Seth Rogen: Self-Absorbed, Petulant, Unsophisticated Child

Seth Rogen proved actors should wade in the shallow waters of Hollywood, because his antics in Washington D.C. this week were embarrassing.

Rogen's stated purpose was certainly noble enough -- speaking in support of increased Alzheimer's funding. His tactics, however, were bush league.

Rogen was incensed only 2 Senators showed up to hear him speak. He railed on the sea of empty chairs, saying "All those empty seats are senators who are not prioritizing Alzeimer's."

Rogen -- who laced his speech with schtick, including his devotion to "House of Cards," perhaps should take a civic's lesson -- it's nothing personal, Seth, lots of subcommittees have empty chairs. It's not always about you.

Fact is ... if Senators are multi-tasking and have to choose which meetings to attend, Seth and his anecdotes, may not be at the top of the heap. Not that his anecdotes aren't moving -- they are, but personal tales aren't necessarily the best way to drive the government.

In harsher terms, Congress should not pass legislation so Senators can thump their chests to star-struck voters because some big celebrity told a tear-jerking story. 

It's good Seth got in some selfies at the White House, and even acknowledged he's self-absorbed, but really, enough already.

Why is it than whenever I hear an unhinged, irrational rant on the gossip sites, the byline is always Sarah Taylor? Sarah, you are absolutely useless. You can't write. You can't think your way out of a paper bag

I watched my brilliant, successful,charming father wither away because of Alzheimer's. If Seth Rogen wants to do naked handstands to draw attention to himself while he's talking about Alzheimer's I applaud him. Everyone will be affected by Alzheimer's in one way or another. Seth Rogen did a good thing whether a gossip blog think so or not.

yEAH fUCK u sARAH, thats my name.

GO Seth!
Those Senators are not real people, nor do they care.
How is Seth Rogen a "Self-Absorbed, Petulant, and an Unsophisticated Child" by trying to raise self awareness for Alzheimers?
Really?
Really??
REALLY???

Bad article.

Really? He's heated because he feels as though a serious disease is being neglected. Alzheimer's is a horrible disease. I've never had a family member with it, but I can still recognize how horrific it must be for both the sufferer and the loved ones. You don't even need to be affected personally with this disease - to realize how horrific it is and how more attention needs to be paid to it. This rant is really disgusting, even for this piece of s--t website.

I check out the site from time to time, some interesting info but one thing I've come to learn about fishwrapper. It has to be one of the most negative sites that seems to enjoy insulting people.

Do you guys\gals not eat your wheaties in the morning?

I lived in Washington DC for more than 20 years. The senators DO NOT care about anything but themselves and getting re-elected.
Seth Rogen is RIGHT!!!

What's the problem here? He's absolutely right. If they're not there, they don't really care. At least he was here. Trying to better a country he wasn't even born in. And the 'schtick' parts were fine. It gets it in the news. I applaud Seth.

I will never look at your website again and will do my best to get as many people as possible to ignore your website as well. Horrible article.

I'm done with Fishwrapper. And it's because of the increasing irrational and useless article by Sarah Taylor. Congrats Fishwrapper.. one writer has turned off your ad revenue generating link clickers... Why has idiot Sarah not bothered to get more angry about the fact that they would even bother wasting time and money and resources to have a hearing if they weren't going to attend? Is Sarah some high schooler who fancies herself a writer yet doesn't yet have the intelligence to look at things realistically and logically? Please - tell us how more about how torqued you are about a citizen appearing before a government committee trying to get funds and attention for a disease that affects almost every single family across the nation... stupid cheesecunt dunce.

I wonder if calling someone a self absorbed, petulant, unsophisticated child is considered being "mean"...you know, since the "author" once complained about people being mean when they corrected her on her use of the word prolific.

Sarah, you need to take a long hard look in the mirror and see how disgusting a soul you have. If you even have a soul. I don't care what your (very obvious) views of Seth Rogen are, the fact is that he is trying to bring attention to Alzheimer's, which NEEDS attention, and you're going to sit there with your pathetic rants? That just proves YOU are the only unsophisticated child. He's out there doing something for a meaningful cause. And you are...writing for a garbage gossip site. Wonder who won THAT war?

More proof that Sarah Taylor doesn't live in reality with the rest of us.

You forgot to mention the reason he was pissed. A bunch of senators showed up to take pics with him but never stayed to hear what he had to say. All they wanted was the photo op and didn't give a shit about what he had to say. I think it shows what kind of useless pricks they really are
