When it is all said and done, former SEAL Cade Courtley, friend of “American Sniper” Chris Kyle, may have been dead right when he said obese filmmaker Michael Moore‘s career is “a really good confirmed kill” for calling snipers cowards on social media.
My uncle killed by sniper in WW2. We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot u in the back. Snipers aren’t heroes. And invaders r worse
— Michael Moore (@MMFlint) January 18, 2015
The hits just keep on coming, with the latest originating with Detroit rocker Kid Rock, who lit into Moore and actor Seth Rogen, who compared the blockbuster film to a fictitious Nazi propaganda film seen in “Inglourious Basterds.”
One thing is certain, there’s no ambiguity in Kid Rock’s position.
“F— you Michael Moore, you’re a piece of s— and your uncle would be ashamed of you,” he wrote. “Seth Rogen, your uncle probably molested you. I hope both of you catch a fist to the face soon.”
“God bless you Chris Kyle, Thank you for your service.”
Both Moore and Rogen tried to back away from their remarks after receiving an onslaught of criticism, but the general public isn’t buying it.
Moore also appeared to compare Kyle to James Earl Ray, the man who killed Martin Luther King, Jr.
On the opening weekend of “American Sniper,” which was also the weekend leading up to MLK Day, Moore commented on Facebook that “most Americans don’t think snipers are heroes,” according to the Independent Journal Review.
“Hopefully not on this weekend when we remember that man in Memphis, Tennessee, who was killed by a sniper’s bullet,” he added.
