Samuel L Jackson Doesn't Care If Trump Supporters Hate Him : 'I’m Not Going to Lose Any Money'

Samuel L. Jackson remains resolute in his criticism of President Donald Trump and has now said he doesn’t care if the president’s supporters hate him.


The “Captain Marvel” star sat down with Esquire Magazine in an interview that was published last week and remained unapologetic about his vocal stance on Trump.



Asked if he wasn’t afraid that his career might be at risk because of his blunt opinions, Jackson, 70, launched into an expletive-laden tirade:

“This [expletive] is like ruining the planet and all kinds of other crazy [expletive]. And the people think that’s okay. It’s not [expletive] okay. And if you’re not saying anything, then you’re complicit.”

“I wouldn’t give a [expletive] if I was a garbageman and I had a Twitter account; I’d tweet that [expletive] out,” he added. “I’m not thinking about who I am and what my job is when I do that [expletive].”



The “Django Unchained” actor maintained his stance when he was asked if he wasn’t worried about offending some of his fans that are Trump supporters.

“I know how many [expletive] hate me. ‘I’m never going to see a Sam Jackson movie again.’ [expletive] 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. [expletive] you. Burn up my videotapes. I don’t give a [expletive].”



He further slammed folks who berate him for being vocal about his political views.

“I’m a human being that feels a certain way, and some of this [expletive] does affect me,” said Jackson. “Because if we don’t have health care and my relatives get sick, they’re going to call my rich [expletive].”

“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 [expletive] is.”



Earlier this month, Jackson compared Trump to a slave plantation owner after the latter condemned Spike Lee’s Oscars acceptance speech.

Jackson presented the “Best Director” Academy award that was won by Spike Lee for his film, “BlacKkKlansman,” and in his speech, the filmmaker condemned slavery and racism while urging everyone to ‘make the moral choice between love versus hate” and “do the right thing.”

For some reason, Trump summed up Lee’s speech as a “racist hit” and said as much in a tweet where he also bragged about being the president “who has done more for African Americans. …than almost any other [president!]”

Reacting to the situation sometime later, Jackson described the president as “too sensitive” and said, “he’s got a big plantation.”
