Like an international quagmire with no clear signs of an exit strategy, the controversy surrounding American Sniper continues. Previously, Seth Rogen tweeted that the Clint Eastwood film reminded him of the fake propaganda film glorifying a Nazi sniper in Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds. While he was quick to clarify that he wasn’t equating U.S. Troops with Nazis or anything that inciting, this wasn’t reasonable enough for the writer of “Bawitdaba.”
Kid Rock took to his website to praise the film’s real-life soldier, Chris Kyle, while also calling out Rogen and Michael Moore (who had qualms of his own with the film). Writing with the same fevered inspiration that led to “American Bad Ass,” Rock said:
Fuck you Michael Moore, you’re a piece of shit and your uncle would be ashamed of you. 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.
Rogen and his uncle have yet to respond to these allegations, and there’s been no news as to whether any of them have, in fact, caught a fist to the face recently. But now that the other, other, other madman of Motor City (following Ted Nugent and Eminem) has weighed in, surely we as a country can move on from this debacle and refocus the discussion back to the film’s incredibly weird choice to use a rubber baby in lieu of a human one.
