday??

According to Fox News, ?Grenier is an outspoken environmentalist and has been critical of Donald Trump and his stance on global warming.? The actor is known for his role as Vinnie Chase in the ?Entourage? TV show and movie that just came out earlier this year. There is still no response from Adrian Grenier as for the controversy but since then, his followers has declined to 359,000 as of today.
