Outspoken and frequently foul-mouthed actor Samuel L. Jackson recently took to Twitter to lament the fact that Tropical Storm Isaac will likely hit the coast of New Orleans instead of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida.
“Unfair Sh*t: GOP spared by Issac [sic]! NOLA prolly F**ked Again! Not understanding God’s plan!” Jackson wrote Monday afternoon.
Several of Jackson’s followers slammed his unabashedly partisan remarks as distasteful.
Still, according to Entertainment Weekly, Jackson’s “unfair” tweet has been “retweeted 983 times and marked as a favorite 236 times as of this morning.”
In response to the backlash, Jackson wrote: “Daayum! Poked a Hornets nest, hunh?”
“Apologies to God, Tampa, da GOP& Isaac(sp)! Who played the Race card?!” he added. “Whoooo! A lotta sh*t stirred into a Bullsh*t tweet! Politics & Religion get MUFREPUBLICANS heated!”
