Famous Canadian and inventor of the weed rolling tray Seth Rogen got into it online recently for his views on the perils of living in LA. The city has seen a supposed spate of store robberies and car break-ins across the city recently. We’re going to have to bring back The Club if we’re going to survive!
Casey Neistat, a YouTuber, recently complained on Twitter about a bad break-in he experienced. According to Yahoo!:
“So our cars got robbed this morning because Los Angeles is a crime riddled 3rd world s—hole of a city but tremendous appreciation and gratitude to the hardworking officers at the @LAPDWestLA who not only arrested the motherf—er but they got all of our stolen goods back,” Neistat wrote.
Seth somehow got involved and took the two cents from the floor of his car and threw it into the discussion:
“Dude I’ve lived here for over 20 years. You’re nuts haha. It’s lovely here,” [Seth] tweeted back. “Don’t leave anything valuable in it. It’s called living in a big city.”

It’s a sort of fair comment. Big cities do come with risks. Things like car robberies, extortionate rent, and getting scammed by Salt Bae happen all the time! It’s called “glamour,” not “third-world s—hole!” Unfortunately for Seth, the weed brain crept in and he kept going.
While Rogen’s first comments were met with mixed reaction from people who agreed about the “big city” risks, and others who blasted Los Angeles’ crime rate. His second response to Neistat (who’d written back, “i can still be mad tho right? feel so violated”) also caused a kerfuffle on social media.
“You can be mad but I guess I don’t personally view my car as an extension of myself and I’ve never really felt violated any of the 15 or so times my car was broken in to,” Rogen tweeted back. “Once a guy accidentally left a cool knife in my car so if it keeps happening you might get a little treat.”

What is Seth doing to get his car broken into FIFTEEN TIMES? Is he opening the door for would-be robbers and then taking their cool knives? If you’re trying to convince someone that your city doesn’t have disproportionate crime issues, this is the wrong approach! Much like the audience after Seth’s Emmy speech, commenters were left confused and angry.
Getting broken into 15 times is something you should get used to and expect?

What an absolutely weird take to have about someone being robbed.

Rest assured that Seth is likely safe from future burglaries. A car burglar could catch him mid-pee in a bottle and I don’t think any car is worth that experience!
