Jamie Foxx attacked, apologizes for "antisemitic" Instagram post that wasn't antisemitic at all
I'm afraid to call it, but this might very well be the dumbest faux social media outrage of 2023. Jamie Foxx shared a since-deleted Instagram story that randos on Twitter/X thought was antisemitic. It wasn't, but Foxx's PR team called for an apology anyway. And somehow Jennifer Aniston got ensnared in it for reasons that are still confusing.
Let's start with the "offending" (in finger quotes) post. “They killed this dude named Jesus… What do you think they’ll do to you?! #fakefriends #fakelove.”
I, and I'm sure anyone with a functioning brain, took this to mean Foxx had someone close to him betray him. What gives it away is the hashtags "fake friends" and "fake love." The actor is coming off a life-threatening health scare (that someone blamed on the... you know). There were a lot of calls for privacy. One person could have broken is circle of trust.
Somehow, this turned into an antisemitism thing. I won't bother you with all the tweets. But it reached the threshold of "at least three idiots having the same dumb opinion" which makes this a story of a famous person being in hot water for saying a thing.
I am a Jewish advocate who fights antisemitism. Jamie Foxx’s post was a horrifically antisemitic message rooted in classic blood libel and anti Jewish conspiracy theory. He has 16.7 million followers. I’m not waiting on him to further expand.

Jennifer Aniston was accused of liking the Instagram story. Here's where things get confusing because, while I know losers will troll posts to see who they can like-shame, the people who like your Instagram stories are private. Also, when Aniston -- who has proven that she WON'T be there for you, contrary to what the song says -- claims that she didn't like the post on purpose OR on accident... um, pick one.
Of course, Foxx, or someone on his PR team, was forced to apologize because people didn't find the obvious meaning of his comments obvious: “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. "o clarify, I was betrayed by a fake friend and that’s what I meant with ‘they’ not anything more.”
Now everyone is turning on Jennifer Aniston.
Some of y'all... most of y'all, need to go touch grass. Either that or you need to find Jesus. It's Sunday. He should be easy to find.
Brodigan is Grand Poobah of this here website and when he isn't writing words about things enjoys day drinking, pro-wrestling, and country music. You can find him on the Twitter too.
