We all know that Hollywood celebrities live in their own bubbles that in no way is based in reality.
They thrive on outrage even if it means alienating a good amount of their fan base.
And Samuel L. Jackson is the latest who dropped a bomb on President Trump supporters.
Believe it or not, Samuel L. Jackson is one of the biggest movie stars of all time.
Jackson and Harrison Ford go back and forth as being the highest gross actor – as in the movies that they’ve starred in have generated the most amount of money of all time.
For instance, Jackson play Nick Fury in many Marvel movies but also had pivotal roles in Star Wars Episodes I, II, and III, and Jurassic Park.
He also has a huge following that he just claimed he doesn’t care about offending – President Trump’s supporters.
In an interview with Esquire this week, coming off the massive success of Captain Marvel, Jackson candidly said, “This motherf–ker is like ruining the planet and all kinds of other crazy sh-t. And the people think that’s OK. It’s not f–king OK. And if you’re not saying anything, then you’re complicit.”
Yes, you’re complicit in President Trump’s destruction of planet Earth apparently. Presumably, he’s referring to Global Warming and that somehow decades of worldwide human-causing fossil fuel burning is somehow all Trump’s fault.
Trump was wise to pull out of the disastrous Paris Accord because the United States was overpaying the fair share of the agreement. It was a waste of money especially when you consider – by liberals’ definition of Global Warming – that China and India are the biggest causes and they made almost zero plans to confront the issue.
Although, Jackson might not have been exclusively talking about Trump ruining the “planet” through “Global Warming,” it could also be through his “rhetoric.”
And Jackson doesn’t care who his comments offend like the 60 million people who voted for him in 2016.
He continued, “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 fuck.”
He clearly woke up on the wrong side of the bed that morning.
Jackson is also not aware of the simple fact that African American unemployment is at an all-time low under Trump’s guidance – something former President Obama never did for the country.
But he’s either willfully ignorant or doesn’t care about African American unemployment under Democratic rule. Why would he care? Jackson is wealthy.
And he had the audacity to say, “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 … and my relatives get sick, they’re going to call my rich ass. 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 sh-t is.”
His cognitive dissonance is almost laughable if it wasn’t so painfully embarrassing. He’s extremely wealthy and his first reaction is to let the federal government help you before he does. What a joke.
Make no mistake; Jackson lives in that Hollywood bubble.
