Kid Rock Hits Out At American Sniper Critics: ‘F**k you Michael Moore’.

On Friday, Afghanistan war veteran Dakota Meyer posted a photo to his Twitter account of himself and the former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate holding up a sign that said “F— you Michael Moore,” with the Os in Moore deliberately drawn as cross-hairs. The All Summer Long star went off on both filmmakers, writing: “F**k you Michael Moore, you’re a piece of s**t and your uncle would be ashamed of you.” Moore initially criticised the film for glorifying snipers, before clarifying that there were aspects of it he enjoyed.Rogen wrote on his Twitter page, jokingly, that Kid Rock is his uncle — after Rock wrote on his website the comedian was “probably molested” by his real one.

According to Palin’s daughter Bristol, the former governor of Alaska, along with Dakota Meyer, a Medal of Honor recipient, held up the sign pictured above, complete with crosshairs drawn into the “O’s” in Moore’s name, at the 2015 Shot Show convention being held this week in Las Vegas.Initially, Seth Rogen dismissed the criticism of that comment, attributing it to a “slow news day.” But since then, apparently someone has reminded him that movies don’t make money unless people go to see them. Rogen also tried to explain his take on “American Sniper” and why he wrote the film reminds him of the third act of “Inglorious Basterds,” a Quentin Tarantino film. The sign was a response to a tweet Moore sent earlier this week criticizing the film “American Sniper,” about the life of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, the most prolific sniper in U.S. military history. “My uncle killed by sniper in WW2.

Funnyman Rogen also suggested the film bared a resemblance to a Nazi propaganda picture shown within the movie Inglourious Basterds — but also went on to clarify that he wasn’t comparing the two. Well, Rock clearly wasn’t happy with Rogen’s criticism of “American Sniper” because the musician is known for charitable work for active military members and veterans. Rock added in his initial criticism of Rogen online that he hopes Rogen “catches a fist to the face” for his “American Sniper” comments, along with documentary filmmaker Michael Moore. Palin uploaded pictures of herself at the event to her official Facebook page and her daughter Bristol also confirmed the image was Palin, embedding it in a blog post which she tweeted from her official account. And invaders r worse.” After receiving backlash from conservatives and supporters of “American Sniper,” Moore elaborated on his comments on Facebook but did not back down, clarifying that his comments were in reference to snipers but that he was not specifically commenting on the film.

Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below. “American Sniper” stars Bradley Cooper who portrays Chris Kyle, a real member of the Navy Seals who died Feb. 2, 2013 after coming home from from four tours in the Iraq War. Even before the release of the film, Kyle’s stories were a source of contention: He was sued by retired professional wrestler and former Minnesota Gov.
