One of the latest celebrities who chastise Seth Rogen and Michael Moore is Kid Rock, commenting what each has made around the release of “American Sniper” movie, which is directed by Clint Eastwood.
“Fuck you Michael Moore, you’re a piece of shit and your uncle would be ashamed of you.” – Kid Rock wrote on his website. “Seth Rogen, your uncle probably molested you.
I hope both of you catch a fist to the face soon. God bless you Chris Kyle, Thank you for your service.” – He added. Five day ago, Michael Moore said that his uncle was killed in World War II by a sniper, adding: “We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot u in the back.
Snipers aren’t heroes.” He didn’t mention Eastwood’s movie by name, but a lot of people connected his comments to the movie. “American Sniper” is a biographical drama which focuses on the life of Chris Kyle, who was in Navy SEAL. Kyle was a war veteran and he was widely known as the deadliest sniper in the history of United States.
The director later shared his thoughts on movie to Facebook: “Awesome performance from Bradley Cooper. One of the best of the year. Great editing. Costumes, hair, makeup superb! Oh … and too bad Clint gets Vietnam and Iraq confused in his storytelling. And that he has his characters calling Iraqis “savages” throughout the film.
But there is also anti-war sentiment expressed in the movie. And there’s a touching ending as the main character is remembered after being gunned down by a fellow American vet with PTSD who was given a gun at a gun range back home in Texas — and then used it to kill the man who called himself the ‘America [sic] Sniper’.Also, best movie trailer and TV ads of the year.”
On Sunday, Seth Rogen tweeted that “American Sniper” reminded him of 2009’s “Inglorious Basterds,” a fictitious Nazi propaganda film. However, later Rogen said that he liked Clint’s movie and that critics had blown his comments out of proportion.
Other conservative pundits and celebrities have spoken out in defense of “American Sniper” and Chris Kyle, who was killed in 2013 at a shooting range.
A friend of Kyle, Sarah Palin, wrote that “Hollywood leftists” are not “fit to shine Chris Kyle’s combat boots.” On Monday, Craig Morgen, who is country star, wrote a lengthy post on Facebook directed to Seth Rogen, calling his tweets insensitive and inaccurate. “I’m sick and tired of people like you running your mouth when you have no idea what it takes for this country to maintain our freedoms.
If you and anyone like you don’t like it, leave.” – Craig wrote. The Hollywood Reporter claims that “American Sniper” is set to remain at the top of the box office during this weekend. In North America its current box office tally sits at $120 million.
