Samuel L. Jackson vows to exchange lessons on swearing for action on voting


Samuel L. Jackson on Monday promised his followers he would teach them how to swear in 15 different languages if enough of them go online to check their registration or register to vote.

The actor made the announcement in a tweet on Monday afternoon, shortly after urging voters earlier in the day to visit his link at to check their voter registration status and register to vote if they haven’t already.

“Go now and you may get a very special ‘tutorial’ from me! Every vote Counts!” added Jackson, who has used his platform to urge fans to vote in the past.


He later added that he would teach his 8.5 million followers to swear in 15 different languages if they visit his link to make sure they are “#GoodToVote.”

Upon visiting the link, users are met with three different voting actions they can select: registering, checking their registration and a third option providing them with information about voting methods and polling places to make their “vote plan.”

In less than an hour, Jackson’s video message has racked up more than 2,600 likes and more than 44,900 views.

In 2017, the acclaimed actor participated in a radio ad supporting the Democratic Party ahead of a Georgia House special election, in which he referenced lines from his classic 1994 film “Pulp Fiction.”

He also partnered with Swing Left the following year in a series of comedic videos in which he did chores for Democratic candidates too busy campaigning in an effort to push people to volunteer to flip the then-GOP-led House.
