Seth Rogen continues to slide into Donald Trump Jr.’s DMs—but this time it’s about sexual assault
With great power on Twitter comes great responsibility, and no one understands that more than Seth Rogen.
The comedian has taken it upon himself to bombard Donald Trump Jr. with direct messages ever since he discovered the president’s son followed him on the platform. Rogen has previously requested Trump Jr. look into Michael Flynn’s ties to Russia and even tried to convince the president to resign. But on Thursday morning, in response to the Harvey Weinstein scandal that has unfolded this week, Rogen decided to bring up Trump’s own sexual assault allegations to Trump Jr.
“Hey dude! See you’re going pretty hard at us ‘Hollywood’ types. I agree Harvey is a piece of shit and people should speak against him,” Rogen said, referencing Trump Jr.’s latest tweets. “But…are you aware your father has been accused of sexual harassment by several women and even admitted to sexual assault on tape?”
“Maybe you should denounce that?,” Rogen continued. “Just a thought man! Have a good one!,” he said. After that he wished the president’s eldest son fun “shooting innocent animals,” referring to his infamous safari expeditions.
As expected, people were here for Rogen’s public shaming.
The blue check next to Rogen’s sent messages suggests that yes, Trump Jr. has read the messages. While he didn’t respond to the actor last time, Trump Jr. recently did get in a public spat with Jimmy Kimmel about Weinstein, which didn’t end so well, so anything is truly possible.
