TWITTER-SHAMED

Seth Rogen is calling out the senators who skipped his performance at Capitol Hill. The Canadian comic actor appeared before a congressional hearing on Wednesday to raise awareness for Alzheimer’s research and share his personal connection to the disease (his mother-in-law is afflicted with Alzheimer’s). Several senators skipped Rogen’s appearance, including Illinois senator Mark Kirk, who nonetheless thanked Rogen for showing up via Twitter. Rogen responded with the tweet: “SenatorKirk pleasure meeting you. Why did you leave before my speech? Just curious.” Rogen also posted a picture of the near-empty senate chamber with the comment: “All those empty seats are senators who are not prioritizing Alzheimer’s. Unless more noise is made, it won’t change.”
