For days, Texas Republican Ted Cruz and Superbad star Seth Rogen have been arguing on Twitter and early Sunday, the senator called his opponent a “Marxist with Tourette’s.”
After Cruz said that his first film in a movie theater was “Fantasia”, the actor replied: “Everyone who made that film would hate you.”
The Republican then said: “They’re all dead. So I think we’re good. And Walt Disney was a Republican. Even though you behave online like a Marxist with Tourette’s, your movies are typically funny. I’m sure you hate that I enjoy them.”
The pair then went on exchanging insults, attacking dignity, and calling each other names. What triggered the slur-filled hostilities remains unclear.
“Mr. Senator, as Rogen’s non-threatening buddy, perhaps I can translate “fascist” into more charming and civil terms,” friend Joseph Gordon-Levitt said after Cruz called Rogen a “fascist.”
“Your support of the former President’s attempts to baselessly overturn a democratic election is reminiscent of supporters of Hitler, Mussolini, and others.”
