Hollywood actor Seth Rogen has again insulted Justin Bieber in public, calling the popstar "obnoxious" and saying that he "puts people's lives in danger".

Rogen previously criticised Bieber in January following the Canadian artist's arrest for driving under the influence. Taking to Twitter, Rogen described Bieber as a "piece of shit" in a tweet which went on to be retweeted over 200,000 times.

The comedy actor, famed for his roles in Knocked Up and This Is The End, appeared on US TV show Watch What Happens Live earlier this week when he was asked by host Andy Cohen to explain his hugely popular tweet and subsequently launched into more criticism of Bieber. "In my opinion, Justin Bieber is a piece of shit," said Rogen. "He seems like he's obnoxious and ungrateful, insincere, and he puts people's lives at danger with his horrible, horrible behaviour, and overall he acts like a piece of shit."


The "lives at danger" comment may be a reference to Bieber's arrest this year, which will see him face trial on May 5. The singer has pleaded not guilty to charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest and using an expired license after police say he was caught drag racing in Miami Beach. He did not attend hearing at Miami-Dade county court earlier this week (March 10).

The trial date was initially scheduled for March but was postponed after Bieber's lawyers argued in court with several news outlets over whether video images of the singer following his arrest on January 23 should be released. Several videos, including one of the singer giving a urine sample, have been released.

Bieber was arrested for drunken driving after officers stopped him in a rented yellow Lamborghini alongside another driver in a red Ferrari on a main Miami Beach street. Two SUVs had blocked off the road so the singer could race a friend, police said. Bieber initially resisted arrest, swore at police officers and later told them he had consumed alcohol, cannabis and prescription drugs, according to police. He was released on bail.

Earlier this week (March 9), Bieber made an unannounced appearance at SXSW over the weekend.
The pop singer appeared at his manager Scooter Braun Projects Sunday Funday event in Austin, Texas to sing a mash-up of songs that included his track 'Boyfriend', accompanied by the band Rixton.

Last week Justin Bieber criticised his former mentor Usher in a leaked video of his testimony in a court case brought against him by a photographer. Bieber appeared at a court in Miami on March 6 to defend himself in a case brought by Jeffrey Binion. The photographer claims that Bieber ordered four of his bodyguards to forcibly remove the memory card from Binion's camera after he took photos of Bieber outside recording studio ‘The Hit Factory’ in June 2013.

In February, Bieber was charged with assaulting a limousine driver in Toronto late last year.
