Atlanta filmed movie, Dirty Grandpa, alongside Academy Award winning actor Robert De Niro sparked controversy this MLK weekend. The Dirty Grandpa actor is catching some serious heat on Twitter and Instagram for posting what some feel was an insensitive message in celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. "I'm grateful for a couple things today: Martin Luther King Jr & 10 million followers on IG," the 28-year-old actor shared on Monday.
