Seth Rogen took a break from showing off his latest ceramic creations on Twitter to let Ted Cruz know he thinks he is a “fascist” who “always deserves ridicule” – and Cruz spent a lot of time striking back

The multi-day back and forth between the Texas senator and the actor began when Cruz tweeted a screenshot of Rogen’s mundane response to his tweet about President Biden choosing “Paris over Pittsburgh” for “Charming, bourgeois, educated response @Sethrogen.” “wrote the senator,” If you’re a rich, mad Hollywood celebrity, today’s Dems are the party for you. If you’re a worker, if you’re a union member, if you’re in the energy or manufacturing industries, then don’t #JobsMatter as much ”

He then tweeted a video from a Pittsburgh official saying Cruz was a climate change and COVID-19 denier who encouraged the uprisings by questioning the integrity of the elections and having no credibility He wrote, “Hey @tedcruz check this out and then get ready for yourself, you clown (This is a lot more fun now as I know he’s sure to see my tweets) ”

His friend and co-star Joseph Gordon-Levitt also stepped in, tweeted Cruz again, writing, “Mr. Senator, as a non-threatening buddy of @sethrogen, I can perhaps translate “fascist” into more charming and bourgeois terms. Your support for the attempts of the former president to unduly overthrow a democratic election, reminds of supporters of Hitler, Mussolini and others ”

The actor replied again, writing, “As someone who has Tourette in his family (and has a very mild case of his own), I’m once again very excited to tell you to fuck yourself (Also, VERY few Cases of Tourette manifest in uncontrollable cursing Most cases, like mine, manifest in twitches) “Then he added in a follow-up tweet,” You’re a fucking fascist too, shut up and walk away “and” Anyway of all the jokes, @tedcruz is a fascist piece of shit ”

Cruz went on and called Rogen an idiot Rogen went on to call Cruz a “stupid fuck” whose “lies killed people. He also tweeted a number of other Twitter users calling the Senator and wrote things like,” You respond better to Seth Rogen on Twitter than your constituents in Texas “and” @tedcruz is desperate to have a fight with @Sethrogen”Everyone is talking about it, and not about, that he maliciously tried to overthrow a fair election to cynically seize Trump’s base and run for president in 2024”

On Sunday, the hashtag # SethRoganLovesTedCruz – with Rogen’s misspelled name – started to trend as Cruz’s conservative colleagues gathered in his defense, Rogen made sure it was made clear, “This is not a Twitter feud @ tedcruz tried to overthrow our government. He inspired a deadly mob to storm the Capitol And I think that deserves ridicule. So fuck him ”
