Adrian Grenier Slammed For 9/11 Post Mourning Dead Iraqis (PHOTO)
Adrian Grenier is getting slammed three days after he posted a controversial 9/11 tribute. See screengrab below.
On Friday, the “Entourage” star posted an artistic rendering of the Twin Towers with a message underneath reading, “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.” Grenier was immediately hit with a backlash, and ultimately deleted the post. He went on to instead post other images of the Towers and Ground Zero, writing, “In challenging moments and times of mourning, we must seek perspective to help us find peace within our choices forward. #911.”
But in the days since, the controversy has only grown, with hundreds of people filling Grenier’s Instagram posts with comments about his initial message and the decision to delete it. “You already showed your true colors, too late to try and correct what was already said. You are a typical Hollywood piece of work, go hug a tree and stay in the woods,” one person wrote to the star. A different person remarked, “What about all of the American Soldiers that have been killed in the war? No RIP for them? You also failed to mention that a lot of those Muslims were killed by other Muslims, people in their own country, terrorists that go to town centers and blow themselves up to kill as many as possible. You could have worded your comment better.”
Grenier, however, was not without any supporters. One person praised, “I thought you were very brave to post that and it is was very accurate @adriangrenier some people are just not ready to see we are all one. The worlds consciousness is not there yet but it will be. I applaud you.” Another wrote, “Disappointed you removed your post @adriangrenier. You simply stated the truth & anyone who has a problem with it lacks intelligence & compassion. As tragic as 9/11 May be, there are countless tragedies & atrocities happening to people around the world. All lives matter!!”
And many of the commenters are not just leaving messages for Grenier, but also debating each other about the merits of his actions. Tell us what YOU think below.
