Not Available Lead

Samuel L. Jackson put a demanding fan in his place over the weekend, once again proving the general annoyances involved with being one of the biggest movie stars in the world. After the confirmed legend declined a fan's request for a photo, the fan—a radio DJ—took to Twitter to outline his apparent frustrations.

A man whose presumed legal name is The Fitz called the Hateful Eight star a "complete dick" and "an arrogant punk" after the photo was refused, prompting Samuel L. Jackson himself to intervene and set the record straight:

I refused the photo politely @FollowFITZ then you spazzed out! Learn to say Please & Fuck You! Thanks for the Whitney snitch!!

— Samuel L. Jackson (@SamuelLJackson) April 17, 2016

I said, thanks but no @FollowFITZ, you said Aww C'mon, I'm a big fan, me, sorry, you, I watch all your movies but not anymore!

— Samuel L. Jackson (@SamuelLJackson) April 17, 2016

Now @FollowFITZ, do you see Please anywhere in that exchange? You saw it your way, I see it mine. Stop whining, it's over!

— Samuel L. Jackson (@SamuelLJackson) April 17, 2016

Damn. No please? Fitz then hit Facebook with a nine-minute video breaking down the encounter and his inspiration behind, you know, turning the whole thing into a tweetstorm. "If you're going to be told 'F you' on Twitter by anybody, it's awesome if it's done by Samuel L. Jackson," Fitz said in a front of a background emblazoned with Jackson's face and the alleged quote "I'm a fan of me too."

In all fairness, why the hell wouldn'tSamuel L. Jackson be a big fan of himself? After apparently watching the impassioned footage, Jackson hit Fitz back on Twitter with what appears to be somewhat of a truce:

You're right @FollowFITZ, I watched. There's a lot of folks that share your experience w/ me & tons of others just the opposite! Still a Fan

Thus Fitz v Jackson, though brief in its battle, teaches an important social message: No photos please.
