Seth Rogen’s “piece of s–t” tweet to Justin Bieber in January was just the tip of an ill-willed iceberg. Successive slams of the superstar continued last night when Rogen dropped by The Daily Show to call Bieber an “a–hole.”
Justin Bieber is probably really regretting asking to meet Seth Rogen all those years ago. The trash talking of Bieber by Rogen kicked off in January when he tweeted that the singer was “a piece of s–t” the same day the 19-year-old was arrested on suspicion of DUI.
It hasn’t stopped since. But while most of us get to nurse our childhood faux pas in private and move on to adulthood as if none of it ever happened, the Biebs doesn’t have that luxury.
Thanks to Rogen’s alleged recollections on various media shows of meeting Bieber in which he says he found the then child singer to be obnoxious and came away thinking he was a “motherf—ker,” “a d–k,” and “a piece of s–t,” his one-sided feud has made headlines.
His appearance on last night’s The Daily Show with irreverent host Jon Stewart will prove no exception.
Stewart then engaged in a bit of banter about Bieber’s now-defunct relationship with Selena Gomez. After revealing his children used to love the actress’ former Disney show Wizards of Waverly Place, Stewart said he didn’t know how to explain her coupling with Justin to them.
From there, the conversation moved to Stewart asking Rogen if he had kids. The Neighbors star replied he didn’t, but said he had a dog.
Stewart asked if he spoke to his dog about Bieber, to which Rogen quipped:
“But she doesn’t need to know Justin Bieber is a douchebag. She seems accepting of it, actually.”
Stewart then chimed back that the dog probably “knows the truth” about the singer.
Rogen, aiming low, snarked, “If a dog can smell one thing, it’s an a–hole.”
Earlier this week the 32-year-old actor laid into the “Baby” singer on the Today show with Matt Lauer, when he declared:
“I don’t know anyone who likes Justin Bieber,” while effectively daring the studio audience to disagree.
“I met him a few times,” Rogen told Stern Monday. “He’s a good example of someone who you meet, who you think you are going to hate and then you get to hate him. You meet him and he lives up to every one of your expectations.”
Seth recalled meeting Bieber on a German talk show when Bieber would have been about 14 or 15-years-old. Rogen was told Bieber wanted to meet, and the actor claims Justin acted as if he had requested the introduction.
“‘What the f–k, I don’t give a f–k about, I don’t want to meet you!” Rogen recalled to Stern.
He added, “Don’t act all nonplussed to meet me. I didn’t want to meet you. I was totally cool not meeting you.”
He went on to say that Bieber possessed “no humility, no awareness, no sense that ‘I appeal to young, young people, maybe a grown man who works in comedy doesn’t f–king give a s–t about me.'”
Back in March, Rogen slated Bieber on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live with host Andy Cohen, during which he said of the singer:
“He seems like he is obnoxious and ungrateful and insincere.”
He added, “He puts people’s lives in danger with his horrible, horrible behavior. And overall he acts like a piece of s–t.”
Justin finally responded to Seth’s baiting early Thursday morning, tweeting:
Seth Rogan sorry I didnt bow down when I asked 2 meet u was probably a bit shy and didn’t want to be over the top but still. love ur movies.

The world awaits Rogen’s likely insult or expletive-filled reply.
The Daily show airs on Comedy Central Extra tonight at midnight.
