Samuel L. Jackson is one of the Hollywood stars who has turned to encourage participation in the next presidential elections in the United States and his latest idea has been to teach how to say bad words in Basque and Catalan, among other languages, to promote the vote for November. #GoodToVote is an actor’s campaign in which he invites people to check that they are correctly registered to vote and that they know all the necessary steps to cast their vote.
A couple of days ago, Jackson , which has 8.5 million followers on Twitter, promised that if 2,500 people came to the #GoodToVote website, it would teach profanity in 15 different languages. So once that figure was reached, the actor fulfilled his promise and gave some small lessons on Twitter about swearing and insults in languages such as Basque (‘zoaz popatik hartzera’) and Catalan (‘que et fotin’). It also included other languages such as Esperanto, Maori, Swahili or Icelandic. Jackson , who has repeatedly harshly criticized the US president Donald Trump He is an expert in swearing, at least in his work as an actor. An analysis, with more playful interest than serious research, published on the Buzz Bingo website, assured in May of this year that the African-American is the third Hollywood actor with the most swearing on the big screen (301) only behind Jonah Hill (376) and Leonardo Dicaprio (361).
Hill and DiCaprio reached the top of this list thanks to The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) by Martin Scorsese , which, according to this study that reviewed 3,500 scripts in search of profanity, said that it is the film with bad words (715). Oscar nominee for Best Supporting Actor for Pulp Fiction (1994), Jackson has recently appeared in Disney films about Marvel superheroes (such as Avengers: Endgame and Captain Marvel, both from 2019), relaunched the Shaft saga with a movie of the same name last year, worked with M. Night Shyamalan in Glass (2019) and this year featured the controversial The Banker on Apple TV +.
