Seth Rogen Hits Back at Critics Who Derided Him for Controversial ‘American Sniper’ Tweet

Actor Seth Rogen hit back at critics Monday afternoon, responding to controversy ignited over a tweet he published Sunday saying “American Sniper” reminded him of a Nazi propaganda film.

“I just said something ‘kinda reminded’ me of something else,” Rogen said in a series of tweets. “I actually liked American Sniper. It just reminded me of the Tarantino scene.”

The Hollywood actor, who co-wrote and stared in “The Interview,” was referring to a Nazi propaganda movie that played at the conclusion of “Inglorious Bastards.”

On Sunday, Rogen said Clint Eastwood’s bio-epic “kind of reminds” him of that film. Here’s what he tweeted earlier:

Yet, on Monday the actor maintained that he “wasn’t comparing the two.”

“Big difference between comparing and reminding. Apples remind me of oranges. Can’t compare them, though,” Rogen said.
