Karma has a way of working everything out, doesn’t it?
Case in point – anti-Trump actor Samuel L. Jackson, who hasn’t been shy about his hatred for our America First President, went on record stating he was happy to lose fans over his anti-Trump rants.
Samuel L. Jackson doesn’t care if supporters of President Trump no longer see his movies.
During an interview with Esquire published this week, the veteran actor trashed the president, referring to him with some unflattering expletives.
“This motherf–ker is like ruining the planet and all kinds of other crazy s–t,” the 70-year-old actor said. “And the people think that’s OK. It’s not f–king OK. And if you’re not saying anything, then you’re complicit.”
When asked if he was worried about antagonizing Trump voters, the “Avengers” star dismissed concerns: “I know how many motherf–kers hate me. ‘I’m never going to see a Sam Jackson movie again.’ F–k I care? If you never went to another movie I did in my life, I’m not going to lose any money. I already cashed that check. F–k you. Burn up my videotapes. I don’t give a f–k.”
Jackson also slammed critics who say he shouldn’t wade into politics and that he should “stick to acting.”
“No, motherf–ker. I’m a human being that feels a certain way. And some of this s–t does affect me, because if we don’t have health care … and my relatives get sick, they’re going to call my rich a–,” Jackson continued. “I want them to have health care. I want them to be able to take care of themselves. This is how I feel. And I count to 100 some days before I hit ‘send,’ because I know how that s–t is.” [Page Six]
Well, looks like Mr. Jackson is getting his wish – because his latest movie just bombed in a big way.
According to Observer.com, Shaft was a world wide flop.
The movie cost about $35 million to make, and only grossed a dismal $16 million world wide.
It’s so bad, as a matter of fact, that the movie “Shaft” is listed as one of the biggest box office flops of 2019.
Worldwide Box Office Gross: $16 million
Budget: $30 million to $35 million
Shaft—the third film with this title despite serving as a pseudo-sequel to the previous two—was released against Men in Black: International and Late Night. While both of those films disappointed in wide release, they proved to be enough to dent Shaft‘s business. The Samuel L. Jackson vehicle grossed just $8.3 million in its debut, far below initial $20 million projections. It fell out of the top-10 entirely in its second weekend with just $3.6 million.
Let’s see if Mr. Jackson still feels like his anti-Trump rants are worth it when he can no longer afford his elite Hollywood lifestyle.
