Even Samuel L. Jackson can't make reporter say the N-word1/2/2013
Samuel L. Jackson isn't known for self-censorship, but scroll up to minute 13:55 of this "Django Unchained" interview and watch Mr. Cool refuse to say the N-word — or, rather, attempt to strong-arm interviewer Jake Hamilton into breaking network etiquette and uttering it himself. No dice. Kudos to Hamilton for sticking to his guns despite Jackson's terrifying, booming commands. Foul-mouthed Jackson doesn't let us down, though, managing to slip in an alternate expletive or two (he knows we're all thinking it anyway). This clip's been around since mid-December but is now seriously making the rounds and sparking a philosophical, cuss-filled Reddit debate that’s examining the intricacies of everything from racism and the FCC to the awesomeness of Jackson himself.
