Sam Rubin needs to go back to sensitivity training.
The Jewish KTLA anchor, who once called out Mel Gibson on his anti-Semitic remarks, committed a major faux-pas yesterday when he confused Samuel L. Jackson with Lawrence Fishburne on-air.
It all started with Rubin asking Jackson, who stars in the upcoming “Robocop,” what the reaction to his Super Bowl ad was like, the New York Daily News reported.
“What Super Bowl commercial?” Jackson asked. (For reference, this is the Kia commercial that Lawrence Fishburne — Morpheus from “The Matrix” — starred in.)
Rubin can be seen looking off-camera clearly embarrassed. He awkwardly tried to diffuse the situation, but Jackson would have none of it.
