Not sure if the reporter deserved this, really excruciating watch.
Keep up, yeah?
Jackson was in the Captain America trailer
you massive racism apologist
suddenly he had a furious jackson going nuts, and didn't know how to say 'no i didn't mean LF'
i mean that actually sounds legit
apologising for it?
Rubin later issued a more formal apology.
"I indicated to Samuel that I'd seen him during the Super Bowl, and he thought that I had confused him with the commercial Laurence Fishburne had done for a car company. Of course a 'Captain America' ad had also run during the Super Bowl, but I immediately felt so dumb, I didn't bring that up -- and he gave me the shellacking that was well deserved," the reporter said.
Jackson is set to appear in the upcoming sequel "Captain America: The Winter Solider."
"I pride myself on the fact -- that unlike a lot of people who do this kind of work -- more often than not, I really do know what I'm talking about. But I didn't 30 minutes ago, and I'm really embarrassed about it, and I very much apologize to Samuel L. Jackson and anyone else who was offended for what was a very amateur mistake," Rubin said.
I really do know what I'm talking about. But I didn't 30 minutes ago, and I'm really embarrassed about it"
he's covering his arse, badly
i think the first para is legit, and the second is his bosses telling him to say he is an idiot because otherwise a whole heap of alcxxk's are getting their goddamn pitchforks out.
i mean: go back and listen to what he says at the start
yep, he says marvel, which makes sense. why on earth did he go "my mistake" when jackson asked him what advert he was talking about?
and they say 'WHAT advert??', your immediate instinct is to assume you fucked up, and immediately say sorry. Because having the person who should know whether or not he was in superbowl half time deny it - especially an a-lister - is going to make you doubt yourself surely?
Or maybe he is just a massive racist buuuuut i dunno.
did you get a lot of reaction for that Superbowl commercial?'
So he didn't even make a mistake at all lol amazing
not realising what the reporter was referring to and assuming he'd got him confused with Laurence Fishburne. Please retweet to raise awareness.
he obviously pooed his pants when he thought he'd made that mistake and if he'd known what he was on about he could've recovered from it very easily, but he floundered and looked off camera to someone who was probably also shitting themself and immediately apologised, which made it look like he had done that.
it would liek it's news back please
and i hope they burn in hell!
