VIDEO: Whoopi Goldberg SLAMS Michael Moore, Seth Rogen Over American Sniper
Whoopi Goldberg blasted Michael Moore and Seth Rogen on Tuesday’s “The View,” taking them to task for their comments about American Sniper. As Gossip Cop previously reported, Moore called snipers “cowards” in an inflammatory tweet over the weekend, while Rogen seemed to compare the new Bradley Cooper movie to the fake Nazi propaganda film show toward the end of Inglourious Basterds (before saying he was not making a comparison). On Tuesday, Goldberg slammed them. Watch the video below.
“Everyone gets to have an opinion, because opinions are like buttholes, everyone’s got one,” said Goldberg. “So, you didn’t like the movie, that’s okay. We stood behind you, Seth, when you did your movie [the controversial The Interview]. And we said you had the right to make the movie you wanted to make. Give [American Sniper] the same respect. Because we stood behind him. Give them the same respect. And Michael Moore, you know better.”
Goldberg’s co-host Nicole Wallace chimed in, saying, “These guys died so that people like Michael Moore and Seth Rogen can say this stuff. So, I think next time they trash a movie about America’s heroes, they should add a little you thank-you at the end.” She later said of Rogen’s supposed comparison of American Sniper to Nazi propaganda, “It’s offensive, it’s reprehensible, and I think the military should boycott Seth Rogen’s crappy movie.”
Goldberg concluded by talking about her brother’s powerful response to the American Sniper. “The one thing he said to me … he said, ‘This movie kind of got me.’ Because a lot of people forget history. They forget what the soldiers went through.” Goldberg continued, “See, my brother came through the ’60s when our friends were going off to Vietnam, and so if you’ve never been to war, you can call people names. But until the bombs are exploding around you, and the people are dying around you, you need to be a little more sensitive, dudes. I get that you’re creative types, but so are they. So back up, or not.” Watch the video below, and tell us what you think.
