Later in the day he deleted the post and uploaded a statement apologizing. It reads: ” 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 bent 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 ❤️❤️❤️

Nothing but love always,

Jamie Foxx ❤️🦊🙏”

Jennifer Anniston Statement

‘Friends’ actress, Jennifer Aniston, has issued her own statement after she allegedly liked Foxx’s original post. She took to her Instagram Stories, saying: “This really makes me sick. I did not “like” this post on purpose or by accident. And more importantly, I want to be clear to my friends and anyone hurt by this showing up on their feeds – I do NOT support any form of antisemitism. And I truly don’t tolerate HATE of any kind. Period.”
