Jamie Foxx makes me SICK...

After the truly heinous things the GROWN man said about a CHILD, he is being welcomed and treated GREAT by the media people he is interviewing with to promote his new movie. Now I know many of the comments from before centered on not liking the CHILD in question, but his remarks were RACIST and DISGUSTING, and if the race situation had been reveresed he would have been hiding under a rock now to escape a media frenzy that would have been tearing him apart!!!!!

Does seeing him now getting a free pass make anyone else angry!?

  • No.
    Why you think he can not use his right of freedom of speech?

  • I agree, he's nauseating. But, we can,once again, thank the liberal media. They don't care one iota about how wrong he was,or is. Not to mention, and this is why I'm posting this anon, the AA's especially celebrities seem to think since we have a new "president", they have a free pass to treat the rest of us like crap for the next 4 years! And, if anything is said, you can bet your bottom dollar,they will play the race card, loud and clear. It's not right,and it sucks,but it's how we are stuck, for the next 4 years.

  • So 1st Anon, you think Don Imus should have kept HIS job right? I mean after all the man only said the word "nappy". He didn't wish STD's on a minor or tell a minor to "go make a sex tape. If it's free speech then EVERYONE gets to say HATEFUL things, not just ONE RACE. He also made fun of her looks (a CHILD) and told the MINOR to "grow up and make a sex tape"

  • I do not understand why the media idolizes actors and entertainers. I wouldn't even call them "celebrities" or "movie stars" because they are bigoted, judgmental, morons.

    I do not buy CDs, magazines, or watch movies, or crap like ET, or E news. I am not giving money to condone this behavior. The only people who create this frenzy around these people are the media. I teach my kids that they are no different than every other person in this world.

  • I thought it was pretty funny..."The one with all the gums, she will need a gum transplant" I cant stop laughing!!! But aside from that, it was messed up what he said. That's someone's child, he wouldnt want someone saying that about his daughter.

  • I agree with thundernlight...

    I do my part to not support the projects or platforms or the sponsors of said projects or platforms when some celebrity type spouts off about WHATEVER it is I passionately disagree with! Just like I am capable of casting my vote, I can also choose to spend my money selectively...it's the only power I have! :o)
