    Michael Moore doesn't plan on taking Donald Trump's upcoming inauguration sitting down... or quietly.

    The outspoken film director tweeted to his followers an online petition encouraging critics of the president-elect to gather in Washington D.C. on Jan 20th and disrupt the Inauguration.

    "Disrupt the Inauguration. The Majority have spoken - by nearly 2.7 million votes and counting!" Moore wrote. "Silence is not an option."

    It is unclear if Moore is involved in the actual planning of the inauguration protests, or if he's simply forwarding the information to his 3.4M Twitter followers. Calls to Moore's representatives were not returned. 

    Appearing on Late Night with Seth Myers Wednesday, Moore made a direct appeal to Trump following reports the President-elect had turned away some opportunities to receive intelligence briefings.

    "With all due respect, Mr. President-elect. On our behalf, you have to pay attention. You have to attend these briefings. This is our country. This is our security. This is our safety. You're horsing around with all this nonsense. And you're not doing your no. 1 job, and the no. 1 job of the president is to make sure that the country is safe."

    Moore added, "And I beg you, seriously, there's not right or left, Republican-Democrat going on here. I'm asking you to do your job for the sake of the people who may end up dead because you didn't do you job. "
