Veteran Hollywood actor, Samuel L. Jackson, has lambasted those who hate him based on his political affiliations, saying he doesn’t care if they never go see any of his movies again.
Jackson said this in an expletive-laden interview with Esquire.
The 70-year-old has had successful roles in successful films such as Pulp Fiction, Snakes on a Plane, The Avengers, Shaft and so many others. And looking back, he tells ‘haters’ he has already cashed the cheque.
“I know how many motherf***ers hate me,” the Oscar-nominated star told Esquire in a new interview.
“‘I’m never going to see a Sam Jackson movie again.’ F*** I care? If you never went to another movie I did in my life, I’m not going to lose any money. I already cashed that check. F*** you. Burn up my videotapes. I don’t give a f***. ‘You’re an actor. Stick to acting.’ No, motherf***er. I’m a human being that feels a certain way.
“And some of this s*** does affect me, because if we don’t have health care, s***, and my relatives get sick, they’re going to call my rich ass,” Jackson said. “I want them to have health care. I want them to be able to take care of themselves. This is how I feel. And I count to one hundred some days before I hit ‘send,’ [on social media] because I know how that s*** is.”
Jackson has more than 7.8 million followers on Twitter, where he’s been vocal about his opinions.
“I think we feel the same way that all of the motherf***ers that hated Obama felt for eight years. So they said all that s***,” said Jackson, who grew up in the segregated South.
“They put f***ing pictures up on the internet of [First Lady] Michelle [Obama] sitting with her legs crossed with a d*** hanging down. We feel the same way that they feel or they felt about Obama being the man, even though he wasn’t f***ing ruining their lives; he was trying to help their lives.”
Trump, Jackson said, is
“ruining the planet and all kinds of other crazy s***. And the people think that’s OK. It’s not f***ing OK. And if you’re not saying anything, then you’re complicit. And I wouldn’t give a f*** if I was a garbageman and I had a Twitter account; I’d tweet that s*** out. I’m not thinking about who I am and what my job is when I do that s***.”
