Seth Rogen Takes A Stand Against Steve Bannon
Seth Rogen, stoner, manchild, Jew and now social justice warrior?
I was supposed to do a press tour on @SIRIUSXM on teusday but I’m no longer doing it because I can’t bring myself to appear on the same service that has decided to support Steve Bannon. Apologies to the shows I had to cancel. And fuck Steve Bannon.

The man — or should I say everyday modern American hero — has boycotted Sirius XM radio network because it has chosen to reinstate Steve Bannon as host of the “Breitbart News Daily.”
Naturally, in the digital age, after a tweet so breathtakingly bold, an electric give and take of opinion must commence. In an statement given to “The Hollywood Reporter” Sirius XM defended their dedication to free speech. “SiriusXM takes no political position of our own across our more than 175 channels, but we are here to provide an open forum no matter where listeners stand on the political spectrum. “
I’m sure Bannon appreciates Sirius XM’s dedication to providing a nonpartisan platform for the “alt-right.”
