Seth Rogen is a little offended, you guys…
No, his irritation doesn’t derive from Justin Bieber‘s undeniable thirst for him, but rather the fact that someone said he left behind a “stench of marijuana” in his old office on the Sony lot.
The Hollywood Reporter published a story with the headline: “Sony’s Amy Pascal Delays Office Move Due to Seth Rogen Pot Stench,” in which the editor sites several unnamed sources who claim Pascal — the former Sony Picture co-chair — cannot move into her new office on the studio’s lot because it smells like weed, much thanks to previous occupants Rogen and Evan Goldberg.
After several “news” outlets picked up the piece, Rogen took to Instagram to respond, sharing a photo of the headline and putting his own humorous twist on what’s actually a pretty messed up case of defamation.
He writes, “I don’t know what’s more irresponsible: that they would print a story that is completely untrue, or that they would refer to how pot smells as a “stench.” #myshitssmellsgood.”
Rogen’s publicist also released a statement about the article to Huffington Post, saying: “Glad to see that [co-president and chief of creative officer] Janice Min is resorting to her old ways of Us Weekly. Between this story and her hard hitting cover story on actresses and their make-up artists, it’s great to see that important stories like this make their way to the public.”
Meanwhile, all of this went public in the midst of a much-anticipated answer from Rogen as to whether or not he’ll roast Bieber later this month (we sincerely hope you can sense our sarcasm). The 21-year-old posted a myriad of tweets on Monday, begging The Interview actor to roast him.
