Samuel L. Jackson 'celebrates Israel' in selfie, takes flak
It is unclear whether the actor was actively partaking in the festivities or merely passing by, but, either way, his tidbit of Twitter-love didn't go unnoticed.
Samuel L. Jackson sent some of his fans into a tizzy on Sunday when he tweeted a selfie with the 50th annual Celebrate Israel Parade in New York City in the background.
It was unclear whether the actor was actively partaking in the festivities or merely passing by in a trigger-happy selfie mood, but, either way, his pictorial contribution to the festivities did not go unnoticed by many of his Twitter followers, and some didn't seem too pleased with his choice to rejoice.
Here is a small sampling of the various conversations that popped up on his page quicker than you can say Ezekiel 25:17. All of it, that is.
