Enough is enough! Samuel L. Jackson has had it with these monkey-fighting hurricanes on this Monday-to-Friday Gulf Coast. The outspoken star took to his Twitter page yesterday to air his disappointment about Tropical Storm Isaac’s shift toward New Orleans — and away from Tampa Bay, home of this week’s Republican National Convention. And predictably, his words have rustled a few conservative feathers.
“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.
