Samuel L. Jackson Debuts Swear-Packed Social Distancing Poem on 'Kimmel' - Watch Here!

Samuel L. Jackson has a message for people during the global health crisis: “Stay the fu*k at home!”

While making an appearance on a home-edition of Jimmy Kimmel Live last night (March 31), the 71-year-old Avengers star encouraged people to practice social distancing and stay home.

Samuel debuted a new spin on the humorous children’s book “Go the Fu*k to Sleep” – both versions written by Adam Mansbach, which he narrated, modifying into a profane public service announcement about the global health crisis.

“People thought that would be the perfect time to bring that back,” Samuel told Kimmel. “I got a call the other day from Adam Mansbach, the guy that wrote the original ‘Go the F**k to Sleep‘, and we talked about what we could do remind people of social distancing and where we are in these times now. So he wrote a new poem, I read it and we want to present it to the public right now.”

The resulting poem has Jackson reading lines like, “Now technically I’m not a doctor / But motherf**ckers listen when I read a poem /So here I am, Sam F**cking Jackson / Imploring you: Keep your ass at home.”

Anthony Mackie, Samuel L. Jackson & Nia Long Debut 'The Banker' in Memphis

Anthony Mackie poses with Nia Long at the premiere of their new movie, The Banker, held at the National Civil Rights Museum on Monday night (March 2) in Memphis, Tenn.

The two actors were joined by co-stars Samuel L. Jackson, Taylor Black, Xen Sams, Bill Kelly and Gralen Bryant Banks for the event.

Inspired by true events, The Banker centers on revolutionary businessmen Bernard Garrett (Mackie) and Joe Morris (Jackson), who devise an audacious and risky plan to take on the racist establishment of the 1960s by helping other African Americans pursue the American dream.

Along with Garrett’s wife Eunice (Long), they train a working class white man, Matt Steiner (Nicholas Hoult), to pose as the rich and privileged face of their burgeoning real estate and banking empire – while Garrett and Morris pose as a janitor and a chauffeur.

Their success ultimately draws the attention of the federal government, which threatens everything they have built.

The Banker will premiere in select theaters on Friday, March 6, with the film heading to Apple TV+ on March 20.

Apple Canceled 'The Banker' Premiere at AFI Fest 2019 for This Reason

The reason behind Apple’s decision cancel the premiere of The Banker has been revealed.

The upcoming movie starring Samuel L. Jackson and Anthony Mackie was set to premiere during closing night of the 2019 AFI Fest, but was canceled on Wednesday (November 20) amid sexual abuse claims against the real-life subject’s son.

Bernard Garrett Jr.‘s half sisters recently shared with Apple that he allegedly sexually molested them over the course of several years when he was a young man living in their home, THR reports.

The sisters, Cynthia and Sheila, made the claim in connection with “separate allegations that the timeline of the film was tweaked in order to leave the girls and their mother out of the story and instead feature Bernard Garrett Sr.’s first wife, even though he had already divorced her by the time of some of the events depicted in the film.”

Apple has declined to comment on the specifics of the sisters’ claims, but released a statement saying, “We purchased The Banker earlier this year as we were moved by the film’s entertaining and educational story about social change and financial literacy. Last week some concerns surrounding the film were brought to our attention. We, along with the filmmakers, need some time to look into these matters and determine the best next steps.”

The film follows Bernard Garrett, a black man, who builds a small financial empire in the 50s and 60s by using a white man as the face of the business.

Bernard later testified before a Senate committee and was sent to prison and is considered instrumental in civil rights legislation involving the banking industry.

The Banker is set for a theatrical release on December 6th before heading to Apple TV+.
