Samuel L. Jackson

DESTROYS News Anchor

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

2/10/2014 10:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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 Rubin is a clown. His ego is enormous and he genuinely thinks he is buddies with all these celebrities just because he lives in LA. If you watch enough of him you can see that most celebs just tolerate him and some actively make fun of him (Tom Hanks in particular), yet he thinks they love him.

But isn't it racist to assume that the reporter got them mixed up because of their race? I mean it happens with white actors and actresses all the time.

Sam Rubin should have been fired 20 years ago. He is the biggest tool in Hollywood.

Man that was funny although he kind of went off on that poor guy for too long. He's just doing his job people make mistakes. Sam Jackson kind of looks like an ass but it was funny
