Country singer Craig Morgan blasted Hollywood liberals Seth Rogen and Michael Moore after they both made comments disparaging deceased Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, the subject of the new film "American Sniper."
"You are fortunate to enjoy the privilege and freedom of working in and living in the United States, and saying whatever you want (regardless of how ignorant the statement) thanks to people like Chris Kyle who serve in the United States military," he wrote to Rogen in a Facebook post on Monday
"Your statement is inaccurate and insensitive to Chris and his family. I'm sick and tired of people like you running your mouth when you have no idea what it takes for this country to maintain our freedoms."
The following day, Morgan — who served 10 years of active duty himself — was interviewed on "America's Morning Show," where he reiterated his comments about Rogen, and took Moore to task as well.
He called Moore's comments "self-serving" and advised him "you have the right to do certain things, but just because you have the right doesn't make it right."
Rogen and Moore's original comments were made on Sunday via Twitter. Rogen said "American Sniper kind of reminds me of the [fake Nazi propaganda] movie that's showing in the third act of 'Inglorious Basterds.'" Moore said his uncle was killed in WWII by a sniper, and was taught that "snipers were cowards" growing up.
Rogen later backpedaled, saying he liked "American Sniper." Moore dug his heels in, playing the victim and going on an anti-war tirade on Facebook
In addition to Craig Morgan, several other celebrities questioned Rogen and Moore for their statements, in some cases even likening them to Jane Fonda, aka "Hanoi Jane."
Blake Shelton wrote on Twitter
that it "sickens" him "to see celebrities or anybody slam the very people who protect their right to talk sh**. #truecowards."
"He's kidding, right?" Rob Lowe said of Moore's comments
"Hey Michael Moore. These are the guys who defend the right for you to say the stupid things you say, you might say thanks," wrote Charlie Daniels
Last but not least, late night host Seth Meyers capped it all off with joke on Monday night.
"After 'American Sniper' made $90 million this weekend, director Michael Moore tweeted yesterday that snipers aren't heroes. I don't know, Michael Moore. If you are that easy to spot, do you really want to make an enemy out of snipers?"
