Jewish actor Seth Rogen had a succinct response to an antisemitic tweet from an account that was subsequently disabled.

The deleted tweet written by the now defunct account “@NellyHusz” and obtained via screenshot by Indy 100 read:

“I had a dream last night where all the Jewish people converted to Catholicism. One can hope and pray.”

Rogen—who is notorious for being outspoken against antisemitism—wrote in response:

“F’k off.”

People praised Rogen for shutting down the hateful message.

People were not afraid to reference the deleted account holder @NellyHusz.

In an interview with Haaretz earlier this year, the 38-year-old actor challenged the antisemitic perception that “Jews are in charge and control” in Hollywood while promoting his HBO comedy/drama film, An American Pickle.

Rogen said:

“I personally haven’t found it incredibly hard to juggle. I try to call out antisemitism where I see it.”

“I know for a fact that antisemitic people also do thrive in Hollywood—so the notion that Jews control the careers of everyone in Hollywood is wildly inaccurate.”

He added:

“It’s not a reality I have a hard time grappling with: I know factually that Jews do not control every element of Hollywood.”

“If they did, there would be a lot of people who are working who would not be.”

“The notion of calling out antisemitism within Hollywood is easy to me, especially because it’s my home community—Hollywood, not Jews.”
