UPDATE: Eisenberg has clarified his comment, saying, "Maybe on some cellular memory level, that's the only thing that seems like an equivalent social experience. Even if they're saying nice things, just being shouted at by thousands of people, it's horrifying. I of course was using hyperbole to describe the sensory overload I experienced. I sometimes do employ that. I'm a normal person who has normal sensory experiences, so Comic-Con was very overwhelming for me. That said, it was really an honor to be on that end of such jubilation. That people are excited about it in that way is unheard of and thrilling."

Original post follows below:

Get your cringe face ready, you're gonna need it for this one.

When asked about his experience at San Diego Comic Con, Jesse Eisenberg said attending was akin to genocide:

"It is like being screamed at by thousands of people. I don't know what the experience is throughout history, probably some kind of genocide. I can't think of anything that's equivalent."

Attending Comic Con is certainly hard on celebrities; it can't be easy being screamed at and accosted by fans, but genocide? What?

This isn't the first time Eisenberg has made headlines for his behavior in interviews, either. In 2013 he developed a reputation as a jerk after being insufferably rude in an interview for the film Now You See Me:

Cringe, cringe everywhere.

Comic Con sure has come a long way from the comic book and superhero focused gathering it once was. Which film featured at SDCC are you most excited to see?

Childhood ruined or childhood enhanced? You tell me! These cosplayers are taking crossover cosplay to new heights combining Disney Princesses with Slave Leia, who I suppose is technically a Disney Princess herself!

Chloe Bennet and Clark Gregg (Agents of SHIELD) took on Hayley Atwell and James Darcy (Agent Carter) in an All-Marvel lip sync battle via the app DubSmash. All through out SDCC, these two casts went toe to toe. Atwell/Darcy even found Chloe Bennet's international pop single, but the SHIELD crew came out on top.

Step aside Captain America, this was the real Civil War.
