Samuel L Jackson receives flak for perceived homophobic birthday tweet for Donald Trump
Samuel L Jackson has been receiving flak for what is being seen as an anti-gay tweet by the legendary actor.
The Pulp Fiction actor tweeted a happy birthday message to President Donald Trump on Friday (15 June). In the tweet he wrote, "Must have been a party at The White House, Mitch, Paul, Rudy & others were spotted wearing knee pads & carrying these lined up outside. Happy Birthday". With the tweet was attached a picture of something called After Dick Mints with the tagline 'Going Down?'.

Following this, Samuel L Jackson received a barrage messages and tweets condemning his tweet. Some didn't get the humor in it, and others called it outright homophobic.
Its amazing how so many of the liberals support this obviously anti gay tweet, but as soon as someone brings up how Samuel is being antigay, his supports jump down their throat. Typical liberal logic. — Stephen Smith (@steve15522) June 16, 2018
