Update, 1/19: Guys, Zac is very sorry. (Thank goodness.)
You live and you learn,
Troy Zac. You live and you learn.
Original story, 1/19: Should you ever find yourself to be a in position to thank 10 million followers on social media, please DO NOT give thanks on a day when your country is honoring one of its greats. Perhaps no one told this to Zac Efron when he surpassed that mark on Instagram yesterday, which also happened to be Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Naturally, folks are putting Zac in his place because MLK does not deserve this kind of tribute. Hopefully Zac will soon enroll in a course called Courtesy, Respect, and How to Tweet. Or, he can call any of the following people who shared nice things about MLK: Barack Obama, Eva Longoria, Kim Kardashian, and pretty much everyone else.
Zac's bad social media move comes just one day after High School Musical fans expressed rage over his absence from the film's 10-year reunion.
Billboard reports that Zac missed the pre-taped gathering because it conflicted with his promo schedule for Dirty Grandpa, (aka a film you will probably never see). The special will, however, include separate recorded comments from the man himself.
The Zac-less HSM reunion is set to air on the Disney Channel on Wednesday.
