Gather 'round kids, there's a new celebrity feud going on, and it's about to be motherfu*king crazy.
But actor Samuel L. Jackson, world renowned for perfectly delivering some of the most curse-laden lines in all of cinematic history, is reeling after being dethroned as the most profane actor on screen.
In a surprise upset, a study revealed the honor goes not to Jackson but rather to Jonah Hill.
And when the news was relayed to Jackson during a recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon—well, Jackson was not having it.
Jokingly, of course.
See the moment below.
Or as Jackson put it to Fallon as only Jackson could:
"That's some bullsh*t, man."
Can't blame him. This is a guy who has delivered some of the most memorably cuss-filled lines in all of film.
Who among us does not mouth along in perfect synchronization when Jackson yells "Say 'what' again, I dare you, I double dare you motherfu*ker, say 'what' one more go*da*n time" in Pulp Fiction?
And "I'm sick of these motherfu*king snakes on this motherfu*king plane" is practically the gold standard of profanity.
Worse yet, Jackson isn't even #2, either.
He's in third place, after Leonardo DiCaprio. Jackson couldn't believe it either.
As he put it to Fallon:
"No way, man, come on. I don’t believe that. Someone has miscounted.”
We demand a recount.
The list was compiled in 2020 by website BuzzBingo, which analyzed 3,500 film scripts to figure out who took the top spot. Hill and DiCaprio had 376 and 361 swear words, respectively.
Jackson comes in third, followed by Adam Sandler, Al Pacino, Denzel Washington, Billy Bob Thornton, Seth Rogen, Bradley Cooper and Danny McBride rounding out the top 10.
Apparently Hollywood still isn't ready for women swearing.
Now in Jackson's defense, this is not exactly a scientific approach and a lot can happen in two years. So we choose to believe Jackson has since taken the top spot, as he fu*king should go*da*mit.
On social media, people definitely shared Jackson's sense of injustice.
At least Hill knows his place in the profanity pantheon—when this so-called study first dropped in 2020, he posted on Instagram he was "humbled" to be in the same company as "the great" Samuel L. Jackson.
Hopefully Jackson can forgive him in time.
