Michael Moore and Seth Rogen pissed off a lot of people with their comments about the new Clint Eastwood movie “American Sniper.” The owner of a chain of Michigan steakhouses is so mad that he issued an official ban on both celebrities if they ever try to order something from one of his restaurants.
Tommy Brann, the owner of Brann’s Sizzling Steaks and Sports Grille, put up a sign in front of his restaurants that reads “Michael Moore and Seth Rogan (sic) are NOT allowed in my place.” Photos of the restaurant’s sign went viral on Twitter and prompted further comments from the owner. He told the Huffington Post that the comments the actor and documentary filmmaker made were “offensive” and “hurtful” and “if Chris Kyle was still alive, he would handle Michael Moore in a minute.” We’re sure that both men are saddened by the fact that there is one place they won’t be able to cure their munchies.
Rogen drew the ire of “American Sniper” fans after he compared the movie to “Nation’s Pride,” the movie within the Quentin Tarantino movie “Inglourious Basterds” about a German sniper who becomes an icon media hero in the Third Reich. He has since apologized for his comment.
Moore posted on his Twitter: “My uncle killed by sniper in WW2. We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot u in the back. Snipers aren’t heroes. And invaders r worse.” He has not backed down from his Tweet despite demands that he apologize or redact his statement and he even responded to the ban by asking his followers to find restaurants that would serve him by Tweeting him with the hashtag #tableformikeandseth. We assume they would only be places with a “Super Size” option and extra wide seating.
