Attention, Seth Rogen and Michael Moore: you can’t just make comments about a film like American Sniper and expect there not to be any consequences. You insult the troops, and you incur the wrath of great patriots like Robert James Ritchie, AKA Kid Rock.
Rock’s outage was spurred by these two tweets:
My uncle killed by sniper in WW2. We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot u in the back. Snipers aren't heroes. And invaders r worse— Michael Moore (@MMFlint) January 18, 2015
American Sniper kind of reminds me of the movie that's showing in the third act of Inglorious Basterds.— Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) January 18, 2015
The man behind the most patriotic song of this decade, if not the century (“Born Free,” obviously) took exception to these comments. He took aim at the pair on his blog in this short, sweet post:
You feel that, Seth and Michael? That’s good old fashioned American fury flying at you. Better apologize, otherwise the American Badass himself might have to deliver the aforementioned “fist to the face.”
