Samuel L. Jackson Causes Twitter Trouble with Isaac/GOP Tweet

Bobby Bank/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Samuel L. Jackson ruffled a few feathers on Twitter Monday when he commented on how the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., will avoid the worst of Tropical Storm Isaac.

The actor, referring to the possibility that the storm might hit New Orleans, wrote, "Unfair S***: GOP spared by Issac ! NOLA prolly F***ed Again! Not understanding God's plan!"

He was immediately inundated with uncomplimentary tweets from upset people.

Jackson later wrote, "Daayum! Poked a Hornets nest, hunh? Apologies to God, Tampa, da GOP& Isaac(sp)! Who played the Race card?!"

When asked by a writer how he felt about political tension in the U.S., Rock responded, "I actually like it, in the sense that -- you got kids?" asked Rock. "Kids always act up the most before they go to sleep. And when I see the Tea Party and all this stuff, it actually feels like racism's almost over. Because this is the last -- this is the act up before the sleep. They're going crazy. They're insane. You want to get rid of them -- and the next thing you know, they're [bleeping] knocked out. And that's what's going on in the country right now."
