Actor/comedian Seth Rogen has been spending a lot of time talking smack about Justin Bieber lately, from recounting a couple of negative run-ins he’s had with the pop star to calling him a “piece of sh**” on Twitter.
Now, the 20-year-old singer has responded to Rogen’s comments through a tweet that gives a sort of a sarcastic apology, mixed with a strange compliment:
“Seth Rogan sorry I didnt bow down when I asked 2 meet u was probably a bit shy and didn’t want to be over the top but still. love ur movies,” Bieber wrote.
Rogen, who’s currently promoting his new film Neighbors, has taken the opportunity to bash Bieber on several of the stops of his press tour, starting with a story he told Howard Stern about his awkward first encounter with the singer.
Both were guests on the same German talk show several years back and Bieber apparently requested to meet with Rogen…and then things got weird.
“… I went outside to meet him and he was acting like I asked to meet him,” Rogen recalled. “It was very nonchalant, ‘Yo man. Wassup,’ and I was like, ‘What the f***, I don’t give a f*** about, I don’t want to meet you. Don’t act all nonplussed to meet me. I didn’t want to meet you. I was totally cool not meeting you…”
A couple years later, the two Canadian celebrities ran into each other at an MTV awards show, and Bieber once again rubbed Seth the wrong way by wearing a snake around his arm like an accessory and trying to be funny.
Finally, while speaking with Matt Lauer earlier this week, Rogen flat out stated, “None of these people in this room like Justin Bieber. I can guarantee you that…I don’t know anybody who likes Justin Bieber.”
While Seth Rogen has yet to respond to Justin Bieber’s tweet, it’s safe to say that the outspoken actor will likely have some fun with Bieber’s retort, especially since he misspelled his name.
We’re thinking these two won’t be acting ‘Neighborly’ anytime soon!
