Kevin Smith did not receive an invitation to attend the upcoming roast of Bruce Willis. Many expected the director - who openly discussed his unfavorable experience working with Willis - to be a part of the event. Smith has replied in his typical sarcastic fashion.
According to Smith, before the director worked with Willis on Cop Out in 2010, Smith had been a huge fan of the action star. But his experience working with Willis was famously negative. Smith first tried not to call out Willis by name, merely hinting that one of the actors in the film "wouldn't even sit" for a photo shoot while implying that the troublesome actor was not Tracey Morgan. Smith was later quoted warning fans not to meet their heroes. This incident made Smith a prime candidate for the roast in many's eyes. The bad blood coupled with Smith's comedic abilities seemed like a lock. Well, not so much.

Smith did not receive an invitation to the upcoming Comedy Central roast, a fact that did not go unnoticed by his fans. In true fashion, the director took to Twitter to comment on the apparent slight by referencing the very film that led to their falling out. Smith first noted that he doesn't actually like to make fun of other people. He also admitted that he didn't mind skipping the event entirely. But he couldn't help but make a jab at Willis for not allowing Smith the option, calling the decision a "cop out." Read the full tweet below:
I have a hard time making fun of others (which is why I tend to turn inward and mock myself). And honestly: even though I’ve worked with him twice, I’m way okay with not being invited to this Roast. But it does kinda feel like a... what’s the term I’m looking for here? A cop out. https://t.co/oGLqUCqDTz— KevinSmith (@ThatKevinSmith) June 29, 2018 Related: Kevin Smith Denies That He's Directing a Marvel/Star Wars Movie
