The American actor, known for having easy insults in his films, promises to pass on his knowledge in exchange for entries on the electoral roll.
The king of insults is committed to the American presidential election, which will take place on November 3. American actor Samuel L. Jackson promises to provide swearing lessons in 15 languages if 2,500 people register on the electoral rolls, a mandatory step to be able to vote.
“If 2,500 of you click on the link below to register or check your voting status to make sure you’re #VoteVote, I’ll teach you how to swear in 15 different languages,” promises he has 8.5 million followers on Twitter.
Samuel L. Jackson is known for his repeated use of the swear word “motherfucker”, but also for the flowery language of the characters he plays – notably in Pulp Fiction by Quentin Tarantino. Until last May, he held the record for the greatest number of insults pronounced on the screen, a title that he breathed to Jonah Hill last May.
For this initiative for the election, Samuel L. Jackson joined the platform Headcount, which educates young people about the importance of going to the polls. In each American election, many celebrities get involved, sometimes with surprising initiatives. In 2016, Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry went door-to-door at universities to convince students to vote for Hillary Clinton.
