The ever-prolific, one-and-only Samuel L. Jackson was in attendance for the annual Celebrate Israel parade in New York Sunday, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the event alongside thousands who marched together down Manhattan's Fifth Avenue.

Some 200 organizations took part in the event.

Jackson, who's starred in over a hundred films from cult classics like Pulp Fiction to fan heavyweights like Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith to more random films like Snakes on a Plane, tweeted a selfie at the parade, alongside the caption: “Celebrate Israel Parade in NY today.”

With 3.74 million followers on Twitter, naturally, the photo received quite a bit attention, with many congratulating the actor on his support of Israel, with others questioning him for taking part in an event that celebrates an "apartheid" state.

While some of those tweeters out there have had some very foul comments for the actor, Jackson, true to his bad ass calm, collective self, has yet to comment, and probably won't have anything else to say on the matter.

He truly is a bad motherf**ker.
