Adrian Grenier is getting slammed on social media for a 9/11 tribute post that criticized the Iraq War and, many felt, diminished the terrorist attack's 3,000 Americans casualties.

The 39-year-old "Entourage" star posted a message on Instagram that stated: "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," according to E! Online. The post has since been deleted.

Us Weekly reported that many of Grenier's 539,000 followers lashed out against him in the comments section of Instagram and also on Twitter.









After the backlash, Grenier replaced the original post with a painting of firefighters hoisting up the American flag at Ground Zero, an image of a pause sign meant to look like the World Trade Center, and a photo of two couples kissing with the Twin Towers in the background.

Grenier played Vincent Chase on the hit HBO series "Entourage" that ran from 2004 to 2011. A movie version released over the summer made $32.3 million domestically at theaters, according to BoxOfficeMojo.com. The film generated another $12.2 million overseas.
