Samuel L. Jackson Takes To Twitter To Slam Film Critic That Dissed “The Avengers”
BREAKING NEWS! SAMUEL L. JACSON HAS A TWITTER!! Oh, That’s not what you came here for? Ok, excuse me. Add a cuss word or two, stir an angry movie critic in the mix and Wah-Lah!!! Mad black actor on Twitter!
The Avengers may be getting pretty good reviews from critics around the country, but to anyone looking to disagree with the masses, we suggest you think again. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NY Times film critic, AO Scott, recently wrote a negative review for The Avengers for the publication, which gained the fury (pun fully intended) of Samuel L. Jackson. This is what Jackson had to say on his Twitter account earlier today:
#Avengers fans,NY Times critic AO Scott needs a new job! Let’s help him find one! One he can ACTUALLY do!
After that, Twitter user @thefilmnest resonded:
Disappointed to hear @SamuelLJackson respond irrationally to negative review of #Avengers. People aren’t entitled to their own opinion?
Jackson then responded to @thefilmnest’s defense of Scott by saying:
That is My Opinion! @TheFilmNest & what’s irrational about it? They aren’t going to fire his jaundiced ass & You & I Know It!
We’re not entirely convinced that Jackson knows exactly what jaundiced means, but it’s obvious that he takes his role as Nick Fury very seriously. We never doubt Sam Jackson when it comes to a fight; even if that fight occurs via social networking.
