Seth Rogen doesn’t think he’s in a Twitter feud with Ted Cruz

0 534

Seth Rogen and Ted Cruz have had a massive fight on Twitter, with both of them coming on to each other back and forth. And it all started when Senator Cruz criticized President Joe Biden for rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement. Since then, the two have thrown harsh words at each other. Here’s what happened and why Seth Rogen believes that it isn’t a feud.

After news came in that President Biden signed an executive order, after which the United States was going to rejoin the Paris Agreement, Cruz tweeted:

By rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement, President Biden indicates he’s more interested in the views of the citizens of Paris than in the jobs of the citizens of Pittsburgh.

For those who don’t know, the Paris Agreement is a Climate Change initiative by which various countries agree to bring Greenhouse Gas emissions to a minimum and lower the rise in temperature to battle climate change. It has nothing to do whatsoever with what President Biden thinks about the views of the people of Paris. And Seth Rogen did not take Cruz’s comments lightly.

Ted Cruz was already being criticized by many, but Rogen did not come at him lightly and replied Sen. Cruz with “F*ck off you fascist”.

After this, Rogen and Cruz engaged in quite a long back-and-forth engagement, with Cruz saying:

Charming, civil, educated response. ⁦If you’re a rich, angry Hollywood celebrity, today’s Dems are the party for you. If you’re blue-collar, if you’re a union member, if you work in energy or manufacturing…not so much.

But, Seth Rogen was not holding back at all. Rogen replied:

If you’re a white supremacist fascist who doesn’t find it offensive when someone calls your wife ugly, Ted Cruz is the exact motherf**ker for you.

Rogen was referring to 2016 when Donald Trump, whom Cruz endorsed later on, insulted Cruz’s wife in the Republican primaries.

The two kept on engaging and arguing

The next day, Seth Rogen again tagged Sen. Ted Cruz in a video where an Allegheny County executive rightfully calls Cruz a “climate denier” and “COVID denier”. 

And Seth Rogen showed no signs of giving up on Ted Cruz. He wanted Cruz to know loud and clear what he thought about him and replied to one of Cruz’s tweets about the movie Fantasia. Rogen told him that everyone who made the film would hate him.

In response, Sen. Cruz remarked that Walt Disney was a Republican and called Rogen a “Marxist with Tourette’s,” further saying:

Even though you behave online like a Marxist with Tourette’s (screaming “F U! F U!” is really, really clever), your movies are typically pretty funny. I’m sure you hate that I enjoy them.

In return, Rogen used Tourette syndrome as a jab and replied:

As someone who has Tourette’s in their family (and also has a very mild case himself), I once again take great pleasure in telling you to go f**k yourself.

And just in case anyone forgot, Rogen emphasized again in the replies that Ted Cruz is a “f**king fascist”. Afterward, he again emphasized it in another tweet how Cruz is a “fascist piece of sh*t”:

Ted Cruz, in response, said:

It’s your party that believes in government power: to shut your business, to oppress your faith, and to censor your speech.

And the final sucker punch from Seth Rogen was highlighting that Cruz “literally inspired a deadly insurrection,” referring to the US Capitol riots, which left five people dead:

Rogen emphasizes that this wasn’t a Twitter “feud”

Despite the back-and-forth tweets, Rogen said that this wasn’t a “feud”. Instead, all Rogen did was ridicule someone who “tried to overthrow our government” and “inspired a deadly mob to storm the Capitol”. He further said that Cruz had “blood on his hands”.

Furthermore, Democratic Senators have requested an investigation as to if Ted Cruz had any kind of involvement in the US Capitol riots. Their statement read:

The question the Senate must answer is not whether Senators Hawley and Cruz had the right to the object to the electors, but whether the senators failed to ‘put loyalty to the highest moral principles and to country above loyalty to persons, party, or Government department’ or engaged in ‘improper conduct reflecting on the Senate’ in connection with the violence on January 6.

Ted Cruz hasn’t responded to these latest tweets by Seth Rogen, but they do demonstrate the severity of the events that transpired on January 6th. That coup attempt will go down as a stain on American Democracy. And if those in power do not effectively address it, it may very well happen again. Therefore, Seth Rogen’s words cannot be passed away as mere screams from the left. They address a much deeper issue.
