Samuel L Jackson's Twitter account 'likes' string of hardcore porn

Samuel L Jackson's 74th birthday was marked by fans noticing his Twitter account had "liked" a string of hardcore pornography sites.

The 'Shaft' actor's favoured tweets feed was filled with videos from Twitter user @blackpanda_00, which included a man involved in an intimate act and men and women having sex, as well as other explicit clips.

After Samuel's name started trending due to the likes, they were removed - but not before his followers screen-grabbed them and shared them online with comments about his supposed taste in adult material.
