After facing intense backlash for his seemingly antisemitic post on Instagram, Jamie Foxx has issued a statement apologizing for his actions. The Spider-Man: No Way Home star has clarified that his words were highly misconstrued. And that he did not intend to offend anyone.

This apology came after his ambiguous Instagram post which was perceived to be charged with antisemitism. The hate toward the Jewish Community is a highly sensitive subject. And Foxx’s attempt at lessening the harsh repercussions does not seem to work.

In the apology Jamie Foxx posted, he stated that his now-deleted Instagram post was about being hurt by a friend and not toward the Jewish Community. His apology statement reads:

“I want to apologize to the Jewish community and everyone who was offended by my post, I now know my choice of words has 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 ❤️❤️❤️. Nothing but love always, Jamie Foxx.”

Foxx is referring to the post made by him the day prior which ensued the bashing on the internet. And denies all the claims made regarding his standing on the subject.
