Seth Rogen says Twitter CEO 'does not seem to give a f***' about fighting white supremacists

Dude claims he had a direct line to @jack -- for 8 whole months.

When his parents denied him a Super NES, he got mad. When they traded a prize Sega Genesis for a 2400 baud modem, he got even. Years of Internet shareware, eBay'd possessions and video game testing jobs after that, he joined Engadget. He helped found The Verge, and later served as Gizmodo's reviews editor. When he's not madly testing laptops, apps, virtual reality experiences, and whatever new gadget will supposedly change the world, he likes to kick back with some games, a good Nerf blaster, and a bottle of Tejava.

Seth Rogen is best known for stoner comedy, but he may not be joking about this -- today, the actor/producer/comedian called out Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey for his stance on white supremacists. 

The tweet kinda speaks for itself, but just in case you can't see the embed (or if it gets deleted), here it is in plain text:

I've been DMing with @jack about his bizarre need to verify white supremacists on his platform for the last 8 months or so, and after all the exchanges, I've reached a conclusion: the dude simply does not seem to give a fuck.  

Apparently, Rogen had a direct line to the head of Twitter for the past 8 months to chat about Twitter's hate problem. Wow, to say the least.

Mind you, it's not like Twitter is doing nothing about its toxicity problem -- in December, it started banning notable white nationalist and nazi groups, and the company's currently fighting in court to keep them banned. 

But Twitter is also facing pressure from the right, claiming that the social network is trying to suppress conservative viewpoints -- reportedly, Dorsey has been holding secret dinners with conservative leaders who believe the tech industry is biased. 

Now, Rogen seems to be suggesting @Jack doesn't care as much as he lets on. That's something that feminist Mikki Kendall seems to agree with:

But we can't say for sure that Rogen isn't just frustrated with Twitter's slow progress. (Show us the receipts, Seth!) 

Twitter declined to comment. Rogen didn't immediately reply to requests for comment.

Rogen also tweeted at Donald Trump Jr. last year, asking him if he could convince his dad to quit.
