Actor Seth Rogen said he has canceled his appearances on SiriusXM early next week, pointing to the satellite radio provider’s decision to allow former White House strategist Steve Bannon to host a show.
“I was supposed to do a press tour on @SIRIUSXM on teusday [sic] but I’m no longer doing it because I can’t bring myself to appear on the same service that has decided to support Steve Bannon. Apologies to the shows I had to cancel. And fuck Steve Bannon,” Rogen wrote Friday on Twitter.

Bannon was a regular weekend host before joining President Trump’s campaign and the White House. Bannon left the White House in August and returned to Breitbart News as executive chairman.
“As I have said all along, everything I brought to the Trump campaign came directly from the listeners I spoke with every morning on 'Breitbart News Daily' on SiriusXM’s Patriot channel,” Bannon said in a statement. “From the moment I left the White House, getting back behind the microphone was very important to me. To get on the road outside the Beltway and to spend time with the great men and women of America is an honor.”
