    Seth Rogen is nothing if not a man of the people.

    Including the people whose work insurance may no longer cover contraception.

    "The people at Hobby Lobby are a--holes and those who voted to let them be a--holes are also a--holes," the Neighbors star tweeted today, sounding off on the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that paved the way for some privately owned businesses to be able to decline to pay insurance costs covering contraception if birth control doesn't coincide with their religious beliefs.

    Rogen's tweet linked to a report that Hobby Lobby, et al. would still continue to pay for insurance that covers Viagra and vasectomies—i.e. things needed by men.

    "People love defending people's rights to deprive other people of their rights," he also wrote.

    Then Rogen tweeted two hours later, "My fly has been down for three hours." So he may not be headed to Capitol Hill anytime soon to rally.

    But he's not the only celeb irked by the high court's decision.

    George Takei has called for a Hobby Lobby boycott, and others have tweeted their displeasure, including Ian Somerhalder, who posted a scathing critique to Instagram.

    "What Hobby Lobby and the Supreme Court think of you ladies... " wrote the Vampire Diaries star. "Have at it- pass it around, make some noise. It's the year 2014 wtf! Or wait! Is it the year 1014? Keep em barefoot and pregnant I guess!? Population at 9 billion by mid century! Can't feed the 7 billion we have now! But DONT WORRY EVERYONE! MONSANTO WILL FEED THE WORLD- Then! Then, we can all make lots of money off of the big pharmaceutical stocks because drug companies will be so busy feeding drugs to sick people because on genetically modified organisms! WooooHoooo! Wow can't fuc()$& wait!

    And though there's a movie in the works about the contraception battle—One Generation Away: The Erosion of Religious Liberty, being produced by former GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum's EchoLight Studios—most Hollywood stars probably aren't in a rush to read for parts.
