Reporter Mistakes Samuel L. Jackson for Lawrence Fishburne

Screen Shot 2014-02-10 at 5.15.19 PM

When studying journalism, isn’t one of the first things you learn is to check your information for accuracy?  There is a reporter who is going to be ridiculed for life after embarrassing himself during a pretty important interview with a highly signifiant celebrity.

Samuel L. Jackson was on the show to promote his new film, “Robocop,” when the reporter asked him if he got a lot of backlash for “that Super Bowl commercial.”  After being asked the question, Samuel gave a very puzzled look at the man, and then proceeded to ask, “What Super Bowl commercial?”

That’s when the man froze, thought for a second and brought it all back up again.  Samuel had to flat out tell the man, “I’m not Lawrence Fishburne!”  In the video, the reporter is clearly embarrassed, but tries to cover up his embarrassment by acting as if it’s all no big deal.  But he knows that, deep down, he really screwed up.  This is one he won’t be able to live down for quite a while.

Maybe all black men really do look alike.  Notice that as the man is laughing it off, Samuel ain’t smiling.   It’s because this guy just made himself look like an idiot.

    The so call reporter should get down on his knees and thank God Samuel didn’t check him like he would have when he was younger! I know from a very reliable source that Mr. Jackson never took any stuff from any of those white racist folks in Hollywood! Love you Samuel for checking that idiot!

    That goes to show you even though Mr. Jackson is a world famous actor white people see him as just another black face in the movie’s. Malcome X once said ” You can graduate from Harvard and they still will call you a nigger.” Mr. Jackson ripped him a new A__ hole but if the roles were revised and a brother was asking some white actor questions and got wrong he would be fired! Good for you Mr. Jackson by hanging in there dealing with idiot.

    He should have been embarrassed. While I wouldn’t call it racist, I would call it sloppy electronic journalism and hopefully he was reprimanded for his mistake.

      And it didn’t take much because he was a fool! I might have been accepting if it was two obscure black actors who look somewhat alike but Sam is at least 15 years older, has a different body structure and so forth! The bottom line is to check your facts before you open your mouth! I would love to know what Laurence thinks about this!
