Samuel L. Jackson recently made remarks that did not sit well with his followers or even those on the other side. He made comments that bordered on homophobia and he is now trending for all the wrong reasons.


Lately, Twitter has become the preferred platform for celebrities settling scores and Samuel L. Jackson is one of those that have left their mark. Lately, he got into trouble for tweeting about Trump in a way that sounded homophobic. His tweet, “Must have been a party at The White House, Mitch, Paul, Rudy & others were spotted wearing knee pads & carrying these lined up outside. Happy Birthday” was all rage on the internet last week. He was wishing the president a happy birthday and followed the message with an attachment of a particular mint flavor.


The actor has been a vocal critic of Trump and that has been okay for the longest time until now. Most Twitter users felt that message had crossed the line and was targeted at the LGBT community. Users tagged Capital One on their comments, being the company that Jackson does commercials with.


"White guy gets fired from his job for anti-Trump cartoon but this is okay? Capital One should fire him for this," one person noted while another said; "[Capital One] time to pull your commercials with this homophobe."

Jackson is not the only celebrity who has called Trump out this week. Robert De Niro, when introducing a live Bruce Springsteen performance at the Tony Awards expressed his displeasure at the current administration by saying; "I'm going to say one thing, f— Trump. It's no longer down with Trump, it's f— Trump."

Jackson is yet to issue an apology or explain the tweet, but he did note that the contents were reported. His comment; “they just keep trying…” also did irk some people.
