Presumably it was meant to be a joke. At a recent news conference to promote Captain America: A Winter Soldier, the stars of the movie were asked to name a pop-culture item that they would have recommended to the title character, who has kept a check list of those items he has missed out on over the past 50 years. Quipped Samuel L. Jackson: “Redtube.” His reply was not funny to the actors who appear in the porn movies that are pirated on the site, nor to the porn producers who make them. The video website Vimeo posted a clip of the news conference and commented. that Redtube is “one of the largest repositories of stolen and pirated adult movies in the world. Shame on you, Samuel!” Porn-film actress Catalina Cruz told the TMZ website that Jackson’s films should be boycotted, noting that while Hollywood vehemently opposes piracy of mainstream movies, it somehow thinks its okay for people to steal porn. Porn actress Tanya Tate, who produces her own porn films, remarked to TMZ: “I would gladly send a catalog of adult movies I have directed to Mr. Jackson if he would be so kind as to recant the comment.” No word on whether Jackson plans to take her up on the offer.
