*Oh that Sam Jackson. He’s such a provocateur.
In his latest adventure of pissing on, er, off Republicans, the actor took to Twitter to tell the world how disappointed he is that Tropical Storm Issac has shifted it’s trajectory from Tampa and the Republican National Convention to New Orleans, which is still recovering from the knock out punch of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, reports Entertainment Weekly:
“Unfair Sh–: GOP spared by Issac [sic]! NOLA prolly F–ed Again! Not understanding God’s plan!” Jackson wrote Monday afternoon, without obscuring the expletives. The reaction was swift and hyperbole filled:
“I’ve had it with these motherf–ing racist Democrats on this motherf–ing Twitter,” user @LastBrainLeft wrote, adding, “#killyourself.”
Others echoed his sentiments, or were angry that Jackson would wish ill on an entire city simply because of a political event held there.
Then again, hundreds of Twitter users also seemed to agree with the Oscar nominee’s message — the “unfair” tweet has been retweeted 983 times and marked as a favorite 236 times as of this morning.
It seems Jackson realized he may have gone a little to far and did some mea culpa tweets … kinda.
