On Wednesday, actor Seth Rogen gave a passionate testimony to the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health & Human Services. He was trying raise awareness for Alzheimer's, a disease that personally affects his family.
Over 3 million people have seen the speech on YouTube.
Watch it here.
But, only 2 Senators were in the room to see it.
Rogen took to Twitter to call out the Senators who failed to show up for his testimony.
Not sure why only two senators were at the hearing. Very symbolic of how the Government views Alzheimer's. Seems to be a low priority.— Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) February 26, 2014
All those empty seats are senators who are not prioritizing Alzheimer's. Unless more noise is made, it won't change. pic.twitter.com/xDW6tlMHmH— Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) February 26, 2014
Rogen specifically called out Senator Mark Kirk. The Republican took time to take a picture with Rogen, but he did not stick around for the testimony.
.@SenatorKirk pleasure meeting you. Why did you leave before my speech? Just curious.— Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) February 26, 2014
