Samuel L Jackson Shares Report From Twitter After Appearing To Troll Trump
Earlier this week, US President Donald Trump came under fire after it looked like he didn't know the words to 'God Bless America' during a ceremony he held honouring the American flag - singing the first two lines before trailing off and nodding along awkwardly and silently.
He was criticised for this not only because of all the people in the world you'd expect to know the words to such a patriotic song, it'd be the President, but also because it's caught up in the recent wave of NFL protests.
The #TakeAKnee movement has seen players take a knee during the anthem to speak out against police brutality in the States, but Trump has implied that he disagrees with their actions - having reportedly disinvited members of the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House.
Even Samuel L Jackson's getting involved, after sending out a tweet that seemed to call out the President out, and asking for 'proof' that he knew the words.
I want Proof, the Muthafukker demanding folks stand for the Anthem actually knows the words to the Anthem!!

Now the Pulp Fiction actor has revealed that the tweet was reported by someone, sharing a screenshot of the report from Twitter with the caption: "Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha, woooooooooooo! Gotta catch my breath. #somedicktriedit"
The message from Twitter explained that while the reported tweet was investigated, no one could identify any violations of the Twitter Rules or applicable law.
"Accordingly, we have not taken any action this time," the message concluded.
Jackson has been publicly critical of Trump before, having previously gone in on his proposal to arm American teachers in the wake of the Parkland school schooting.
The actor didn't mince his words over Trump's proposal to start arming teachers and other school employeesso they can tackle the next mass shooter.
He tweeted: "Can someone that's been in a Gunfight tell that Muthafukka that's Never been in a Gunfight, the flaws of his Arm The Teachers plan??!!"
And Jackson isn't the only high profile celeb to call Trump out, either - with Robert De Niro announcing that he'd be banning the President from his restaurants.
"I don't care what he likes. If he walked into a restaurant I was in - I'd walk out," he told the MailOnline.
This shouldn't really come as a surprise to anyone who's been keeping up with the actor's thoughts on the American President - which he certainly made clear during the 2016 election.
