Seth Rogen caught a lot of shit Sunday after he tweeted a ridiculous comparison of the Chris Kyle autobiography film “American Sniper” with the Nazi propaganda film shown during Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglorious Basterds.” While Tarantino’s World War II film is about a fake Nazi sniper who kills some 200 of his enemies, “American Sniper” is a fact-based film on Navy SEAL Chris Kyle and how he saved countless people during his life.
But it was a nice try, Rogen.
American Sniper kind of reminds me of the movie that's showing in the third act of Inglorious Basterds.

However, the Internet was not about to let Rogen get away with his comparison, and we’ve rounded up some of the best responses.
.@Sethrogen An honest portrayal of an American hero is just like a pro-Nazi propaganda film? Maybe you shouldn't get high before you Tweet?

@Sethrogen Seth…I like your films, but right now, I wanna kick your ass. Chris is an American Hero. Period. Go to war. Then we'll talk.

After your disrespectful words about Chris Kyle, I will never watch another one of your movies @Sethrogen

.@Sethrogen likened Chris Kyle/American Snipper to a Nazi. Right. Seth, I think you have smoked way too much pot you looney tune.

I bet if North Korea came knocking at @Sethrogen's door over his fake propaganda assassination film, he'd want Chris Kyle protecting him.
