In a recent interview, Hollywood actor Samuel L. Jackson, known for his outspoken criticism of President Trump, admonished both the president in a profanity-laden tirade that was directed at not just the president, but his supporters as well.
“This motherf*cker is, like, ruining the planet, and all kinds of other crazy shit,” said Jackson, who went on to call out his colleagues who, in his opinion, were “complicit” by not criticizing Trump enough.
Discussing blowback from alienated fans, Jackson said, “F*ck I care?” adding, “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*ck you.”
The Pulp Fiction actor went on to explain that he feared having to support his relatives, should their healthcare be impacted, noting that if they “get sick, they’re going to call my rich ass.”
From The Hill:
Actor Samuel L. Jackson railed against President Trump in a wide-ranging interview released this week, accusing the president of “ruining the planet” and all “kinds of other shit.”
“This motherf—er is like ruining the planet and all kinds of other crazy shit,” Jackson said asked about his opposition to Trump in an interview with Esquire released Tuesday.
He also criticized those who might be reluctant to voice their opposition because they are worried about their careers, saying “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 shit out,” Jackson said. “I’m not thinking about who I am and what my job is when I do that shit.”
Jackson also shared a message to fans who dislike his views on Trump.
“I know how many motherf—ers hate me. ‘I’m never going to see a Sam Jackson movie again.’ F— I care?” Jackson said. “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 shit does affect me, because if we don’t have health care, shit, and my relatives get sick, they’re going to call my rich ass,” he continued. “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 shit is.”
Jackson has been a vocal critic of Trump since the president took office.
