Samuel L - Samuel L. Jackson Attacks Comedian For Django Unchained Criticism

Samuel L. Jackson has taken aim at U.S. Tv talk show host W. Kamau Bell for criticising his movie Django Unchained, insisting the outspoken African-American pundit isn't qualified to make the remarks he did about writer/director Quentin Tarantino's use of the n-word in the film.

Bell used a segment on his show Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell to slam Tarantino for his use of the racial slur, and now Jackson is firing back in a new Playboy interview, insisting the young Tv personality "did not understand the movie" and "did not live through the era".

The actor says, "He's (Bell) a young black man with nappy hair and very dark skin, but he also has a very white wife and an interracial child. You can't tell me you know what people in the South did if you never spent time down there.

"He can say there had to be words Quentin could use other than n**ger. Well, what are they?

"These 20-somethings can't turn around and tell me the word n**ger is f**cked up in Django yet still listen to Jay Z or whoever else say 'n**ger, n**ger, n**ger' throughout the music they listen to (saying), 'Oh, that's Ok because that's dope, that's down, we all right with that'. Bulls**t. You can't have it one way and not the other.

"Saying Tarantino said 'n**ger' too many times is like complaining they said 'k*ke' too many times in a movie about Nazis."
