The vocal misstep led people to call out the Rambo star, which recently included fellow actor and award-winner Samuel L. Jackson. “#waitwaitwait, Ryan Coogler & Michael B. Jordan, Thanks for acting with me!!! Loved Sly but…” Jackson wrote on Twitter.

Now, Stallone has taken to his social media account as well to share a statement on the matter. “Samuel Jackson is upset that I foolishly forgot to mention the brilliant Ryan Coogler and MB Jordan he is right I owe them everything.”
