Seth Rogen responded to be calling a “k*ke” by an anti-semitic Twitter user who then proceeded to go on an anti-Israel rant. Rogen is an outspoken supporter of the democratic Middle Eastern nation, which is presumably what prompted the man’s tirade.

Kevin Knobloch, who uses the Twitter handle @KevinCole17, tweeted the following to Rogen on Friday, “Arrogant k*ke…can’t wait to kick you out:) At least you’ll get a new holiday…if you make it…” The Jewish actor took the high road and decided not to begin a back-and-forth argument with the hateful man. Rogen instead retweeted Knobloch’s remark, along with the comment, “This guy seems nice!”

In August 2014, Rogen was among a group of nearly 200 celebrities and Hollywood notables who signed a statement criticizing the actions of the terrorist organization Hamas for launching rockets on Israeli cities and civilians unprovoked. Rogen’s pro-Israeli activism seemingly sparked Knobloch’s tirade, as the man also tweeted an article to the actor about the number of Palestinians killed during last year’s conflict in Gaza.

Also tied into Knobloch’s attack of Rogen was Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis, who was arrested on Thursday for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Rogen had earlier retweeted a comment from Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, which said, “I’m headed to Kentucky on Tuesday to stand with #KimDavis. We must end the criminalization of Christianity!” In response, Rogen wrote, “@GovMikeHuckabee you’re an idiot.” As a result, Knoblock also tweeted to Rogen, “I mean you seem to love to tweet sarcastic sh*t to US politicians; I wonder if you’d do the same to Israel…”

Knobloch has continued his anti-semitic Twitter rant for hours (and counting), but Rogen has ignored the rest of his hate speech. Gossip Cop will update if further tweets are exchanged.
