Make no confusion; Samuel L. Jackson does not want to be mistaken for actor Laurence Fishburne. The actor lashed out at KTLA entertainment reporter Sam Rubin for mixing him up with The Matrix star.
When Rubin asked Jackson about the reaction he received about his Super Bowl commercial, Jackson was utterly confused. He then caught on that Rubin was referring to Fishburne’s commercial.
“You’re as crazy as the people on Twitter!” said Jackson, TheWrap reports. “I’m not Laurence Fishburne! We don’t all look alike!”
He then told Rubin “You’re the entertainment reporter for this station and you don’t know the difference between me and Laurence Fishburne? There must be a very short line for your job.”
TMZ reports Rubin profusely apologizes, telling him he made a “big mistake” but Jackson continued to lay into him.
The Bustle reports Jackson has made headlines in the past about going after reporters, mainly when he refused to answer a question about the “n-word” unless the person interviewing him said the entire word.
