Even Samuel L. Jackson Should Think Before He Tweets
April 22, 2016
It seems when one celeb dies, news of other deaths start circulating — even if they happened years ago.
Yolanda King, daughter of Martin Luther King. Jr., died in 2007. Yet people mourned all over again yesterday.
Other celebrities get caught up, too.
Actor Samuel L. Jackson reminded his Twitter followers to honor soul singer Percy Sledge, who died in April ... in 2015.
Let's not forget Percy Sledge joined Prince yesterday on that inevitable trip Home. When A Man Loves A Woman fueled many a fire!— Samuel L. Jackson (@SamuelLJackson) April 22, 2016
@SamuelLJackson Thank you so much! I wouldn't had known otherwise, and that would've been quite unfortunate. He was a true icon. RIP— DAYV FUGITT (@SirDayv) April 22, 2016
