At the time, Cruz's grievance was slapped back by Elwes and the two are at it again.
This comes after a clip of Cruz from his podcast went viral. In the clip, the 50-year-old attempted to show off his knowledge of pop culture by comparing 'rabid environmentalists' and 'the Left' to the genocidal supervillain Thanos from The Avengers.
His bizarre analogy was roasted on social media as it didn't really make much sense at all. Those adding to the mockery included Elwes who asked Cruz "how does it feel to know that not only the entire cast and crew of your favourite movie The Princess Bride but almost the whole entire industry, have nothing but rabid contempt for you?" He also added in some choice references to the film to add further insult to injury.
