Hollywood celebrities has continued their civil war on Twitter, posting angry tirades at each other.

The conflict among actors broke out after actor Seth Rogen’s comments about the hit film American Sniper, based on Navy SEAL Chris Kyle’s experiences in Iraq, was posted on Twitter.

In the post he said the film reminded him of a Nazi propaganda film about a sniper that appeared in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds.

Since the comments, a Rogen faced a major public backlash, which forced the pudgy actor to clarify his comments on Twitter.

Rogen Tweeted that he has nothing against war veterans and was not comparing the movie to Nazi propaganda.

Kid Rock and Actor Dean Cane came out and ripped Rogen, with Rock calling him a piece of S***.
Dean Cain tweeted that he had no right to make the comment in the original tweet because he’d never fought in a war.
Cain, wrote: ‘Seth… I like your films, but right now, I wanna kick your ass. Chris is an American Hero. Period. Go to war. Then we’ll talk.’

However, actor Alec Baldwin came to Rogen’s defense Tweeting:: ‘Did @RealDeanCain threaten Seth Rogen? And isn’t that the same kind of troubled thinking that got Chris Kyle killed?’

The Clint Eastwood film is a biopic of Kyle, who was recognized as the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history.

The movie has been nominated for Academy Awards for Best Picture and Best Actor, while also being criticized as being propaganda for the U.S. military, by elements in Hollywood, the same Hollywood that was in an uproar because of Sony’s pulling of Rogen’s spoof comedy film, “The Intern” which portrayed the North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un, from theaters.

Filmmaker Michael Moore began the heated argument when he tweeted that he raised to believe snipers were ‘cowards’ since his uncle died by a Japanese sniper shot in World War II.

Moore Tweeted: “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.’

However, after a furor erupted over his comments the director backtracked on his comments on his Facebook Page, writing that he thought the film was well made but could have done a better job at contextualizing the Iraq War.

Rogen has attempted to quiet down the controversy on Twitter by giving a further explanation: “It appears I need to further clarify a tweet I sent a few days ago. I said a sniper movie kind of reminded me of a scene in another movie that involved a sniper movie. I didn’t compare the two at all. I merely said that one kind of reminded me of the other, because they both involved plots about the most lethal of snipers.”
