The website said Rogen had cluelessly attacked former presidential candidate Mitt Romney for using the slogan of the Ku Klux Klan.
Newsbusters claimed Rogen tweeted “that awkward moment you realize Mitt Romney’s Slogan ‘Keep America American’ was the same slogan used by the KKK in 1922…” — linking to a page at MoveOn.org.
“[T]here was Seth Rogen happily tweeting this Big Lie about Romney that was making the rounds of liberal-land media, a lie which precisely meets the description that a now indignant Rogen calls – when applied to himself – as ‘horribly insulting and misinformed,’” the conservative website wrote.
But Rogan never tweeted the words attributed to him, a fact he pointed out on his official Twitter account:
@newsbusters haha! That Romney tweet was from a parody account, not me, you morons. Way to do exactly what you said I did. Misquote.
