Actor Samuel Jackson has recently come under attack by small groups claiming that they no longer plan on seeing any of his future movies, in response to the Hollywood icon’s revelation that he is opposed to U.S. President Donald Trump.
So while some expected the actor to revise his statements, he has done the exact opposite so far.
According to Jackson, he does not care at all if he loses any of his fans over his stance towards Mr. Trump.
He went on to say even more negative things about the former reality TV star, accusing him of acting like he runs the world, and also pointing some fingers towards Trump’s supporter base.
Jackson seems disappointed in the fact that so many people agree with Trump’s world view, and he also spoke out against people who are against him but are sitting idly and doing nothing.
Jackson even went as far as to antagonize those who had threatened to boycott his films, daring them to burn all tapes they have of his previous work.
He stated: "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."
He also mocked the idea that he would be personally affected by a boycott, considering that his paycheck would already be paid in full before the movie is even out.
The actor has joined the ranks of many prominent figures who have decided to take a public stance against Mr. Trump and his policies.
Jackson also revealed: "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–. 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."
The president started his run on a strong note, but he has been seeing a sharp decline in support across some groups of voters in recent months.
Many are speculating that his chances of winning a second term are very slim at this point.
Do you think Jackson is right or wrong for dismissing some of his old fans?
