Jamie Foxx has apologized for sharing a contentious Instagram photo on Friday that some people found to be "antisemitic."
The Oscar winner apologized on Instagram on Saturday: "I want to apologize to the Jewish community and everyone who was offended by my post."
"I am sorry; I now realize that my word choice offended. Never was my intention.
Foxx, 55, continued by elaborating on what he thought the post's true meaning was.
To be clear, the only thing I meant by 'them' was that I had been duped by a phony buddy. I only have love for everyone in my heart.
I love and support the Jewish community, the "Ray" actor reiterated in her closing statement.
I apologize profusely to everyone who was upset. There is only love, always.Reactions to Foxx's apologies were diverse, but overall they were favorable.
One user wrote, "Glad to see this, big fan of yours, didn't know what to think of this post, thanks for posting this apology and best of luck on your ongoing recovery."
