Samuel L. Jackson earned more than laughs for his recent appearance on "Saturday Night Live."
The actor may have violated network broadcast policy when he played an angrier version of himself during the episode on Dec. 15. During a live skit, the "Pulp Fiction" actor accidentally slipped two curse words.
In a segment with "SNL" cast member Kenan Thompson, the two actors were on a fake talk show called "What Up With That?" Thompson played the host who rudely interrupts guests by singing and dancing instead of interviewing them. When Jackson, who played himself, realized that the talk show is ending without a full interview, the actor got angry and yelled two expletives.
Jackson dropped the "F" bomb followed up with "this is bulls**t!"
When the camera turned to Thompson, he appeared startled and replied, "C'mon Sam. C'mon now, that costs money!" he yelled, which drew laughs from the audience.
Thompson was referring to the Federal Communications Commission's act to fine networks when obscenities are aired on television.
The flub happened due to poor timing, according to Jackson. Moments after the show ended, he explained the mishap on Twitter saying that Thompson was supposed to cut him off as he was about to say a curse word with an eruption, but "blew it!!"
"I only said FUH not FUCK! K was sposed to cut off da BULLSHIT, blew it!! Jackson tweeted.
Jackson's tweet included a picture of himself with a surprised look on his face because Thompson failed to cut him off as planned.
"SNL" does not run on time delay so the live broadcast included Jackson's use of the inappropriate words. Video clips posted online on NBC's website after the show, however, had the offensive words removed.
Samuel L. Jackson is an American actor who has starred in over 100 movies and is considered the highest grossing actor of all time, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
