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.”

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.
He then took a jab at the media.
