"Entourage" Star's Controversial 9/11 Post Bashed On Twitter

Twitter users are disgusted with Adrian Grenier’s “classless” Instagram post on the 14th anniversary of 9/11.

On Friday, which marked the 14th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, actor Adrian Grenier, popular for his show Entourage, shared a post on social media that backfired massively.

On the same day, Grenier also shared other images on Instagram marking the 14th anniversary of the heartbreaking attacks, which said:  “In challenging moments and times of mourning, we must seek perspective to help us find peace within our choices forward. #911.”

Interestingly, this is not the first time Grenier, who is also an environmental activist, has made headlines for his political commentary. The New York Post has reported the actor criticized Donald Trump on his position on global warming in the previous month and called it “extremely destructive.”
