Samuel L. Jackson Tries to Get a Reporter to Use the “N” Word During Interview
Samuel L. Jackson is known for his one liners, as well as his bombastic personality, and during a recent interview about Django Unchained, he used his most identifiable character traits to needle a reporter about the “N” word.
Reporter Jake Hamilton asked Jackson about Django Unchained‘s unending use of the “N” word, and Jackson acted as if he didn’t know which “N” word the reporter was referencing.
“No? Nobody? None?” Jackson pretended. ”The word would be…”
Hamilton pressed on, telling Jackson he didn’t want to say the actual word, but Jackson pushed Hamilton, goading him: “Try it!”
“We’re not going to have this conversation unless you say it,” Jackson said jokingly, giving the reporter an ultimatum, before asking Hamilton if he wanted to move onto another question.
Once Hamilton moved on, Jackson giggled, causing Hamilton to again insist that he wasn’t going to use the racial slur.
“Oh, come on!” Jackson replied.
That’s when Hamilton asked Jackson to say it, to which Jackson replied,“f*ck no!”
“That’s not the same thing,” he explained, before continuing to goad Hamilton: “Say it!”
In the end, Jackson avoided the question and Hamilton, to his credit, refused to use the “N” word.
Hamilton lamented that it was a great question, to which Jackson replied, “No, it wasn’t…………..It wasn’t a great question if you couldn’t say the word.”
