Psychology Today has retracted an article by Evolutionary Biologist Dr. Gad Saad, following an editorial review. This review alleges Dr. Saad used terms deems unacceptable by the outlet, such as "parasitic." Dr. Saad is the Author of the International Bestseller, The Parasitic Mind.

Titled "The Moral Hypocrisy of Celebrities – The Case of Seth Rogen," Gad Saad's editorial analysis on the celebrity was among the top five articles on Psychology Today. The concept for the piece was born out of a bizarre yet fascinating Twitter exchange between the "comedian" and Evolutionary Biologist. In this encounter, Rogen exhibited seemingly aggressive and obsessive behaviour on anyone who challenged the narrative that he is indeed a rich and privileged man.

In a few such cases, Rogen can be seen privately messaging random Twitter accounts, demanding to know their genetic lineages. In one other case, Rogen attacked writer Jonathan Kay over a lighthearted joke. Dr. Saad was indeed most privy to Rogen's social media activity and put pen to paper because of it.

Needless to say, such behaviour from an A-List celebrity can be fascinating to witness, especially for an expert like Dr. Gad Saad. Dr. Saad has been a contributor to Psychology Today since 2008 and has written 312 articles.

"I have generated nearly 7 million readers for them but the use of 'parasitic' is simply unacceptable to them.  My book is titled The PARASITIC Mind.  I know the editor-in-chief personally. I know many of the senior editors.  What is transpiring is truly chilling," said Dr. Saad on his Facebook post.

In addition to pulling this latest piece, Psychology Today allegedly also pulled an older article wherein Dr. Saad recounts his experiences testifying to the Canadian Senate on the matter of Bill C-16.

It remains to be seen whether Psychology Today will republish the piece.
