Samuel L Jackson To Trump Supporters: ‘F**k you, Burn Up My Videotapes’
Iconic actor slams president with foul mouth rant
Hollywood actor Samuel L. Jackson has slammed Donald Trump supporters insisting he doesn't care if they no longer see his movies.
The iconic actor attacked the president referring to him using foul language, during an interview with Esquire.
“This motherf**ker is like ruining the planet and all kinds of other crazy s**t,” the 70-year-old actor said.
“And the people think that’s OK. It’s not f**king OK. And if you’re not saying anything, then you’re complicit.”
When Jackson was asked if he was upsetting Trump voters, he responded:
"I know how many motherf**kers hate me. ‘I’m never going to see a Sam Jackson movie again.’ F**k 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--k you. Burn up my videotapes. I don’t give an f**k.”
But his tweet was not embraced by conservatives, not just for being anti-Trump, but for his language.
The tweet was reported, but unsurprisingly, Twitter took no action.
According to a report from cbr.com:
Jackson said partially feels that he is simply giving back the same sort of treatment that conservative posters online gave to Barack and Michelle Obama.
Mostly, though, he believes that Trump is so bad that you have to speak out.
Jackson also addresses critics who suggested actors should stick to acting and not politics.
“No, motherf**ker. I’m a human being that feels a certain way. And some of this s**t does affect me, because if we don’t have health care ... and my relatives get sick, they’re going to call my rich a**,” Jackson continued.
Why is that Hemorrhoid threatening to shut down the Government over a Wall budget? What happened to “and Mexico is gonna pay for it”??!!#ineversaidthat#yesthefuckyoudidmotherfucker— Samuel L. Jackson (@SamuelLJackson) November 26, 2018
I don’t know @SamuelLJackson, to best of my knowledge haven't played golf w/him & think he does too many TV commercials—boring. Not a fan.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 5, 2016
“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 100 some days before I hit ‘send,’ because I know how that s**t is.”
Last year, Fellow Hollywood actor Robert De Niro launched a foul-mouthed rant against Donald Trump during an award ceremony.
While introducing Meryl Streep at the National Board of Review Annual Awards Gala in New York, the Oscar-winning star entered into an anti-Trump meltdown, calling the president a "f**king fool."
Claiming to speak on behalf of "the people," De Niro said the world was "suffering" because of Trump before angrily declaring:
"This f***ing idiot is the President. "It’s The Emperor’s New Clothes – the guy is a f***ing fool."
