Did Samuel L Jackson Drop F-Bomb On Saturday Night Live? (Video)

Well, the answer is yes and no, really. Django Unchained star Samuel L Jackson appeared on the comedy show this past weekend to promote Quentin Tarantino's latest movie, but things nearly went oh so wrong.

Pretending to be annoyed at being interrupted during the mock talk show 'What's Up With That?', Jackson half uttered an F-bomb, before stopping himself. Playing the host of the game, comedian Kenan Thompson looked startled, cracked a smile and said, "C'mon, Sam. That costs money!" to the delight of the live studio audience. Moments after the show had aired, Jackson attempted to explain himself on Twitter "I only said FUH," he insisted, before tweeting a photograph of himself looking mortified. Cursing on the comedy show is a rarity, with Jenny Slate being the last cast member to swear nearly four years ago. On that occasion she accidentally said f*cking instead of freaking. Hopefully Sam won't be repeating the stunt when he appears on the Today Show on Monday (December 17, 2012). Now that would be embarrassing. 

His new movie Django Unchained hits theaters in the U.S. this weekend, and still boasts a perfect 100% score on review aggregating site Rotten Tomatoes.
