A Washington Post writer says she understands why her article about Santa Barbara killer Elliot Rodger offended and upset Seth Rogen and Judd Apatow.
Over the weekend, Ann Hornaday published a piece about the horrific YouTube manifesto Rodger uploaded prior to murdering six people.

(It's no surprise that Schumer cites Shirley Temple as a major inspiration.) She is also touring the country with her wildly popular stand-up act — while simultaneously writing and starring in a Judd Apatow movie, slated for release next summer. And yet, when asked about becoming the next big thing — Kristen Wiig comparisons come to mind — she balks. "Um...
