Seth Rogen Is Using 1-Star Amazon Reviews to Promote His New Movie

When viewers give you one-star reviews, you turn them into a PR move. Or, at least that’s what Seth Rogen did when his series superhero series, “The Boys” received negative reviews from the public.

One Twitter User Suggested It

Journalist Ashley Feinberg tweeted a selection of negative reviews that the comedy received, suggesting that the production company should use it as promo material. Some users called the series “anti-Christian” while others claimed that it a “Hollywood left-wing propaganda production.” Someone even tweeted that the movie “caters to a depraved audience where the white male is shown as a demented perverted sexual abuser, white Christians are portrayed as racist in that they can only appreciate white male superheroes…”

Most producers would have tried to hurry these reviews and focus on the ones that praise the movie. Well, not Seth Rogen. 

” Advice taken” Rogen said, retweeting the message. The retweet quickly went viral and started an entire conversation around the movie. “Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn, as well as “The Walking Dead” star Jeffrey Dean Morgan joined the conversation, talking about how great the show is.

Apparently, it’s true what they say: there’s no such thing as bad publicity.
