Just days after the box office success of Captain Marvel, Samuel L. Jackson wants the whole world to know that he can’t stand conservatives and he doesn’t give a fuck if you don’t like it.
The actor sat down with Esquire this week to let everyone know that he hates President Trump and Mitch McConnel. Jackson says that he hears the people who called him the N-word as a kid in the voices of Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell:
Trump and all those assholes, Mitch McConnell. But they’re the same fucking guys. And when I hear their voices, I hear the same voices. Those twangs where they didn’t specifically call you “nigger,” they said “nigra.” “The nigras.”
There was no doubt about where they stood, that you were never going to be their equal and, if possible, they were going to make sure you never had as much shit as they had. And they were worried about the chasteness of their women, and miscegenation, and not having enough of them, there being more of us than there are of them.
Jackson continued to double down on his hate for President Trump.
“This motherfucker is like ruining the planet and all kinds of other crazy shit and the people think that’s okay. It’s not fucking okay. And if you’re not saying anything, then you’re complicit. I wouldn’t give a fuck if I was a garbageman and I had a Twitter account; I’d tweet that shit out. I’m not thinking about who I am and what my job is when I do that shit.
Finally, Jackson wants it known that he does not care if his words led to people boycotting his films.
I know how many motherfuckers hate me. “I’m never going to see a Sam Jackson movie again.” Fuck 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. Fuck you. Burn up my videotapes. I don’t give a fuck.
“You’re an actor. Stick to acting.” “No, motherfucker. 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. 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’s next major film will be Avengers: Endgame due out April 26, 2019.
