Don Lemon, CNN anchor and race provocateur du jour, says that KTLA entertainment reporter Sam Rubin made an understandable mistake when he confused actor Samuel L. Jackson with actor Laurence Fishburne.

As previously reported by NewsOne, Jackson was making the media rounds to promote his new film, RoboCop, when Rubin asked him about the reaction to his Super Bowl commercial.

There’s only one problem: Jackson wasn’t in a Super Bowl commercial; Fishburne was. That’s when Jackson went all the way in on Rubin.

“You’re as crazy as those people on Twitter,” Jackson playfully scolded. “I’m not Laurence Fishburne! We don’t all look alike!”

“You’re the entertainment reporter?” he said to Rubin in an incredulous tone. “You’re the entertainment reporter for this station and you don’t know the difference between me and Laurence Fishburne?”

“My mistake,” said Rubin. “My big mistake. I apologize.”

Jackson returned, “There must be a very short line for your job.”

Rubin tried to change the subject, but Jackson thoroughly enjoyed making him squirm.

Watch it below:

Lemon said on “Outfront with Erin Burnett” Tuesday evening that Rubin’s mistake was not uncommon:

“People all the time say to me, ‘You look just like Don Lemon,’ and I would go, ‘I hear that all the time!'” “And after a moment I would go, ‘I am Don Lemon!’”

“When someone is in our tribe, I think it’s particularly easier for us to tell them apart, because we’re used to their facial features,” Lemon explained, “Let’s be honest, I’m probably going to get in trouble here –people do look alike! There are features that African Americans have that are similar! There are features that white people have that are similar! Features that Hispanic people have that are similar!”

CORRECTION: Don Lemon did not say that “Black people look alike.” His direct quote is: “There are features that African-Americans have that are similar.” The title has been corrected and we apologize for the error.
