Seth Rogen Blasts "Despicable" Ben Carson: "Totally F—ing Bonkers"
"I just read a lot of the stuff this guy was saying, and he seemed like someone that I just detested."
Seth Rogen clearly has no interest in casting a vote for GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson.
Rogen told the Daily Beast that he has been bothered by some of Carson's recent comments about guns, including Carson saying that the Holocaust might have been "greatly diminished" if German Jews had been armed. The retired neurosurgeon also stirred controversy by saying that the victims of the Oregon college shooting should have attacked the gunman, citing a robbery that he witnessed at a Popeyes restaurant in the 1980s.
"They implied that if their [right-wing] politics were applied to the Holocaust, that Jews wouldn't have been killed," Rogen said. "To me, it wasn't just about the Holocaust thing. It was about the [Oregon] shooting and how he said that people shouldn't just stand there and let themselves get shot, and that the correct thing to do if someone has a gun in your back is to point them at someone else and have them go rob that person?"
"I mean, I just read a lot of the stuff this guy was saying, and he seemed like someone that I just detested," Rogen continued. "At face value, what he's said is absolutely despicable. That guy is totally f—ing bonkers."
This is not the first time that Rogen, who is currently shooting Neighbors 2 with Zac Efron, has made his feelings toward Carson known. On Oct. 9, Rogen tweeted, "F— you, @RealBenCarson."
