Seth Rogen Still Apologizing for American Sniper Comments

For some reason Seth Rogen is still being pressured into making even more apologies for his remarks about the multiple Oscar nominated film “American Sniper.”

The movie is based on the true story of an American Navy Seal who served as a sniper in Iraq.

Rogen tweeted about it, “American Sniper kind of reminds me of the movie that’s showing in the third act of Inglorious Basterds.” The reference is to a Nazi propaganda movie shown late in Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds, ” which glorifies and embellishes the deeds of a lone German soldier.

After clarifying his remarks and pointing out that he was in no way trying to compare the character in this movie with a Nazi, Rogen felt the need to say even more on the subject with a statement on twitter. The tweet was actually a screenshot of the following text:

“It appears I need to further clarify a Tweet I sent a few days ago: I said a sniper movie kind of reminded me of a scene in another movie that involved a sniper movie. I didn’t compare the two at all. I merely said that one kind of reminded me of the other because they both involved plots about the most lethal of snipers.”

Rogen also apologized to Chris Kyle, on whose story the movie is based, and veterans in general. “My grandfather was a veteran, ” he added. “My comment about the movie was not meant to have any political implications. Any political meaning was ascribed to my comment by news commentary.”

The statement came with the comment after it, “I truly hope this clears things up:”
