Seth Rogen has a clear message for those criticizing his support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

The "Lion King" star posted to Instagram Monday the words "Black Lives Matter," along with a caption saying he wants nothing to do with those who take issue with the phrase.

"If this is a remotely controversial statement to you, feel free to unfollow me," he wrote.

The post garnered criticism from some, who took to the comments to give Rogen their opinions.

"#alllivesmatter," wrote one person. "People making this only about blacks. When its about all races of color. Why do all these brutality videos only show the end? They don’t show wtf these people where doing to get in trouble in the first place."

Rogen wasn't going to let that slide.

"(expletive) off," the actor replied. "You don't deserve my movies anymore. Stop watching my (expletive)."

That person wasn't the only one to get a reply from Rogen. The actor responded to several comments expressing "all lives matter" with a the same concise expletive.

Rogen's post comes in the wake of protests across the country sparked by the death of George Floyd, a black man in Minneapolis who died in the custody of police. Former officer Derek Chauvin was charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter in Floyd's death.

In addition to the critics, a number of people also left supportive comments for Rogen.

"all lives matter comments are like watching trump take his clothes off," wrote actress Jessica Serfaty. "Excruciating."

"Much Love Seth," wrote DJ Many. "Thanks For Supporting Us, We Will Always Support You."
