A day after Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds responded to the B.C. premier's request to help get young people to stop partying during COVID-19, Vancouver-born comedian Seth Rogen is also offering up some advice.

Smoke weed instead.

"People of British Columbia! Please do not go out to parties and BBQs and other large gatherings! The COVID is still out there! It’s more fun to hang out alone and smoke weed and watch movies and TV shows anyway! Do that instead! Thank you!" reads a Tweet posted by Rogen Aug. 15.


Premier John Horgan's request came after the province's COVID-19 numbers increased this week, due to people in their 20s and 30s partying.

Reynolds left Horgan a voicemail Aug. 14, initially saying people probably don't want medical advice from him unless it regards plastic surgery. He posted the message on Twitter.

"Young folks in B.C., they're partying which is of course dangerous and they probably don't know that thousands of young people aren't just getting sick from coronavirus, they're also dying too. And of course it's terrible that it affects our more vulnerable, B.C. is home to some of the coolest people on earth. David Suzuki lives there," he said.
