It seems the Canadian-American actor Seth Rogen has lost all patience for Texas Senator Ted Cruz and is pulling no punches in an ongoing dispute on Twitter.
The feud started Wednesday afternoon with Cruz tweeting a criticism of President Biden’s move to have the United States rejoin the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change mitigation. In June 2017 Donald Trump took the U.S. out of the agreement to re-enter "on terms that are fair to the United States, its businesses, its workers, its people, its taxpayers.”
The Paris Agreement is within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, a worldwide initiative dealing with issues surrounding greenhouse-gas-emissions. Cruz may have missed that fact when he wrote the tweet that started the feud.
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. This agreement will do little to affect the climate and will harm the livelihoods of Americans.— Senator Ted Cruz (@SenTedCruz) January 20, 2021
“By rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement, President Biden indicates he’s more interested in the citizens of Paris than in the jobs of the citizens of Pittsburgh. This agreement will do little to affect the climate and will harm the livelihoods of Americans,” Cruz wrote.
To which Seth Rogen replied simply with “F*** off you fascist.”
Soon after Cruz fired back with a screenshot of the actors four word comeback calling it a ‘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. #JobsMatter pic.twitter.com/mwtMaBKiS2
“If you're a rich, angry Hollywood celebrity, today’s Dems are the party for you,” Cruz continued. “If you’re blue-collar, if you’re a union member, if you work in energy or manufacturing… not so much.”
Then Rogen replied to Cruz with:
“Haha get f***** fascist. Go encourage a white supremacist insurrection again you f****** clown.”
Rogen then retweeted the entire exchange with a caption referencing a tweet Trump made in 2016 comparing photos of his wife Melania to Cruz’s wife Heidi. The images, Heidi’s clearly chosen for its unflattering nature, was accompanied by the caption “No need to ‘spill the beans,’ the images are worth a thousand words.”
In the retweet caption Rogen wrote “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***** for you."
Not just Cruz has felt Rogen's Twitter wrath though.
Blair Brandt a Republican strategist and political advisor, retweeted Rogen’s “F*** off fascist” line with the caption “People with opposing views are now fascists.”
A comment Rogen must have taken exception to, replying with another reference to the Jan. 6 raids on the U.S. Capitol buildings.
This stupid attitude might have been more effective before the GOP inspired their followers to attempt to forcibly overturn an election they know they lost by lying.— Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) January 21, 2021
“This stupid attitude might have been more effective before the GOP inspired their followers to attempt to forcibly overturn an election they know they lost by lying,” Rogen fired back.
As of this writing Ted Cruz has yet to respond to Rogen’s comments.
