Jamie Foxx apologises over Istagram post

Actor Jamie Foxx has apologised for an Instagram post after accusations that it was antisemitic.

Foxx posted “They killed this dude name Jesus… what do you think they’ll do to you???! #fakefriends #fakelove”.

However, some social media users said Foxx’s post echoed an antisemitic belief that Jewish people were collectively responsible for Jesus Christ’s death.

Foxx has since deleted the post and then apologised in a new Instagram post in which he said: “I want to apologise to the Jewish community and everyone who was offended by my post.”

He went on to explain that his origianl post referred to a betrayal by someone close to him saying: “To clarify, I was betrayed by a fake friend and that’s what I meant with ‘they’…”

Actress Jennifer Aniston also faced criticism after she appeared to “like” Foxx’s original post before it was deleted.

The Friends actor then released a statement on Instagram, saying she did not support any form of antisemitism.
