Samuel Jackson Was In Hot Water Over His Trump Tweet, But His Response Is Epic
If any of us know anything about Samuel Jackson, it’s that not only is the brotha a helluva actor, he also has a personal affinity for words that start with ‘mutha’ and end with ‘er’ (or ‘a’…depending on who you ask). With that said, the Hollywood legend has just stirred up the internet with his classic usage of a few choice words, as it pertains to Donald Trump and also to whomever reported Jackson on Twitter.
Jackson’s Tweet That Sparked Mayhem
The other day, Samuel Jackson took to Twitter to do what he does best, speak his mind. While doing so, he challenged Donald Trump’s backing of the NFL’s new policy to ban players from kneeling during the national anthem, in peaceful protest against injustices. Here’s what Jackson tweeted:
“I want Proof, the Muthaf*kker demanding folks stand for the Anthem actually knows the words to the Anthem!!”
I want Proof, the Muthafukker demanding folks stand for the Anthem actually knows the words to the Anthem!!

Following Jackson’s “Muthaf*kker” tweet, someone reported him to Twitter in an attempt to get his account shut down. Fast forward to now and the “Pulp Fiction” OG couldn’t be happier with Twitter’s conclusion to the report. How do we know? Because he shared the results with his millions of Twitter and Instagram followers and let’s just say that the proof is in his epic reaction, peep that out below:
Samuel Jackson: “Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha, woooooooooooo! Gotta catch my breath.#somed*cktriedit”
As y’all can see, Samuel ain’t bothered by the nonsense one bit and we don’t blame him!
In case you haven’t been following the current president, Samuel Jackson’s original tweet was referencing the many times Trump has forgotten the words to pertinent songs he should know. For example, at a previous event, Trump forgot the words to the National Anthem- the song he accuses NFL players of being unpatriotic over. Most recently, Trump also forgot the lyrics to “God Bless America,” during the live ceremony in which he uninvited The Philadelphia Eagles to the White House, after most of the Super Bowl winning team (except approximately 10 of them) had already refused to attend in the first place.
Meanwhile Back At The Ranch…
Meanwhile, Samuel Jackson visited “The Ellen Degeneres Show” on Wednesday (6-6-2018) and had everybody crackin’ up when he revealed that the “Black Panther” producers refused to let him see any parts of ‘Wakanda’…LOL. In the video above, Jackson hilariously explained to Degeneres, that he wanted his Marvel Comics character, “Nick Fury,” to appear in the film, but “Panthers” producers just weren’t tryin’ to hear that:
SJ: “When they were making it, I kept saying, ‘So when do I go to Wakanda?’ And they were [shakes head],” he explained, adding that his Marvel character, Nick Fury, seemed like a perfect fit for the movie. “Can I just walk down the street in Wakanda so they know that I know it’s there? Because I know it’s there. I mean, Nick Fury knows every black thing that’s on the planet, so he’s gotta know about Wakanda.”
Nonetheless, Jackson is out here still on his grind at 69 years young. He’s the HIGHEST GROSSING ACTOR of ALL time and he’s still going! He also took to Instagram to let fans know that he’ll be back on the big screen for “Incredibles 2,” voicing the animated character, “Frozone.” The hit kid’s film will be in theaters on June 15, 2018. Do your thang Samuel Jackson!
