Seth Rogen is calling out his fellow celebrities. The 2021 Emmy Awards is among the first few award shows to have returned to normal in-person broadcasts since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.

At the show, few audiences members wore masks or maintained social distancing. Rogen, who spoke on stage early in the evening, made note of the event's lack of safety precautions.

"Let me start by saying there is way too many of us in this little room! What are we doing?" the actor said. "They said this was outdoors! It’s not! They lied to us." The comedian joked that the room they were in was comparable to a "hermetically sealed tin." Seth Rogen joked about the lack of COVID-19 safety protocols at the 2021 Emmy Awards.
