Samuel L. Jackson verbally whooped an L.A. news anchor up the side of the head Monday morning when the guy mistook him for that other

black actor who makes commercials, Laurence Fishburne.

Jackson, who was promoting his new movie, “RoboCop,” did not let KTLA entertainment reporter Sam Rubin off the hook when he asked about Jackson’s Super Bowl commercial.

Dude, no!

That was Fishburne in that Kia ad.

“You're as crazy as the people on Twitter – I'm not Laurence Fishburne!" Jackson yelled at Rubin. “We don’t all look alike! There’s more than one black guy doing a commercial!”

This is really, really, hard to watch.

I'm Not Laurence Fishburne, YOU MORON!!!
