Comedic actor Seth Rogen sparked a Twitter frenzy after he shrugged off Los Angeles criminals breaking into cars, suggesting it's simply part of normal life in a big city.
The viral uproar began when the "Knocked Up" star reacted to a tweet from YouTube personality Casey Neistat, who wrote on Wednesday, "so our cars got robbed this morning because Los Angeles is a crime riddled 3rd world s---hole of a city" and expressed gratitude towards the LA Police Department for arresting the criminal and retrieving all the stolen belongings.
"Dude I’ve lived here for over 20 years. You’re nuts haha," Rogen reacted. "It’s lovely here. Don’t leave anything valuable in it. It’s called living in a big city."
