Samuel L. Jackson does not 'give a f**k' if Trump supporters don't watch his movies: 'I already cashed that check'
Jackson said Trump is "ruining the planet and all kinds of other crazy s***," and "if you’re not saying anything, then you’re complicit"
Samuel L. Jackson's newest movie 'Captain Marvel' was released in theaters around a week ago, and is doing roaring business. However there are many who have said that they would not be watching any of his movies over his views against US President Donald Trump.
Jackson responded to them in a interview to Esquire, saying that he does not "give a f***" whether Trump supporters see his movies or not.
In the interview published on Tuesday, Jackson got candid about his open contempt for Trump, and said that "if you’re not saying anything, then you’re complicit."
"This motherf***er is like ruining the planet and all kinds of other crazy s***. And the people think that’s OK. It’s not f***ing OK. And if you’re not saying anything, then you’re complicit."
He further added, "I wouldn’t give a f*** if I was a garbageman and I had a Twitter account; I’d tweet that s*** out. I’m not thinking about who I am and what my job is when I do that s***. "
He was then questioned about whether he is concerned or worried about hostile fans to which he replied saying, "I know how many motherf***ers hate me. 'I’m never going to see a Sam Jackson movie again.' F*** 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*** you. Burn up my videotapes. I don’t give a f***," he continued.
"'You’re an actor. Stick to acting.' No, motherf***er. 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, s***, 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 one hundred some days before I hit “send,” because I know how that s*** is," he shared.
Jackson's latest film 'Captain Marvel' released on March 8, and according to reports from comicbook.com, the movie brought in around $69 million in its second weekend, and over $266 million overall.
