Samuel L. Jackson made an unforgettable appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday (March 31).
The legendary actor made his thoughts very clear about people who are needlessly spending time outside and not socially distancing themselves.
After a brief interview, Jackson read from a sequel to the children’s book Go the F**k to Sleep – one that fits the coronavirus pandemic. He claims the book’s author Adam Mansbach recently reached out to him with a new version of his poem, which Samuel L. previously read for the audiobook version.
Similar to Go the F**k to Sleep, the COVID-19 version uses profanity-laden stories to relay a message: “Stay the f**k at home!”
“Stay the f**k at home. Corona is spreading, this s**t is no joke,” Jackson reads in the video segment. “It's no time to work or roam. The way you can fight it is simple my friends, stay the f**k at home. Now technically I’m not a doctor. But m****rf*****s listen when I read a poem. So here I am, Sam F*****g Jackson, imploring you: Keep your ass at home. If you want things to get back to normal, don't panic. Just use your dome. Wash your hands, stop touching your face and stay the f**k at home.”
Samuel L. Jackson is just one of many celebrities advising their fans to stay at home as much as possible and practice social distancing when out and about. Other celebs have donated money and resources to combat the COVID-19 outbreak, including Jay-Z and Rihanna, who recently joined forces to give $2 million in relief.
