Open Twitter these days, and the chances are you’ll see negative comments everywhere.

Trolls love nothing more than hitting out on the social media site – especially when it comes to expressing political opinions – and it’s home to some of the nastiest spats the internet has to offer.

However, one celebrity is trying to use the social media site for good, after Seth Rogen contacted Donald Trump Jr directly through his page and asked him to reason with his father.

It turns out Trump Jr is a fan of the Knocked Up star, and follows his page. As a result, Rogen worked out that he could contact him directly through his direct messages.

Asking politely, Rogen first tweeted him saying: “Yo! @DonaldJTrumpJr! I noticed you follow me on Twitter. Please ask your dad to resign before he destroys the planet. Thanks dude.”

He wasn’t finished there though, and went on to post screenshots of the direct messages he had sent him.

The comedian wrote: “Hey man! It’s Seth. Your father is trying to discredit our media, collude with Russia, and destroy the environment. It would be super cool of you to be like, “yo, dad, why don’t you stop all this and go back to being just a guy on TV.” The majority of the world would be pretty psyched. Thanks!!!”

Pushing his message even further, Rogen said: “Also, please tell your dad that this guy Jason Chaffetz, you know the dude with the awesome Twitter handle @jasoninthehouse should probably investigate Flynn’s connection to Russia because he got fired over it. Thanks man! Have a good one,” he went on to say.

Rogen kept on going, saying: “Hey man. I don’t mean to come across as a weirdo or anything. I’ve just realized I could message you so I thought I would. 

‘So, maybe, ask your dad to investigate if his campaign was in talks with Russia leading up to the election? Or maybe just have someone investigate Flynn’s ties to Russia? Or maybe just ask your dad to go to hosting game shows? I bet he would prefer that. He doesn’t seem to like this. Thanks dude! Peace!!!”

So, could Rogen have changed the course of American politics with the messages? Maybe Donald Jr has convinced his dad to step down, and the end of the world isn’t happening just yet? Maybe everything is going to be alright after all?

Actually – it looks like Donald Trump Jr didn’t even bother to reply, so we wouldn’t count on it…
