Washington Post Now Blaming Seth Rogen for Nigerian Kidnappings, Benghazi and Comedy Atrocity, ‘The Watch’

by Andy Marx & Will McArdle

On the heels of being the only person in the nation able to link the murderous Santa Barbara rampage of psychopath Elliot Rodgers to the films of Judd Apatow and Seth Rogen, Washington Post film critic Ann Hornaday has revealed her latest theories which connect Rogen to the deadly 2012 attack on the American embassy in Benghazi, the recent kidnapping of nearly 300 schoolgirls in Nigeria, and the 2012 comedy atrocity “The Watch,” starring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, and Jonah Hill.

“How many more people have to die before we stop allowing Seth Rogen to make broad comedies,” Hornaday told Hollywood & Swine. “It’s clear if you look at the Benghazi embassy attack that those terrorists were simply trying to recreate the third act battle scene from Rogen’s 2008 film, ‘Pineapple Express.’  And no one can tell me otherwise that Rogen’s 2007 comedy ‘Superbad’ about guys doing whatever it takes to get girls didn’t somehow inspire that militant Islamic group Boko Haram to attack that school in Nigeria.”

Hornaday, who received an enormous amount of backlash this week after stating that Judd Apatow and Seth Rogen films in which schlubby arrested adolescent characters who always get the girl, helped contribute to Rodgers violent rampage that left six people being murdered, claims that unlike her absurd theories she can prove Rogen was directly responsible for “The Watch” which bombed at the boxoffice and scored a 17% percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

“Seth Rogen can talk all he wants about not being responsible for Elliot Rodger’s murderous rampage,” Hornaday said.  “But he can’t deny involvement in ‘The Watch’ because the Writer’s Guild of America gave him a screenwriting credit for it.”
