Actor Seth Rogen has faced a lot of flak online after he responded to Casey Neistat’s anger over his car being burglarized in Los Angeles on a lighter note. On Wednesday, Neistat, a YouTube personality, took to Twitter to complain about things that got stolen from his car.

He wrote, “so our cars got robbed this morning because Los Angeles is a crime-riddled 3rd world shithole of a city,” before adding, “but tremendous appreciation and gratitude to the hardworking officers at the @LAPDWestLA who not only arrested the motherfucker but they got all of our stolen goods back.”

Rogen saw the 40-year-old filmmaker’s tweet and replied by saying: “Dude I’ve lived here for over 20 years. You’re nuts haha. It’s lovely here. Don’t leave anything valuable in it. It’s called living in a big city.” The comedian’s response did not seem to go down well with Neistat, who then said, “i can still be mad tho right?  feel so violated.”

But Rogen did not stop there and wrote, “You can be mad but I guess I don’t personally view my car as an extension of myself and I’ve never really felt violated any of the 15 or so times my car was broken in to. Once a guy accidentally left a cool knife in my car so if it keeps happening you might get a little treat.”

Neistat then said, “i didn’t get any treats. he just took the decorations for my daughters 7th birthday party and left bloody hand prints.  serious question; how did you get your car broken into 15 times?” To which, Rogen answered: “I lived in West Hollywood for 20 years and parked on the street,” before adding, “Also it sucks your shit was stolen but LA is not some shithole city. As far as big cities go it has a lot going for it.”

Rogen’s responses also upset several others on the internet as many slammed him for his ignorance. A user tweeted, “Seth Rogan over here like I know you said the restaurant gave you food poisoning, but I've had food poisoning many times from there and I still love the food.  Plus one time they gave me extra bread.  Maybe don't crap on the guy who just had a really bad day.”

The second one said, “No he’s saying that because he’s part of the .5% and doesn’t feel any economic impact from 15+ break ins that nobody else should be upset because he doesn’t think it’s valid since he can afford it. He’s the type to say ‘just stop being poor’.” “I empathize with your situation Seth's response is like, well, your car shouldn't be dressed like that,” the third user added.

Calling out Rogen, a person tweeted, “Bad take, ‘it's called living in a big city’ shouldn't be used to dismiss the rise of crime.” Another one commented, “Seth you’re an insufferable twit with not the slightest sense of reality nor instinct of good faith. Only a person of low character such as yourself would smugly dismiss people’s (very valid) concerns about the current state of crime & public safety in Los Angeles.” “imagine not being rich and someone breaking into your car. then imagine celebrities saying it’s not a Big Deal,” a tweet read.
