In a recent interview, Samuel L. Jackson went on a tirade full of F-bombs against Trump. (Shocker! A celebrity who hates Trump?)
When asked his opinion on losing fans due to his critical stance on the president, Jackson called Trump supporting fans “motherf–kers” and stated “I don’t give a f–k.”
Apparently Samuel L. Jackson doesn’t care about his fans, so long as his “checks clear.”
Check out the story:
The Western Journal had the following to say:
In a typically profane declaration of his contempt for President Donald Trump, actor Samuel L. Jackson said he is not worried that his F-bomb-laced tirades could hurt his box office appeal.
Jackson was among those who heartily endorsed Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s use of the word “mother—er” to describe Trump.
In a recent interview with Esquire, Jackson said he and others hate Trump the same way many on the other end of the political spectrum hated former President Barack Obama.
Esquire has shared the interview with Jackson:
You’ve been vocal about Trump. A lot of people have their beliefs but are careful about stating them, because they don’t want to jeopardize their career.
I think we feel the same way that all of the motherf--kers that hated Obama felt for eight years. So they said all that sh-t. They put f--king pictures up on the Internet of Michelle sitting with her legs crossed with a d--k hanging down. We feel the same way that they feel or they felt about Obama being the man, even though he wasn’t f--king ruining their lives; he was trying to help their lives.
This motherf--ker is like ruining the planet and all kinds of other crazy shit. And the people think that’s okay. It’s not f--king okay. And if you’re not saying anything, then you’re complicit. And I wouldn’t give a f--k if I was a garbageman and I had a Twitter account; I’d tweet that sh-t out. I’m not thinking about who I am and what my job is when I do that sh-t.
Do you worry about antagonizing fans?
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 a f--k. “You’re an actor. Stick to acting.” “No, motherf--ker. I’m a human being that feels a certain way.” And some of this sh-t does affect me, because if we don’t have health care, sh-t, and my relatives get sick, they’re going to call my rich -ss. 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,” because I know how that sh-t is.
Jackson has, like many other celebrities, used Twitter as a platform for posting Trump-hating comments. Jackson's tweets are especially disrespectful of the president and riddled with curse words.
A couple of the tweets are shared below.
Warning: uncensored foul language ahead.
Though he may not care, many have lost all respect for Samuel L. Jackson after seeing his childish use of language and disregard for his fans' opinions.
