Samuel L Jackson got into a heated argument on Twitter with a fan who blasted the actor for not posing for a photograph with him.

The fan, a radio DJ known as The Fitz, wrote: "That moment when you meet one of your favorite actors & they are a COMPLETE D**K!!!!!!!!! What an arrogant PUNK!"

He had bumped into the Pulp Fiction star and was put out by the fact that Jackson declined to pose for a photo with him.

The tweet was picked up by the 67-year-old actor, who was quick to comment with his own version of events and advised the DJ to have some manners the next time.

"I refused the photo politely @FollowFITZ then you spazzed out!", he wrote on the social media app.

"Learn to say Please & F**k you! Thanks for the Whitney Snitch!"

The Fitz disputed that he hadn't lost his cool and was just behaving as a star-struck fan but Jackson replied once more, writing, "I said thanks but no @FollowFITZ, you said Aww C'mon, I'm a big fan, me, sorry, you, I watch all your movies but not anymore!...

"Now @FollowFitz, do you see Please anywhere in that exchange? You saw it your way, I see it mine. Stop whining, it's over."

On Sunday The Fitz, who refused to let it go, recorded an online video where he discussed the exchange in detail.

“I just had a big letdown of my life,” he said. “There was no altercation. There was no situation … It ruined my day.”

Adding that "If you're going to be told 'F you' on Twitter by anybody, it's awesome if it's done by Samuel L. Jackson."

Jackson tweeted at the DJ, telling him that he watched the video.

“You’re right @FollowFitz, I watched,” Jackson said. “There’s a lot of folks that share your experience w/ me & tons of others just the opposite! Still a Fan.”
