This was the moment when Samuel L Jackson roasted a news anchor on live TV in a case of mistaken identity.
Samuel L Jackson was mistaken for Laurence Fishburne by news anchor Sam Rubin of KTLA. This has to be the funniest and most cringe-making interview ever as Samuel tore Sam a new one.
Sam Rubin started the interview by asking Jackson whether he “got a lot of reaction from that Super Bowl commercial.” He was referring to an advert for the new Kia sedan – in which Fishburne reprised his role from The Matrix.
Glorious cringe-inducing hell rained down as Samuel L told the news anchor “We don’t all look alike! We may all be black and famous but we don’t all look alike.”
“You’re as crazy as the people on Twitter.”
“There’s more than one black guy doing a commercial,” he went on. “I’m the ‘What’s in your wallet?’ black guy. He’s the car black guy.
“Morgan Freeman is the other credit card, black guy. You only hear his voice, though, so you probably won’t confuse him with Laurence Fishburne.”
I had to laugh when Rubin tried to change the topic by saying: “Let’s talk about Robocop,” and Samuel said “Oh hell, no.”
Just watch the video my words won’t do the moment justice.
We found another video where Laurence Fishburne talks about being mistaken for Samuel L Jackson. It seems to be a thing that they both have to put up with.
Am I mean for finding this roasting funny or should I be concerned like a few colleagues that the news anchor was a tad bit racist? I can do both. Hit us up in the comments.
