It was a master class in Twitter trolling.
Mitchell was none too happy with Rogen, who had called him a “stupid motherfucker” a day earlier. However, many of Mitchell’s angry direct messages were met with variations of “going into a meeting" replies.
Here’s one DM exchange Rogen shared with his 6.7 million Twitter followers:
I triggered Bill Mitchell and then kept telling him I had meetings. pic.twitter.com/clgyHHw2t6— Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) August 30, 2017
Mitchell replied by sharing his own end of the conversation:
Mitchell also DM’ed Rogen to complain about him sharing the messages. He probably should’ve seen the response coming:
Bill Mitchell can't stop. Neither can I. pic.twitter.com/usLNifxRtr— Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) August 30, 2017
Mitchell wasn’t quite done venting yet. He posted a tweet that indicated no awareness of the fact that he was being played:
The hilarious part about @Sethrogen lying about "being in meetings," is that he actually ISN'T in meetings - at all. Think about that.— Bill Mitchell (@mitchellvii) August 30, 2017
Rogen’s reply? You guessed it:
Sorry dude, in a meeting. https://t.co/e5GvUb8JyX?ncid=edlinkushpmg00000313— Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) August 30, 2017
