A spokesperson for Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz fired back at Seth Rogen in a Friday statement following the actor’s appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”
“We know Sen. Cruz is busy fighting to save the country from Biden’s disastrous policies,” a spokesperson for the Texas senator told Fox News. “It’s surprising to see that he’s living rent free in Seth Rogen’s head at the same time.”
Rogen, during his interview with Colbert, doubled down on previous comments referring to Cruz as a “fascist” and argued that “his words caused people to die.”
Colbert asked Rogen to elaborate on the ongoing “feud” with Cruz, but Rogen argued that the whole thing was, in his mind, pretty one-sided.
“If someone’s trying to murder someone with a baseball bat and someone is yelling at that person to stop, is that a feud? I don’t know if that’s a feud. I think feud implies two people hitting each other with baseball bats,” Rogen said. “I’m, like, Ted Cruz is a fascist. He denies the reality of the election. His words cause people to die, and I’m making jokes about it. Is that a feud? I don’t know. To me, it doesn’t seem like a feud. To me, seems like I’m pointing out the fact that he is a terrible man whose words have resulted in death.”
Rogen went on to argue that he didn’t believe it was fair to suggest that there was any equivalency between Republicans and Democrats, saying that it was a big problem in America to say that the right and the left were on equal footing.
