Seth Rogen Cancels SiriusXM Press Tour Over Steve Bannon’s Return to Radio Show

Seth Rogen announced on Twitter that he would be canceling his press tour on SiriusXM after it became known that ex-Trump administration strategist Steve Bannon would be returning to his former role as host of “Breitbart News Daily” on SiriusXM’s conservative Patriot channel.

“I was supposed to do a press tour on SiriusXM on teusday [sic] but I’m no longer doing it because I can’t bring myself to appear on the same service that has decided to support Steve Bannon,” Rogen tweeted. “Apologies to the shows I had to cancel. And f— Steve Bannon.”

Rogen is currently doing press for James Franco’s “The Disaster Artist,” which Rogen produced and also stars in.

SiriusXM released a statement following the news:

“Since its inception, SiriusXM has promised to deliver a diversity of opinions and viewpoints, from conservative to progressive to everything in between. SiriusXM takes no political position of our own across our more than 175 channels, but we are here to provide an open forum no matter where listeners stand on the political spectrum,” SiriusXM spokesperson Patrick Reilly told Variety in a statement. “Free speech is vitally important. We ardently believe that by allowing a virtually unlimited platform of viewpoints, we are doing our best to uphold that core value.”

Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Melissa Etheridge also announced she would no longer be participating in SiriusXM’s music talk channel Volume, writing that she can no longer “in good conscience” be a part of her own show since Bannon’s re-hiring.
