Adrian Gernier, best known as Vinnie on HBO’s series Entourage, is receiving backlash for an image he shared on 9/11.  Supposedly, he meant to post as a tribute and did not realize the vast number of people who would be enraged by its message.

The post has since been deleted, according to the Daily Mail, but the image read: “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.”

One thing being left out by major media sources is that Grenier did not create this image or write these words. This is an image that has been circulating on social media that he simply shared.

He also shared a link to the image on his twitter account and negative comments poured in, admonishing him for his post.

One such comment said ‘Today was not the day to post this. ‘Classless. You have no idea how families feel everyday on this day and everyday period.’

Another wrote: ‘That sure was a slap in the face at the 9/11 victims! But when your a second tier actor, it’s I need attention time.’

Another user called him out for showing his true character and utter ignorance by posting the meme.

After being deleted he was also hounded for that calling him a coward with no convictions.

This post wasn’t the only one he shared on the 14th anniversary of 9/11. He shared other images and tributes as well. One he also shared read: ‘In challenging moments and times of mourning, we must seek perspective to help us find peace within our choices forward. #911.’
