Blake Shelton is speaking out against actor Seth Rogen‘s comments about the blockbuster film, American Sniper. The movie,  starring Bradley Cooper as the late Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history, has come under criticism from some who believe it glorifies a killer.

The controversy surrounding the Oscar-nominated drama intensified when Seth Rogen tweeted on Sunday, “American Sniper kind of reminds me of the movie that’s showing in the third act of Inglorious Basterds.” He was referring to a fake Nazi propaganda movie about a German sniper that was shown in the Quentin Tarantino flick.

Blake took issue with that comment Monday night, tweeting, ” Sickens me to see celebrities or anybody slam the very people who protect their right to talk sh*t.. #truecowards.” He added, “Proud to support our military.. Period.”

Rogen insists he wasn’t trying to slight American Sniper. He clarified Monday on Twitter, “I just said something ‘kinda reminded’ me of something else. I actually liked American Sniper. It just reminded me of the Tarantino scene.”

“I wasn’t comparing the two. Big difference between comparing and reminding. Apples remind me of oranges. Can’t compare them, though. But if you were having a slow newsday, you’re welcome for me giving you the opportunity to blow something completely out of proportion,” he continued.
