Rob Schneider is currently the butt of the joke on Twitter after he blocked fellow comic Seth Rogen for an unknown reason over the weekend. In turn, multiple other comedians responded to his social media faux pas as they do best: Comically.

Rogen first noticed he had been blocked by the “Real Rob” star early Saturday morning, simply tweeting, “What the f–k?!”

Never ones to pass up a good pile-on, comedians like Ike Barinholtz, Kumail Najiani, and Moshe Kasher decided to troll Schneider back in return. Najiani even highlighted the “Sandy Wexler” actor’s notorious Donald Trump leanings with a screenshot.

Some celebrities like Nikki Glaser, Andy Cohen, and Ron Funches simply took the opportunity to join in on the laughter.

Rogen then took the bit a step further, tweeting a suspicious, close-up second image of Schneider and his family.

“Why does he seem so appalled to be sitting with his own family,” Rogen mocked.

Michael Ian Black led the trolling on the second photo, poking fun at both Rogen’s photography skills and Schneider’s puzzling pose.

For his part, Schneider has yet to address the insults from Rogen and his fellow comedians. His most recent tweet is far more politically inspired. “I just wish debate & dissent & persuasion was used in Gov’y & by main stream media!” he wrote.

Despite their similar occupations, Rogen and Schneider have not worked together.

    Rogen is a weirdo

  2. There is nothing wrong with “blocking” someone or something on social media. For example, anytime a news service runs a puff piece about that collection of human parasites known as the Kardashians, I hit the “block” button.

    Two crappy comedians squabble on Twitter. This is newsworthy how?

    It’s articles like this that remind me that Rob Schneider actually existed/continues to exist, so thanks, I guess. I thought he was pretty funny on SNL, but I guess he wasn’t able to find work afterwards. I still like the whole “I’m an ACTOUR” thing he used to do; that was funny as hell.

    I’ve not heard of any of these “comedians” other than Rob S and Seth R, so they can’t be that popular nationally. Though no doubt millions are familiar with them, I venture a guess that it’s in the tens of millions rather than the several hundred million who know of Rob and Seth through their work on stage and film.

    Besides Schneider and Rogen, never heard of any of these “comedians” and “celebrities “. Remember when you had to be known to be a celebrity?

      Uh, well, Kumail is on one of HBO’s biggest shows right now and has been for a couple of years. Michael Ian Black has been on dozens of TV shows since the early 90s. They’re both pretty legitimately famous. The rest are stand-up comics and pretty well-known in that arena, but admittedly if you don’t follow standup you can be forgiven for not knowing who they are.

        You can stop 100 random people in the street. 99 of them won’t know who these people are.

      • T Mo says:

        Also, Ike Barinholtz is a co-writer and co-star of The Mindy Project. I think he is also in Amy Schumer’s new movie. Andy Cohen isn’t a comedian at all. He’s a producer and talk show host on Bravo.
