If you aren’t a fan of “Snakes on a Plane,” keep it to yourself. At the very least, don’t tag Samuel L. Jackson — the star of the film — in a tweet bashing it, lest you want the “Avengers” actor to come after you.
On April 29, Jackson took notice of a rude tweet about the film and wasted no time responding to it.
In less than 24 hours, Jackson responded to the tweet, defending both the film and his choice to star in it.
“WTF does that even mean??! It’s a cult fave & your claim to fame is….???? For the record, it was a Great Idea!! Those residuals,” he said.
“Snakes on a Plane” might not have won any Oscars, but it did pretty well given its strange premise. According to Box Office Mojo, “Snakes on a Plane” grossed more than $62 million worldwide, which is almost twice its $33 million budget. In 2018, more than a decade after the film’s 2006 premiere, the Washington Post called the movie “a landmark film with an outlandish premise which, beyond all odds, became a cultural phenomenon.”
On Twitter, people couldn’t help but laugh at Chitah’s misfortune.
“How very dare he! It’s a cult classic! How many films have you done since then? It’s certainly not impacted your career!” another user added.
“When Samuel l Jackson is on your case run far run fast. You will not win. You got burnt so bad I can feel the heat here in [the] UK,” a third person remarked.
