Samuel L. Jackson Says He Didn’t Drop F-Bomb On ‘Saturday Night Live’ [Video]
Samuel L. Jackson has responded to rumors that he dropped the dreaded F-bomb on this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live, according to the Examiner.
Although many viewers claimed to have heard the actor drop the naughty word during the live East Coast broadcast of the long-running sketch comedy show, Jackson says he stopped short of delivering the goods.
“I only said FUH not F—K! K was sposed to cut off da BULLS–T, blew it!!” the actor tweeted. The “K” in question is likely SNL cast member Kenan Thompson.
If you missed last night’s episode, then you’re probably wondering what happened. According to The Wrap, Jackson hosted the episode to help promote Quentin Tarantino’s violent western Django Unchained. During his appearance, the actor participated in a skit with Thompson called “What’s Up with That?”
The joke is pretty simple: Kenan plays a talk show host who constantly interrupts his guests to perform the “What’s Up with That?” theme song. When Jackson was informed that the faux chat program had run out of time, the actor feigned irritation. That’s when the F-bomb allegedly made its appearance.
The camera then cuts to Thompson, who is clearly amused by Jackson’s goof. As the audience laughs, Jackson can be heard saying “bulls**t” in the background.
“Come on Sam,” Kenan laughed. “That costs us money.”
Jackson’s episode of Saturday Night Live featured more than supposed F-bombs. The Boston Globe reports that Alec Baldwin, Tina Fey, Tom Hanks, Kristen Wiig, Carrie Brownstein, and Jimmy Fallon all made appearances on the program this weekend.
Sir Paul McCartney, fresh from his gig with Nirvana, served as the episode’s musical guest.
