The deaths of George Floyd and other African-American people in recent times have led to a huge uproar among the masses as well as celebrities. Comedian, anchor, and producer Seth Rogen joined the movement and voiced his opinion on Twitter.
He tweeted, "Always be more critical of the people upholding the racist system than the ones who are fighting against it." No sooner did he post it, several fans and followers started bashing him. "How disappointing. You have always been one of my favorites. You WERE one of my faves. I am thankful this shut down has shown millions of Americans the true colors of the celebs we have grown to love. It's all a sham. You are all despicable," one fan said.
"One bad cop does not mean the whole system is corrupt in large part law enforcement does an outstanding job considering the number of cases they deal with daily but when one bad cop shows his true colors everyone wants to say the whole system is at work against blacks! Not true," one tweeted and another posted, "Always be more critical of the people who bail arsonists and looters out of jail, rather than the ones who donate to people who's businesses were burned and looted."
Seeing all the fuss and furor over his tweet, he was quick to post a picture on Instagram for #BlackLivesMatter and wrote, "If this is a remotely controversial statement to you, feel free to unfollow me." When his fans slammed him, he didn't hesitate even for a second before telling them to "f**k off".
"People making this only about blacks. When it's about all races of color. Why do all these brutality videos only show the end? They don’t show wtf these people where doing to get in trouble in the first place," one said and another posted, "True, so I guess all us whites don't matter." To all of them, he had a similar response: "F**k off. You don't deserve my movies anymore. Stop watching my s**t."
No sooner did fans of the celebrity see a flurry of replies with "f**k off" and "f**k you" flowing on his post, they started sharing screenshots on Twitter and hailed him as king. "Seth Rogen is a whole mood, f**k y'all," one said and another wrote, "Seth Rogen is redefining the idea of 'f**k you money' and I am HERE for it."
"Seth Rogen is a legend. he straight up just tellin all the ignorant a** people to f**k off in his comments. @Sethrogen if you see this, you’re doing amazing sweetie," one posted and another said, "Can we appreciate how Seth Rogen is a living legend lmao." One even went on to say, "Seth Rogen for President," while one fan posted, "I'm a lesbian but I think I wanna marry Seth Rogen."
"Seth Rogen is a certified KING #BlackLivesMatter," one posted and another wrote, "I need to start trolling like Seth Rogen he is a gangsta." Another fan wrote, "If Seth Rogen can confront 8 million frat guys about race, you can confront your 4 'basically good' grandparents about race." Another wrote, "Let them speak up, Steve Carell and Seth Rogen Help Free the Black Lives Matter Demonstrators."
Sadly, many realized that Rogen's fan base was typically racist. But the comedian didn't care. Like one fan said, "Seth Rogen realizing his fan base is largely racist and telling every single one to f**k off."
