Samuel L. Jackson: 'Unfair' Hurricane Isaac Avoid GOP Convention And Aimed For NOLA

Posted: Updated:

Samuel L. Jackson is known for his profantiy-laden and erratic style of tweeting, a habit that placed him squarely in the eye of a storm Monday night. Seemingly tweeting off the cuff, the "Pulp Fiction" actor said that it was "unfair" that Hurricane Isaac was avoiding Tampa -- where the Republican National Convention is currently being held -- and might move toward New Orleans.

Here's the full tweet:

Samuel L. Jackson
Unfair Shit: GOP spared by Issac ! NOLA prolly Fucked Again! Not understanding God's plan!

Jackson then backed off, offering the following apologies and recommendations that those in the storm's path obey authorities:

Samuel L. Jackson
Whoooo! A lotta shit stirred into a Bullshit tweet! Politics & Religion get MUHFREPUBLICANS heated!

Samuel L. Jackson
Seriously, leave the path of Danger if you're asked. Be Safe & be Smart wherever you are & whatever your Politics!

Perhaps surprised by the vigor of the responses to his earlier tweets, Jackson moved to a new topic: Mitt Romney.

Samuel L. Jackson
If U had a direct line to Mitt, like U do to me, what would you say? Seeking knowledge not Vitriol!

As The Hill notes, Isaac has prompted some harsh responses from public figures. Rush Limbaugh argued that warnings about the storm were simply attempts (on behalf of the Obama administration) to deflect attention away from the Republican National Convention.
