What happens when you're rude to Samuel L. Jackson

SAMUEL L. Jackson refused to take a photo with a fan because he didn't say please.

The 'Hateful Eight' star was slammed on Twitter by a DJ named Fitz for declining his request for a selfie, but the 67-year-old star then hit back to crticise the radio host for his lack of manners.

Fitz tweeted at the weekend: "That moment when you meet one of your favorite actors & they are a COMPLETE D**K!!!!!!!!!

"What an arrogant PUNK! Right @SamuelLJackson ????(sic)"

In response, the actor posted: "I refused the photo politely @FollowFITZ then you spazzed out!.

"Learn to say Please & F**k you! Thanks for the Whitney Snitch!

"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!

"Now @FollowFitz, do you see Please anywhere in that exchange? You saw it your way, I see it mine. Stop whining, it's over.(sic)"

Fitz then made a Facebook video to address the situation and claimed he was happy to have the 'Snakes on a Plane' star swear at him.

He said: "I just had a big letdown of my life. There was no altercation. There was no situation.

"I just went on Twitter and I told Samuel L. Jackson, hey I couldn't believe how you treated one of your fans.

"If you're going to be told 'F you' on Twitter by anybody, it's awesome if it's done by Samuel L. Jackson."

And it seems the altercation could have a happy ending as the DJ has offered to raise money for a charity of the actor's choice.

In response to his video, Samuel wrote: "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 (sic)"

Fitz posted in reply: "@SamuelLJackson creating "IM A FAN OF ME TOO" t shirts to sell with ALL proceeds going to the charity of YOUR choice. Name the charity.

"we should all be fans of ourselves!! I also appreciate you responding to me. Showed me a lot. Let's turn it into a POSITIVE (sic)"
