Not all black people look alike.. clearly this reporter didn’t catch that memo..
It’s nothing like settling into Black History Month by confusing Samuel L. Jackson with Laurence Fishburne.
On KTLA in Los Angeles recently things went way left when Samuel L. Jackson was on for a segment to talk about his new movie RoboCop. The host however must have not had enough sleep the night before because he confused Samuel with Laurence Fishburne when he asked him about a Super Bowl commercial that didn’t exist. Samuel immediate read him in front of the world in the funniest and most uncomfortable way possible.
What Super Bowl commercial?[…]See, you’re as crazy as the people on Twitter. I’m not Laurence Fishburne! We don’t all look alike! We may be all black and famous, but we don’t all look alike! You’re the entertainment reporter? You’re the entertainment reporter for this station and you don’t know the difference between me and Laurence Fishburne? There must be a very short line for your job.
Let’s talk about Robocop!
Oh hell no. Really? Really? I’m the other guy. I’m the other one. What’s in your wallet? There’s more than on black guy doing a commercial. 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.
That had to be embarrassing as hell. And it just got way more hilariously awkward from that point forward.
