Samuel L. Jackson Curses On Saturday Night Live

Submitted by on December 17, 2012 – 10:58 amNo Comment

I believe Samuel L. Jackson. The legendary actor, famous for his hotheaded characters, committed one of the biggest sins of live television when he cursed during an appearance on Saturday Night Live this week. But on Twitter later, Jackson claimed that he’s only half as guilty as everyone thinks.

In the sketch “What Up With That?”, Kenan Thompson plays a talk show host who interrupts his guests (if he even gets to them) after just seconds to burst into song. When Thompson’s character announced that they had run out of time, Jackson (a guest on the “show”), yelled, “What the fuh-”, and then, “This is bullsh*t.”

Jackson later tweeted, ”I only said FUH not F&*K!” And after viewing the video again, I believe that.

Also, the actor admits actually saying the second obscenity, but blames Thompson for letting it happen. “K was sposed to cut off da BULL%^&T, blew it!!” he wrote.”

Jackson becomes perhaps the most memorable person to drop a swear word on the show during its 37 year history. Multiple cast members and crew have had trouble with scenes that substitute a word like “freakin” or “floggin” for the actual f-word, including Jon Lovitz, Paul Schaffer, and most recently, Jenny Slate. In the 80′s, cast member Charles Rocket let an f-bomb drop during the closing good-nights, and it ultimately gave executives an excuse to let him go.

What did you think of Jackson’s appearance?
