Seth Rogen addressed the latest controversy around him over a series of tweets about the film, "American Sniper," by apologizing if he offended anyone. The actor said in a statement to The Associated Press (AP) on Thursday that his comments had no political implications.

Rogen was criticized after he wrote on his Twitter account on Sunday that Clint Eastwood's film, which is about Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, reminded him of "Nation's Pride," a fake Nazi propaganda film shown in Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds."

The actor later clarified his remark, writing on Twitter the next day that he "actually liked" Eastwood's film and that he was not comparing the two films.

On Thursday, "The Interview" star said that the movie only reminded him of the other film as “they both involved plots about the most lethal of snipers.”

"My comment about the movie was not meant to have any political implications," he said in statement, according to AP. "Any political meaning was ascribed to my comment by news commentary."

The actor reportedly concluded the statement by saying he hoped "this clears things up."

Several celebrities like actor Dean Cain, singer Kid Rock, and country singer Craig Morgan slammed Rogen.

"You are fortunate to enjoy the privilege and freedom of working in and living in the United States, and saying whatever you want (regardless of how ignorant the statement) thanks to people like Chris Kyle who serve in the United States military. Your statement is inaccurate and insensitive to Chris and his family," Morgan wrote on his Facebook page.

Meanwhile, actor Alec Baldwin sided with Rogen on Twitter Wednesday, defending what he called "freedom of speech."
