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.
