Seth Rogen Goes Viral After Shrugging Off Los Angeles Car Burglaries: ‘It’s Called Living in a Big City

Comical actor Seth Rogen spurred a Twitter outburst after he shrugged off Los Angeles criminals breaking into cars, stating that it’s just a part of regular life in a big city. 

The viral outrage started when the “Knocked Up” star responded to a tweet from YouTube star Casey Neistat, who mentioned on Wednesday, “so our cars got robbed this morning because Los Angeles is a crime-riddled 3rd world shole of a city” and stated that he is thankful to the LA Police Department for taking into custody the criminal and getting all the belongings back that have been stolen.

Rogen responded “Dude I’ve lived here for over 20 years. You’re nuts haha,” adding “It’s lovely here. Don’t leave anything valuable in it. It’s called living in a big city.”

Neistat asked “I can still be mad tho right?”, stating further “feel so violated.”

To that Rogen responded “You can be mad but I guess I don’t personally view my car as an extension of myself and I’ve never really felt violated any of the 15 or so times my car was broken into,” adding further “Once a guy accidentally left a cool knife in my car so if it keeps happening you might get a little treat.”

Neistat told Rogen he “didn’t get any treats” and that the thief had taken decorations for his daughter’s 7th birthday party but then asked, “how did you get your car broken into 15 times?”

Rogen wrote “I lived in West Hollywood for 20 years and parked on the street,” adding “Also it sucks your s— was stolen but LA is not some shithole city. As far as big cities go it has a lot going for it.”

Seth Rogen Mocked by Many Critics

The wealthy actor was criticized widely for being so apathetic about car robberies in Tinseltown, and many even accused the actor of being “privileged.”

Washington Post contributing columnist Sonny Bunch responded “I don’t think ‘my car’s been broken into 15 times’ is doing the pro-Los Angeles work Seth seems to think it’s doing here.”

Tablet Magazine’s Noam Blum blasted Rogen “I, too, am unbothered when one of many cars gets broken into. I just ask my assistant to get it all cleaned up and repaired.

What’s the big deal?” adding “Viewing crime as some quaint reality of urban living akin to deer eating your vegetable garden is some bulls— Hollywood-goggles romanticization of something that has no redeeming value and doesn’t require some loss of humanity to prevent.”

Political commentator Cathy Young took to Twitter mentioning “You know, people talk about how this or that statement embodies ‘privilege,’ and 95% of the time it’s total bulls—, but this… yeah.” 

Daily Caller reporter Dylan Housman tweeted “Multi-millionaire celebrity explains to you why having your car broken into isn’t a big deal and you should just get over it.”

Entertainment journalist Katherine Brodsky responded “Why is it ok? It may not be a huge deal to someone with [tremendous] wealth, but it certainly is for someone who’s struggling. Might be the difference between making it & not. And regardless, the idea that it’s just ok… the cost of living…is …am unhealthy one.”

Substack writer Jim Treacher wrote, “Seth Rogen is only funny when he’s not trying to be.”

Rogen Response to All the Critics

Rogen seemed to react to the criticism, stating that he would instead confront his critics personally. 

Rogen tweeted “A lot of people come at me and talk s— on Twitter hoping I’ll engage with them publicly and give them attention, but instead I DM them and tell them to go f— themselves privately. It’s a lot more fun.”
