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!!!!!

Sam Rubin apologized numerous times to Samuel L. Jackson and Jackson was hilarious and cool about it. I was laughing at every jab Jackson was giving to Sam. I think Rubin learned a good lesson to ask who he's talking to prior to opening his mouth. Both men handled the situation very well.

Sam Rubin is a douchebag. He has been around in L.A. for way too long and should be sent to a rural town in Nebraska to retire. TMZ won the verbal war and Sam should just go back to his poor on-air reporting and STFU!

Samuel Jackson is such a jerk for turning an honest mistake into the whole race thing! He must be going to the Al Sharpton's school of over blown hypersensitivity. The man made a mistake get over it!!!

But he was in a Super Bowl Commercial... It was with parents yelling at Samuel L Jackson because their kids watch his movies.... And then he goes off on all the parents for letting their kids watch his movies...

READ THIS and IT SAYS IT ALL… roninxian at 6:53 PM February 10, 2014
We all make mistakes? Sure we do. BUT, we are not all 'professional' journalists/interviewers. Shows me how very little preparation Rubin made for this interview. He didn't even know WHO he was interviewing. Mr. Jackson is right, 'there must be a very short line for that job." Rubin should thank his lucky stars that S.L. Jackson didn't just walk away shaking his head. How amateurish is this interview?
