In a now-deleted Instagram post, Jamie Foxx sent a message to certain “fake friends,” quoting the lines “They killed this dude named Jesus… What do you think they’ll do to you???!”. The online community was quick to respond, accusing Foxx of targeting the Jewish community. Some critics believed that “They” in his post referred to Jewish people, promoting the anti-Semitic idea that Jews should be blamed for the crucifixion of Jesus.

The Annie actor promptly realized his mistake, taking down the post and issuing an apology after facing severe criticism. The Law Abiding Citizen actor clarified that he had never intended to propagate anti-Semitic sentiments and expressed remorse:

“I want to apologize to the Jewish community and everyone who was offended by my post. I now know my choice of words have caused offense and I’m sorry. That was never my intent. To clarify, I was betrayed by a fake friend and that’s what I meant with ‘they’ not anything more. I only have love in my heart for everyone. I love and support the Jewish community. My deepest apologies to anyone who was offended.”

Jennifer Aniston, his Horrible Bosses co-star, also became entangled in the controversy after it was discovered that she had liked Foxx’s Instagram post. The FRIENDS actress later disavowed The Kingdom actor’s remarks, asserting that she does not tolerate any form of hate directed at any community.

A few celebrities and fans came in defense of the 55-year-old actor during the controversy. Jewish actor David Krumholtz defended Foxx, asserting that he did not interpret the post as antisemitic. Music producer Breyon Presscot also voiced support for the Ray actor, emphasizing the actor’s reputation for harboring no animosity toward colleagues.
