LOS ANGELES, July 16 (UPI) -- Jason Segel says burrito lovers caused him to quit Twitter.

The 34-year-old actor addressed the incident Tuesday on The Late Show with David Letterman. Segel revealed he abandoned his account after burrito fans attacked him for declaring sandwiches superior in a tweet.

"It was 2 a.m. and I was hungry," the star recalled. "I had a choice between a burrito and a sandwich. I chose to make a sandwich. It was delightful! That was a fantastic sandwich."

"I innocently tweeted, 'Sandwiches are more diverse than burritos,'" he continued. "For the next like, day and a half, there was a firestorm debate. [People said] 'You're an idiot! You don't know about burritos!' And I said, 'I do know about burritos... if they get too diverse, they're a wrap!'"

Segel said he would pick a sandwich over a burrito "100 percent of the time," but had to lay off food in order to lose weight for his new movie, Sex Tape. The actor appears naked during the feature, and the film marks co-star Cameron Diaz's first on-screen nude scene. The actors star as a married couple with children who make a sex tape to spice up their relationship.

"Cameron Diaz is incredibly physically attractive -- I'm sure you've noticed -- and she's lovely in every other way," Segel lauded. "I didn't want the audience to be able to look at a poster or the movie and think, 'I think they're not having sex because he's a fatass.'"

Sex Tape opens in theaters July 18. Segel said his favorite sandwich is a BLT, and he will next appear in The End of the Tour by director James Ponsoldt (The Spectacular Now).
