Samuel L. Jackson took a unique approach to discussing the controversy surrounding Quentin Tarantino’s new film “Django Unchained.”
The movie, which has been criticized for its portrayal of slavery, also took heat for its use of the n-word, and when interviewer Jake Hamilton attempted to ask the actor about the n-word controversy he got more drama than he expected.
“No? Nobody? None? The word would be?” Jackson said, trying to get Hamilton to say the word.
When Hamilton answered that he was not comfortable saying it, Jackson tried harder, refusing to answer the question unless Hamilton obliged.
They argued over it for a few moments before moving on to another question.
