Seth Rogen destroyed Ted Cruz on Twitter yesterday & it was well-deserved

Ted Cruz is an absolute douchebag. His face and voice enrage me. He was a member of the Sedition Caucus, alongside Josh Hawley and more than a hundred Republican Congressmen, trying to ratf–k and rig the election for Donald Trump. Cruz and Hawley’s actions directly led to the Capitol siege, and the armed terrorists who violently stormed the Capitol even name-checked Cruz as someone who would agree with what they were doing. I guess Cruz thinks everybody will forget about that now. Cruz spent a lot of time on Twitter yesterday, pretending that he didn’t incite an armed insurrection. He spent a lot of time sneering at… Seth Rogen. Here’s how it played out:

In the early hours of Thursday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who recently helped incite a MAGA-zombie coup attempt, thereby endangering his fellow lawmakers and tearing at the fabric of American democracy, got into a Twitter war of words with the comedy actor and filmmaker Seth Rogen.

After Rogen tweeted at Cruz to “f–k off you fascist” (reasonable, all things considered), the fellow Canadian tweeted a screenshot of it accompanied by the pearl-clutching (and confusing) caption: “Charming, civil, educated response. @Sethrogen. 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.”

(For the record, Cruz, who is himself a multimillionaire graduate of Princeton and Harvard Law, and married to a managing director of Goldman Sachs, recently tried to foil the election on behalf of former President Donald Trump, a supposed billionaire real estate magnate and sometime reality-television host who inherited millions of dollars from his father and sh-ts on gold toilets.)

Well, after that, Rogen unloaded on Cruz, tweeting, “Haha get f–ked fascist. Go encourage a white supremacist insurrection again you f–king clown.”

He wasn’t finished. “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–ker for you,” wrote Rogen, adding, “Also I’m in four unions.”

Rogen, a self-made guy who did not attend college, was referring to the time Trump tweeted out a photo of Cruz’s wife, Heidi, implying that she was ugly—before threatening to “spill the beans” on her, whatever that means. Trump also accused Cruz’s father, Rafael, of participating in the JFK assassination, and branded the senator “Lyin’ Ted” in the 2016 GOP presidential primaries. Cruz has served as his humble servant anyway.

I’m really feeling Seth Rogen’s energy. I feel like that’s the energy we need to bring to the next four years: calling out fascist a–holes constantly and thoroughly. President Biden said a lot about unity and I’m of the belief that he *has* to say that sh-t at the beginning, so that later he can say “I tried, I came to you and tried to have unity but now that’s done.” We don’t have to hold ourselves to the same standards though. Let’s hold ourselves to Seth Rogen’s standards. F–k Your Fascism.

Also, this is what Ted Cruz wore to the inauguration:

This is the tweet which got the ball rolling – the replies on this are *chef’s kiss*

    Why is Ted Cruz around? Shouldn’t he be rotting in jail or something?

    • Esmom says:

      I was enraged to see both him and Josh Hawley at the inauguration, after all their efforts to delegitimize Biden’s election win and to get the rabid base fired up. Truly disgusting to see them acting as if everything’s fine.

      • Seraphina says:

        They are spineless and pathetic traitors. Of course they went to the inauguration, they see nothing wrong with their complicit behavior NOTHING. And that speaks volumes. But all of here on CB know this, it is the mindless twits that have no clue.

      • tealily says:

        Steve Scalise, same. What earthly business did those people have there?

  2. Laura Hansen says:

    Omg what a hero! Love Seth Rogan even more.

    • Monika says:

      Seth Rogen supports and protects James Franco!! So reconsider your love for someone, who supports and protects… sexual predators!! 😒

      • Midge says:

        @Monika The purity police strike again. This is the kind of shit that makes people hate liberals.

      • Ange says:

        Yeah it’s totes about purity when he’s accused of abuse in his school and sexually harassing and messaging under age girls (and the messages are public record).

        Downplaying legitimately bad behaviour and calling it ‘purity police’ is what make people hate conservatives.

  3. Rapunzel says:

    Ted Cruz is such a prick. As if Republicans are for unions and working class. Peddle that propaganda elsewhere, Zodiac killer.

    • WingKingdom says:

      Haven’t Republicans done everything possible to destroy unions? Remember Scott Walker? Ted Cruz is such a shameless liar. He has got to go- kick him out and have a special election!

  4. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    We can’t stop. Go get ‘em Seth.

  5. TheOriginalMia says:

    Standing O for Seth Rogan. Cruz is an jackass, a seditionist. A man lacking in moral and ethical standards. A man who’d suck up to the man calling his wife ugly and his dad a murderer. Seth was absolutely right. Cruz is a clown.

    • Monika says:

      Yeah, let’s give someone who supports and protects a Sexual Predator like James Franco an Standing O!! 😑😐

  6. Tiffany says:

    I believe Seth has citizenship now and is a voter.

    Also, is takes a special kind of sociopath to just get up everyday making it their life’s goal to be hated by any and everyone they encounter.

    But that is Insurrectionist Cruz for you.

  7. Qzie says:

    If it’s any consolation, one of my friends who was in attendance at the Inauguration yesterday said that Cruz and Hawley were completely shunned by everyone, including other Republicans. Everyone was mingling and putting their best foot forward, and truly congratulatory–and those two–no one spoke to and they sat alone in their chairs. Karma, she be a bitch. And Cruz, frankly, is despicable and not a patriot or defender of our democracy. I don’t know what his end game is, but it isn’t pretty.

    Go Seth Rogen, kept after him and those like him.

    • lucy2 says:

      Everyone there has always hated Ted Cruz, GOP included. Everyone. If he’s found to be involved and gets expelled and prosecuted, no one on any side will shed a tear for him.
      Glad Hawley is getting similar treatment. While it’s likely due to the fundraising screeching to a halt more so than morals, I’ll take it.

      • Ponchorella says:

        His whole family hates him too. There is plenty of video evidence from the 2016 primary events.

      • Ann says:

        The Republicans in the Senate wouldn’t even care if he got expelled, since the Texas Governor is a Republican and would choose his successor anyway. And it’s true, they all loath him. LOATH him.

    • WingKingdom says:

      Qzie, I actually do find that consoling. Thank you.

    • TheOriginalMia says:

      I’d always heard Cruz is disliked because of his Tea Party shenanigans when he was first elected. Even Mitch and Elaine Chao looked genuinely happy for Joe & Kamala. Didn’t even realize Hawley was there. Baby Hitler is a fraud. Hope they bounce him & Cruz for their part in the riot.

    • Esmom says:

      I do find it a consolation. May they be shunned for the rest of their miserable lives.

    • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

      Nancy Pelosi, just now on CNN, was saying that ALL members found to be involved in Jan. 6th Insurrection/Sedition WILL be found and prosecute. #GoNancy!

  8. psl says:

    I grew up with Craig Mazin, Cruz’s Princeton roommate freshman year. If you really want to laugh, follow him on Twitter. He goes OFF on Cruz. It is hilarious.

    • Maree says:

      Haha I was going to suggest people check out Craig Mazin’s comments – love his podcast, he has mentioned Cruz on there previously too.

  9. Nicole says:

    When was the last time Ted Cruz was in Pittsburgh? I went to grad school there. You have two very different economies there. He’s really aligning himself with unions? That’s effing rich. Perhaps you might be advocating for better regulations of fracking, and a stronger EPA so people can drink their water. Oh wait, being part of the Climate Agreement would to that. What a blue collar performative a$$hole.

    • chimes@midnight says:

      Has Ted Cruz ever even *been* to Pittsburgh?

      Why is a Texas senator bringing Pittsburgh into his nonsense?

      • R tarlton says:

        Trump said that exact comparison years ago. Cruz is such a moron that he doesn’t realize that it’s called the Paris agreement because it was signed in Paris. It’s not for Paris and it’s citizens.

      • Ann says:

        He was probably there during the 2016 primaries, to campaign, but that’s it I imagine. He’s one of my Senators and lord does it suck. Cornyn sucks too, but not as much as Cruz. Low bar.

      • Alarmjaguar says:

        As someone who lives in PA (though a recent transplant) Cruz and Hawley can keep my state’s name out of their mouths! They both have been doing this grandstanding about PA. Also, Pittsburgh is pretty liberal — besides being really diverse, it’s currrently an eds and meds economy (universities and hospitals). There’s also lots of tech – the Duolingo app creators live there and when Trump signed the immigrant ban they actually threatened to move shop to Toronto b/c so limiting immigration threatened their business.

      • Trillion says:

        AND he thinks the Paris agreement is about Parisians. Jeezus.

  10. Va Va Kaboom says:

    I’m sorry, but the bar is too low if that qualifies as “destroying” someone on Twitter.

    • Chaine says:

      Yes! This was just two guys with overinflated egos insulting each other weakly.

    • Deb says:

      Va Va Kaboom, how right you are. I read this article with puzzlement. It’s just a couple of guys throwing around weak ass dude bro insults at each other. I’ve heard better insults delivered with more wit on a playground. Using f*#k doesn’t up the game.

      • Catt Berlin-George says:

        I’m with @VaVa Kaboom that is NOT destroying someone on Twitter.
        Juvenile imbecilic retort by Rogan. Real weak. The other twitter comebacks were much wittier and more destroying’. Especially the ones explaining that the Geneva Convention wasn’t just for the people of Geneva.

    • Emm says:

      Yeah, there are a lot of better responses to his stupid tweet then Seth’s. I agree with Seth but he doesn’t go far enough in my opinion. Now that he doesn’t have Donny boy to cover for him he needs to be dragged out and destroyed because he’s only going to get worse over the next four years and continuing to rile up the mob that he got to storm the capital. Like you said, It’s all just some bros throwing around weak ass insults.

    • Lillyfromlilooet says:

      True, but I always appreciate it when public figure who is secure and well off and won’t be afraid at night just righteously curses the daylights out of another public figure.

  11. Sierra says:

    The pathetic fool doesn’t even know what the Paris agreement stands for.

    • Mel says:

      Right??? I was like…does he think the agreement is about…Paris?
      He’s either too fucking stupid or counting on his base to be ignorant.
      Both can be true.

      • AMA1977 says:

        100% pandering to dumba$$es who think that the word “Paris” in the agreement means it’s foreign and not ‘Murican. Rafael Jr. (who goes by “Ted” in an effort to anglicize his Cuban heritage) is most unfortunately one of my terrible senators (the more terrible of the two, not that that’s saying much) and he likes to cosplay being a regular guy, but he’s really Nosferatu in disguise. Loathsome, opportunistic, amoral, supercilious, dishonest, seditious…I can go on. He’s not stupid, but he is angling for the Stupid Vote.

  12. Rocķy says:

    What does that last tweet mean? Does he think the Paris climate agreement has something to do with the people of Paris other than it being signed there?

    • Esmom says:

      Yes, it apparently does. I saw the funniest tweet in response: “ted cruz: rejoining WHO only benefits the citizens of whoville”

  13. teehee says:

    Citizens of Paris?

    What’s that, like the citizens of Houston? Do they get their own passports?

  14. Stacy Dresden says:

    Ted Cruz is so pathetic and corrupt. Good on Seth Rogen!

  15. Marigold says:

    I’m from Texas. Cruz is deplorable.

    • BearcatLawyer says:

      I hate that this seditious clown represents our state. I hope he gets disbarred and removed from office ASAP.

  16. Giddy says:

    I’m a Texan and so embarrassed that Cruz is one of our Senators. Beto O’Rourke came so close to beating him and it was heartbreaking. I’ve never heard of anyone who likes him. However, years ago when he lived in Austin, his wife was picked up by the police as she sat weeping beside a very busy highway. They had evidently had a fight and she was disoriented and distraught. Being married to that weasel would make me distraught also. He’s a horrible man.

    • Ann says:

      I live in Houston. I’ve met both of them a couple of times, at a work event. I don’t know why she is even with him. She’s successful in her own right, she doesn’t need him or his money, whatever that might be. She’s pretty too. His daughters go to a very prestigious private school, where most of the parents and kids are Blue-leaning. I can’t imagine what it’s like for him.

      • MaryContrary says:

        Yes-she’s very successful-no idea what she sees in him. And to be honest, I would have left him after he started sucking up to Trump after he insulted her. That’s bizarre to me-at the minimum I would expect loyalty from my husband.

  17. Justjj says:

    I like Seth Rogan and I like him even more on Twitter! His voice is really attractive to me for some reason, ha

    • Ann says:

      I like Seth. It isn’t the wittiest or most devastating tweet but it’s Pure Seth, and it’s very satisfying in its own way.

  18. Ariel says:

    AOC had a pretty good quote tweet on this idiot as well.

  19. Sumodo1 says:

    Ted Cruz, The Seditionist and Insurrectionist. I wish Beto O’ Rourke had run for Senate. Maybe we’d have him in the Senate instead of Count Chocula. Bygones. Intelligence community has Cruz in their sights. Hawley too. Censure by the Senate is coming, maybe more. These Ivy League fekking posers KILL ME.

    • Ann says:

      I live in Texas and I get why Beto didn’t run. Cornyn is more popular than Cruz, and Beto likely would have lost again. Losing a second Senate race is worse than not winning a Dem primary with almost twenty people in it. I think he might have his eye on Governor, which would be great if he could win. He might be our best hope really. Also, by the time he dropped out of the primary there were a couple of strong women already basically in the Senate race on the Dem side and he didn’t want to step on their toes, which I can understand.

    • AMA1977 says:

      Beto did run against Cruz in 2018 and very narrowly lost. He chose not to run against Cornyn in the 2020 election because he thought that he could do more good organizing and assisting with voter turnout. Cornyn is just garden-variety Republican evil, and pretty middle-of-the-pack at that. Cruz is Deplorable and should be disbarred, expelled from the Senate, and tried for sedition.

  20. Emily says:

    Does Ted Cruz think the Paris accord is for the people of Paris? It’s named after the city it was ratified in. Does he really believe what he says or does he think his donors/voters are dumb?

    • AMA1977 says:

      He thinks, and is correct, that his voters are dumb. As evidenced by the fact that they elected and continued to elect his terrible ass.

  21. Veronica S. says:

    Pittsburghers weren’t too happy about that comment, either. Not only does the city reliably vote Democrat, they’re also very proud of being a city that cleaned itself up ecologically after the steel mill years. The area was a polluted disaster until a bunch of environmental reform was done, and now it’s a success story. Even when Trump pulled out of the Paris accord, the city made it clear it was going to push for green energy solutions. Its economy hasn’t relied on manufacturing in a very long time – it’s all academia, tech, and healthcare (which has created some problems with tax revenue because a lot are nonprofits, but LOL, Republicans sure don’t support those).

    What he’s probably referring to is the fracking ban Biden wants to put through for FEDERAL lands, which wouldn’t even effect most of Pennsylvania’s fracking industry because it’s done on private lands. Not to mention that whole industry has seen a downturn recently, so it’s not even as big as an employer as it once was. (It was never as big as Republicans pretended it was, either. Not even close – more like 30K jobs statewide.)

  22. Christine says:

    Cruz WANTS to be the next Trump. Same with Hawley. Who knows if they actually believe the bullshit they spew, but they want Trump’s supporters so bad that they’ll do/say anything.

  23. Truth hurt says:

    I hate people!

  24. J ferber says:

    Didn’t read all the comments yet, but you know Cruz and Hawley both voted against Biden’s new National Intelligence director Wednesday, who was confirmed. Hawley also held up the confirmation of Blinken, the Homeland Security nominee. These two assholes are seditious obstructionists who will both run for president in 2024. We need the Homeland Security director to prevent jerks like these two from inciting coups.

  25. Coco says:

    Ted Cruz is not just a fascist who didn’t care when Trump called his wife ugly, he also didn’t care that Trump accused Cruz’s father of planning the Kennedy assassination. Truly, a man for all seasons.

  26. Mimi says:

    I can’t stand hawley or Cruz they’re both spineless pieces of s$!t!!!!!!

  27. Mimi says:

    Also, love Seth Rogen. Good day everyone

  28. Katie says:

    Ted Cruz is my neighbor and every day that I don’t post his address on the internet or burn down his house is a day I’m proud of myself.

  29. Lisa says:

    I said to a coworker remember when trump accused Ted Cruz’s dad of killing JFK? And he looked at me as if I were crazy! Too much crazy, thank God it’s gone quiet for the moment!

  30. Hdjncd says:

    There is a crowdfund website accepting donations to put Cruz and Hawley on a huge billboard across from the Senate calling for both men to be held accountable for their crimes.
