Jesse Eisenberg Compares Comic-Con to Genocide

Jesse Eisenberg and Mamie Gummer hit the premiere of The End of the Tour held at the Writers Guild Theater on Monday (July 13) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Joining the pair at the event were actors Mickey Sumner, Jason Segel, and director James Ponsoldt.

Jesse recently made some comments about 2015 Comic-Con that many people are finding offensive.

“It is like being screamed at by thousands of people. I don’t know what the experience is throughout history, probably some kind of genocide,” Jesse told the Associated Press. “I can’t think of anything that’s equivalent.”

    What an ungrateful little prick. The thousands of people screaming at you are your fans.

  • smooshy

  • Jon M’Shulla

    He must have been receiving anti-Lex Luthor casting pressures. Not surprising but, he should have been ready for this.

  • Papaya Queen

    He seriously needs to get a PR-Person or something… for someone who has been acting and in that Business for quite a while he still f’s up when it comes to speaking in public or in interviews…

    he used a terrible analogy to explain the huge crowds of people screaming at comic con but he is only human. Many people have probably used bad analogies to explain certain situations and apologise for it after which he will most likely do.

    He is just a dick

    He is the most ungracious actor I have ever seen. Does he have talent, yes from what I have seen, but so do many others who would be a lot more grateful without having to kiss up to someone.
