Jamie Foxx accused of antisemitism after post about Jews 'killing' Jesus

August 06, 2023

Actor and musician Jamie Foxx wrote a post on Instagram on Friday saying "They killed this dude name Jesus... What do you think they'll do to you???!" The actor later deleted the post, but not before being accused of antisemitism on social media, as much of the antisemitism aimed at Jews has been the result of the belief that Jews are responsible for Jesus's death as the New Testament tells that Jesus was caught and crucified after being betrayed by Judas. Fellow actress Jennifer Aniston, who liked Foxx's post before it was deleted, later wrote in an Instagram story that "This really makes me sick. "I want to apologize to the Jewish community and everyone who was offended by my post," he wrote on Instagram. Foxx went on the claim that by "they" he was referring to a "fake friend" who had betrayed him.
