Lol! Jason Segel Quits Twitter Over Sandwichwes and Burrito

Jason Segel found out the hard way that you should never mess with burritos—or at least not with the people who love them.

While promoting his new movie, Sex Tape, on The Late Show With David Letterman Tuesday night, the actor revealed that he stopped Tweeting two years ago when an offhand remark he made about his preference for sandwiches over burritos caused a furor among some of his followers.

“It was 2 a.m. and I was hungry,” the actor recalled. “I had a choice between a burrito and a sandwich. I chose to make a sandwich, and it was delightful. So I innocently Tweeted, ‘Sandwiches are more diverse than burritos.’”

That’s when the problems started. “For the next day and a half, it was a firestorm of debate,” he says.

Sex Tape” actor Jason Segel got too much backlash after tweeting that sandwiches are better than burritos.

Actor Jason Segel hasn’t been active on his Twitter account since April 2012.

But there’s a reason Segel has neglected his over 2.5 million followers and it’s all because of the backlash he received after announcing that sandwiches are better than burritos during a late night eating session.

At the New York screening of his new movie “Sex Tape,” Segel told Variety what went down on the fateful night that led him to quit Twitter:

“I realized that’s not a power I want to wield. At one point, at 3 a.m., I was deciding between eating a sandwich and a burrito, and I ate a sandwich. It was delicious, and I tweeted, ‘Sandwiches are better than burritos.’
And then there was a firestorm of debate. People hated me: ‘You don’t know about burritos,’ they’d say. I decided that was too much responsibility for me.”
Segel appeared on “The Late Show” with David Letterman last night and the two discussed the incident.

Segel, who stands by his sandwich preference, revealed his top five favorites:
  1. BLT
  2. Reuben
  3. Tuna Melt
  4. Grilled cheese
  5. PB&J
