Tough-talking actor Samuel L. Jackson wished President Donald Trump a happy birthday on Friday, but the Twitterverse took exception to the perceived anti-gay slurs in the message and laid their vengeance upon him.
Jackson’s tweet: “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.”
The tweet included an image of a product called “After Dick Mints” with the tagline “Going down?”
Actor Adam Baldwin of the late, lamented TV show Firefly asked, “Gay shaming?” He later removed the tweet. Another user directed at tweet at Capital One, asking the credit card company whether they endorse the language from a spokesperson.
