Actress Jennifer Aniston has chosen to disable comments on her Instagram account following her accusations against Jamie Foxx for a controversial post he made on social media. Foxx’s post, featuring the phrase “They killed this dude called Jesus… what do you think they’ll do to you???!” along with hashtags implying insincere friendships, sparked allegations of antisemitism. Some individuals interpreted the “they” in Foxx’s message as referring to Jews. However, Foxx later clarified that his comments were directed towards a “fake friend” and not aimed at any particular religious group. He also issued apologies to those who may have been offended.
Jennifer Aniston, best known for her role in Friends, was among the first to denounce Foxx’s apparent antisemitism. Taking to her Instagram stories, she expressed her disapproval for the post, emphasizing her non-support of any form of antisemitism and her intolerance towards hate in general.
Aniston’s criticism of Foxx drew backlash from fans who stood in support of Foxx and argued that she unjustly accused him of antisemitism.
