Jackson may be a staunch supporter of President Barack Obama but he surely didn't hold back on his criticism of the commander-in-chief in an interview on the October issue of Playboy.

"First of all, we know it ain't because of his blackness, so I say stop trying to 'relate.' Be a leader. Be f***ing presidential," said Jackson. "Look, I grew up in a society where I could say 'It ain't' or 'What it be' to my friends. But when I'm out presenting myself to the world as me, who graduated from college, who had family who cared about me, who has a well-read background, I f***ing conjugate."
