(Natural News) Celebrity “comedian” and actor Seth Rogen has retaliated against Lebanese-Canadian evolutionary psychologist and professor in the John Molson School of Business at Concordia University (Montreal) Gad Saad for writing a piece about Hollywood hypocrisy that was published in, then retracted from, Psychology Today.
In his piece, Saad criticized Rogen and others like him for their “moral hypocrisy.” He called them “champagne socialists” who “do not live out their convictions,” as well as “vacuous parasitic virtue signallers who wear Che Guevara T-shirts from the luxury of their Malibu homes.”
Saad was tough on the Hollywood crowd, in other words, which sent some of them, including Rogen specifically, into a tailspin. Within days, Saad’s article was “canceled” from Psychology Today without cause, and it would appear as though Rogen was behind it.
“The truly privileged elites know that deep down they are fraud,” Saad went on to write. “They suffer from existential guilt. Hence, one of the ways by which they assuage the guilt albatross around their necks is to demonstrate to the world that they are truly compassionate, truly loving, truly caring, truly profound.”
“Hence, they love all ‘undocumented’ immigrants. They love Mother Earth. They love the ozone layer. They love BLM. They love socialism. They love inner cities. They hate the gentrification of neighbourhoods. They love mentors of color. They cherish diversity. They love LGBTQ movies. They adore queer architecture. They are better than you. More caring, more cultured, more empathetic. This permits them to sleep better at night.”
Saad says we have “truly entered a dangerous reality”
Saad’s article went even further, calling people like Rogen “overpaid BS actor[s]” who make up for their horribleness buy signing on to all sorts of causes and movements. Some of them might appear laudable on the surface, but almost all of them are fronts used by the privileged with guilt complexes to feel better about themselves.
Rogen actually responded to Saad on Twitter, claiming that he watched Saad’s video and “it’s so stupid.”
“Why was I a left wing socialist when I was broke and unemployed according to your brilliant theory?” Rogen asked.
Almost immediately after tweeting this, Psychology Today pulled Saad’s article, this being the first time ever that the periodical did such a thing to Saad’s work.
“I have been writing for Psychology Today since 2008 (312 articles),” Saad wrote in a lengthy follow-up tweet. “This is the first one that they’ve ever pulled. I have generated nearly 7 million readers for them, but the use of ‘parasitic’ is simply unacceptable to them.”
“My book is titled ‘The PARASITIC Mind,'” Saad added. “I know the editor in chief personally. I know many of the senior editors. What is transpiring is truly chilling. OK, well, get ready. I’m activating my honey badger.”
Saad says he did receive a response from the associate editor at Psychology Today about why his article was pulled. Using words and phrases like “hypocritical fraud” and “vacuous parasitic signallers” is apparently off-limits, even if they express truth.
“P.S. – My article that was pulled had become one of the five most popular on their site in 30 minutes,” Saad added. “But apparently it was too triggering to be ‘mean’ to Seth Rogen. It’s not empirically based polite language. We have truly entered a dangerous reality.”
Rogen, as you may recall, donated gobs of cash to various bail funds set up following the George Floyd saga. One of these was the Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF), which also received cash from other hypocritical Hollywood celebrities like Justin Timberlake and Steve Carell.
