Samuel L Jackson Responds Amid Backlash Over Donald Trump Birthday Tweet

Samuel L. Jackson has issued a response to those who were offended by his tweet on Donald Trump‘s birthday last week.

“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,” Samuel tweeted, along with a photo of a package of mints called, “After Dick Mints.”

Some Twitter users were offended and claimed Samuel was gay shaming, including Firefly actor Adam Baldwin, who tweeted (and later deleted), “Gay shaming?”

Samuel took to Instagram on Sunday (June 17) to post Twitter’s response, which read, “We have investigated the reported content and could not identify any violations of the Twitter Rules or applicable law. Accordingly, we have not taken any action at this time.”

He captioned the photo of Twitter’s response with, “they just keep tryin’” and “Hahahahahahahhahahaah.”

    It’s absolutely “gay shaming”/a homophobic joke (an unfunny, unoriginal one at that) but I find it pathetic and abhorrent that rightwingers like Adam Baldwin only seem to care about the LGBTQ community when a Democrat is the one making ignorant comments. Like, don’t pretend to care about how people treat or talk about gay people if you’re a Republican/Tr*mp supporter, full stop.
