Seth Rogen has been referring to that rotten come-to-life Caillou doll Justin Bieber as a piece of shit for months now, almost to the point where it seems like just uttering a word beginning with the letter J might trigger a Pavlovian response of Seth unintentionally muttering “piece of shit” under his breath. And yet Justin Bieber, the know-it-all asshole who has a smarmy response for everything never had anything smarmy and juvenile to say about it until now. If I had to guess the reason why it took him so long, I’d say it’s because toddlers are notoriously difficult to calm down after they’ve started crying.
Justin’s response was prompted by Seth Rogen’s appearance on Howard Stern Monday, where he told the story of My Buddy summoning him backstage at a German talk show and proceeding to act like a delusional little shit. He also called him a dick and a motherfucker (~swoon~ be still my heart). So Justin did what that pre-teen baby does best: he went to pout-it-out on Twitter.
First things first, if you’re going to throw shade, at least spell the person’s name right. It’s Rogen. Unless he was trying to call out Joe Rogan (“Fear Factor is too scary u gave me nightmares”). Second, Justin must have snuck out of the Kindergarten area and into the big kid playground, because that passive-aggressive “Sorry I didn’t bow down” comment is pure 3rd grade girl. I’m surprised he didn’t follow it up with “…and I’m only inviting you to my birthday party because my mom is making me.”
And only a Canadian would begin an attempted Twitter fight with the word sorry and end with a compliment.
