Seth Rogen Apologizes for All of His Infamous Homophobic Jokes
Updated: Jun 1, 2019
Comedian/Actor, Seth Rogen has been in every comedy movie that we all loved dearly. Pineapple Express, The Interview, Superbad, Neighbors, and his new upcoming movie, Longshot. He has made quite a name for himself as a comedian, he only catered to the lowest common denominator of straight guy humor. Throughout these past few years, Seth Rogen had a change of heart.
He did an interview with GQ magazine, stating how uncomfortable he has been with a lot of the humor in his earlier films now that everyone is woke. He states, "I've had people come up to me and be like, 'That made me feel like shit when I was in the movie theater and everyone is laughing about that'", he continues, "Like the 'How I know you're gay' thing from [from The 40-Year-Old Virgin], it's something people have been like, 'It's not fun to be in the theater when people are laughing at that, knowing what they're probably actually laughing at.' And I don't want anyone to have the experience watching our movies."
Rogen has been expressing his apologies for the jokes he's made in most of his earlier movies that were shooting towards the LGBTQ community. He even states, "I think if you actually care, then it's easy. We do not want people to feel bad when they're watching our movies."
What are your thoughts on the matter? Do you think Seth Rogen is being genuine with his apology or do you think this is all for promo for his upcoming movie, Longshot?
