Great Job, Internet!: Rob Schneider blocks Seth Rogen on Twitter, igniting comedy’s latest high-profile feud
Despite its numerous faults, Twitter is an amazing tool for connection, allowing people to come together from disparate countries, societies, and even Hollywood comedy circles, in order to produce perfect moments like this one:
That’s actor and producer Seth Rogen, realizing that Rob Schneider has blocked him, apparently unprompted, on the micro-blogging service. The reasons behind the blockage are presumably political—Rogen’s a vocal liberal, while Schneider has awkwardly tried to cram himself into the box of a conservative comedian, catering to the kinds of conservative comedy fans who love bizarre, penis-pump-based narratives in films. But the real fun here has been watching Rogen’s comedian friends get in on the weirdness of the Neighbors 2 star waking up one day to realize he had somehow wandered onto Schneider’s fake-accented shit list.
