Sam Rubin

Attacks TMZ Over Sam Jackson Story

... TMZ Hits Back!!!

2/10/2014 11:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Sam Rubin is not having a good day ... and it just got worse.

Hours after the KTLA reporter got his ass REAMED by Samuel L. Jackson for mistaking him for Laurence Fishburne during a live interview, he tried to take TMZ to task for the way we covered the story.

Problems is, TMZ doesn't like being taken to task ... especially when we're right.

That's when Evan stepped in and engaged Rubin in an enlightening civil discussion about their respectful disagreements ... just kidding ... THEY WENT OFF ON EACH OTHER!!!!!

It was all out war on "TMZ Live" .... ya gotta check out the clip!!!!!

So that's Laurence Fishburne doing the new Capitol One ad, I get it now.

I watch KTLA 5 every morning and I believe that Sam was NOT referring to the Fishburn commercial but the American Movie trailer and Sam Jackson accused him of confusing him with Fishburn and that commercial, Anyway, Rubin did apologize a few times and does feel bad about the mix up. But Jackson kept on about it, unnecessarily. Jackson needs to contact Rubin and tell him he was ribbing him, its not anything too horrific to be so angry over. As for Evan , get some anger management bro! Yes he did say THOSE people have people, meaning 'actors', not black people. Stop trying ,to make this a racist issue.

Sam acts like TMZ is a sub-division of Channel 5.

Like it's the boss calling.

Evan was right to correct Sam.

From now on Sam demurely reports to Evan.

As Sam said, "the blessing and burden of live TV". Well, it seems to me that for Sam it's more a burden, a blessing for him, if not a salvation, would probably be writing articles in a weekly magazin.

I think Mr. Jackson is really into the race thing right not the way was saying we all look alike. I like his acting but damn did he really need to pull that card out of the deck.

Sam has always been a name throwing wannabe important Hollywood guy. He's nothing more than a love sick pup tagging along the heels of actors and the likes. Good to see his ass handed to him. What an idiot!

If I was a producer I woulda turned this into all-out war.

TMZ vs. Channel 5.

Harvey and Sam MF'ing one another.

Missed a big ratings opportunity behind this.

Sam shouldn't have apologized in the first place.

He didn't do anything wrong.

Had he got offended, ripped off his jacket, rolled up Sam's sleeves, etc.

Might have been a good one.

It's boring for Sam (or anyone) to have an actor come on and to plug a movie -

Channel 5's doing SLJ a favor in the first place.

So for SLJ to go on and on shows bad taste.

HOW DARE YOU plays about as well as DON'T YOU KNOW WHO I AM.

Next time take it fifteen steps further.

Which one was in PULP FICTION, by the way?

It's become obvious that Sam Rubin is a complete racist.

Thinks it's still about Amos n Andy.

... it is, but ...

Interesting to see Sam interview Buckwheat.

Its good that Sam stepped up. Not sure about his disdain for TMZ. i) You messed up and you owned it. At that point you should have just walked away Sam. 2) To lash out at TMZ and EVAN was distasteful and classless. TMZ is a breaking news organization. What you fail to realize is that you are a "Hollywood" reporter on KTLA. Lets compare followers on social media and see who wins. <3 Anna oh and PS. GO TEAM EVAN!!

I'm not a Sam Rubin fan at all....but this is stupid. Rubin asked about the "Super Bowl Commercial". Jackson was in the commercial for Capt. America: The Winter Soldier. Jackson asks "What commercial?" All Rubin had to do was say "The Captain America commercial". Instead, he floundered. If he was a professional (along with his producers in his ear), this wouldn't have happened. Don't make this about race...oh, wait - Jackson already did that!
