Jamie Foxx sorry for Instagram post after claims of antisemitism – as Jen.nifer Aniston says she didn’t ‘like’ it

Jamie Foxx has issued an apology over a now-deleted social media post that was accused of being antisemitic – with fellow actor Jennifer

Aniston distancing herself from it and saying she “did not ‘like’ it on purpose or by accident”.

Foxx‘s original post on Instagram read: “They killed this dude named Jesus. What do you think they’ll do to you???! #fakefriends #fakelove.”

Jewish news platform A Wider Frame shared the post, calling it “horrifically antisemitic” – referencing the antisemitic belief that Jewish people were responsible for the death of Jesus.

The 55-year-old, who has almost 17 million followers on Instagram, later addressed his remarks saying: “I want to apologise to the Jewish community and to everyone who was offended by my post. I now know my words of choice have caused offence and I’m sorry. That was never my intent.”

The Oscar winner added: “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.
