VIDEO: Alec Baldwin Blasts Dean Cain For “Threatening” Seth Rogen Over American Sniper Comments, Chris Kyle Controversy
Alec Baldwin is the latest celebrity to weigh in on the debate surrounding American Sniper, and he’s targeting Dean Cain with his remarks. As Gossip Cop has reported, everyone from Michael Moore to Blake Shelton to Whoopi Goldberg has commented on the film, which stars Bradley Cooper as the late Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, believed to be the most lethal sniper in history.
The film topped the box office this past weekend, breaking records in the process, but has divided Hollywood over its depiction of war, and Seth Rogen was criticized earlier this week after he seemingly comparing the movie to Nazi propaganda. That didn’t sit well with Cain, who tweeted in response, “@Sethrogen Seth…I like your films, but right now, I wanna kick your a**. Chris is an American Hero. Period. Go to war. Then we’ll talk.”
On Wednesday night, Baldwin came to Rogen’s defense. He tweeted, “Did @RealDeanCain threaten Seth Rogen? And isn’t that the same kind of troubled thinking that got Chris Kyle killed?” The actor continued, “Help me out here @RealDeanCain. What branch of the service were you in? And where did you serve?” Baldwin was referring to Kyle’s 2013 shooting death by a fellow veteran, who is now on trial for murder.
When a follower tweeted to Baldwin that “Kyle is a hero,” he responded, “I agree. But perhaps the film should have depicted what happened to Kyle in the end. Isn’t the way he died part of that story?” Baldwin’s point has been just one of many aspects to the ongoing American Sniper discussion. Cain has yet to respond to Baldwin’s tweets, but it’s worth noting that he knew Kyle personally (see photos above and below), and they were paired up together on the 2012 NBC reality show, “Stars Earn Stripes.”
Cain has frequently tweeted his support of the American Sniper, and appeared on “Access Hollywood” Wednesday to defend his perspective. “It’s like when someone insults a family member,” he said of his reaction to Rogen’s remarks. “I really was ticked off, so that was what came out of my mouth, very quickly on the keyboard.” Check out the video below, and tell us what you think.
