Samuel L. Jackson

DESTROYS News Anchor

I'm Not Laurence Fishburne, YOU MORON!!!

WARNING:
This is the MOST PAINFUL interview we've ever watched -- an L.A. news anchor just mistook Samuel L. Jackson for Laurence Fishburne ... on live TV ... and Sam Jackson completely lost it.

Jackson was sitting for an interview about his new movie "RoboCop" this morning on KTLA -- and for some reason, Entertainment anchor Sam Rubin decided to ask Sam Jackson about his new Super Bowl commercial.

But there's a HUGE problem -- because Sam Jackson did NOT do a Super Bowl commercial this year. Laurence Fishburne did. And that's when Sam Jackson GOES OFF on Rubin.

Rubin scrambles like 90s cable porn ... and desperately tried to apologize ... but Jackson will NOT let him off the hook. It's amazing.



SAM RUBIN

ATTACKS TMZ OVER SAM JACKSON STORY

… TMZ HITS BACK!!!

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 obviously has some type of problem with race. The guy made an innocent mistake. Looks more like Eddie Murhpy .

Can't stand Samuel Jackson, so I'm glad he got knocked down a peg. This is the man who said he only voted for Obama because he's black. Such an idiot. He's white too moron!!

I'm the last person in the world to defend Sam Rubin. But he is a well established entertainment reporter for the past three decades and he knows his stuff. The real issue here is that Jackson knows nothing of being a gentleman, and was very wrong to embarrass Rubin on live television. You don't do that.

To you idiots and to Sam Jackson especially... YOU WERE IN A SUPER BOWL COMMERCIAL. He was in the Captain America Winter Soldier commercial. So hate to defend Sam Rubin, but Sam Jackson's an idiot.

Someone like Jackson losing his sh! T over a harmless confusion yet agreed to be in a sh! T movie like Snakes on a Plane.
