Seth Rogen had the best response to racists who didn't like his Black Lives Matter post

As a renewed movement against anti-Black racism, police brutality and systemic oppression takes over cities across North America, people are keeping an eye on how those with the biggest platforms are using their voices — and comedian and actor Seth Rogen is getting some attention for his latest social media posts.

The Vancouver-born star has made a couple of Instagram posts showing his support for the recent protests and for Black Lives Matter to his eight million followers, and had the funniest retorts to those who had a problem with him posting about the issue.

When users posted rude comments, Rogen didn't just ignore or delete them, but had some sassy responses that were general enough to apply to any troll, and also oddly effective.

After one user wrote "all lives matter, we all bleed red, facts!" on an image Rogen posted of a Black Lives Matter logo, the celebrity simply replied "fuck off. Facts!"

When another said "ALL LIVES MATTER!" Rogen responded with a deadpan "fuck you and both your parents."

To the Instagrammer who wrote "fuck you and your virtue signalling," Rogen said "I mean, fuck YOU and your father."

He continued with such responses as "get the fuck out with that shit," "shut the fuck up," "eat shit and fuck you," and more "fuck off"s, for good measure on the post, which he had captioned "If this is a remotely controversial statement to you, feel free to unfollow me."

One Twitter user collated some of his responses in a tweet that has since garnered nearly 2,000 retweets and more than 8,000 likes.

"Seth Rogen is a whole mood, fuck y'all," she wrote alongside some laughing emojis.

Meanwhile, Rogen's BLM post itself has nearly 400,000 likes and more than 52,000 comments — a lot for him to keep up with if he plans on clapping back at every single moron.

Other celebs who have been very involved with the recent protests this past week include singer Halsey, who has posted her anti-police sentiments alongside photos and videos on the ground at the rallies in LA (during which she provided first aid care to injured demonstrators), as well as performers Ariana Grande and Kehlani, and actors Timothée Chalamet and Nick Cannon.

Countless others have made George Floyd and BLM-related posts, while certain public figures and brands are being boycotted for their anti-protest statements.
