Out of all the celebrities in the world, I would be the least surprised to find out that Samuel L Jackson is a crotchety old fuck. Can you blame him though? The guy’s pushing 70 and has to deal with constant paparazzi and random fans getting up in his personal space without any regard to what HE wants. When you’re late 20’s – early 30’s you can put up with shit like this with grace and calm, but when you’re almost old AF and Samuel L Jackson, fuck off – you’re old. You’re famous. Combine those two and you can basically do whatever you want short of homicide (although robbing a bank still gets a pass).
Then again, if we’re to believe Jackson’s side of the story, he turned down DJ The Fitz’s request for a photo “politely,” although is calling shenanigans:
Yeah dude, forreal – you didn’t get your photo but you got Samuel L Jackson to reply to you on Twitter. How many people can say they’ve done that? Sour grapes still make wine, but Fitz was so goddamned determined to have the last word he made a fucking Facebook video:

Guy needs a hobby that doesn’t include bothering Samuel L Jackson on Twitter.
In the end, Jackson conceded that Fitz had a point – but I’d still be willing to bet that if Fitz tried to take a photo with Jackson again he’d still get shut down just for the sake of one final “Fuck off.”
