Of all the ways I could have started my Tuesday morning, I had to start it by listening to this garbage.
41-year-old actor, musician, and one of the stars of the upcoming movie The Soloist (remember, I actually praised him a few months ago) Jamie Foxx apparently thought it’d be a good idea to call 16-year-old Miley Cyrus a “b****,” engage his co-hosts and the caller in a ridiculous conversation about her mouth, and encourage Cyrus to “make a sex tape,” “do some heroin,” “get some crack in [her] pipe,” and “catch chlamydia” on his radio show.
Thanks to E! Online you can listen to the recording, but those quotes pretty much sum it up.
There’s not any one word that can wrap up how I feel about Foxx and his alarmingly poor sense of judgment and serious lack of character right now. Shocked? Appalled? Disgusted? None of them quite do the job.
I mean, we are talking about a 16-year-old girl. Sure, she might be a bit moody, obnoxious, and diva-like at times, but Miley Cyrus is a 16-year-old girl. Jamie Foxx is a grown man – with a teenage daughter of his own, no less – exerting the energy to weave together a string of insults worthy of no one.
Classy, Foxx. I can’t think of a better way to show support for all the young ladies – young people in general – experiencing the very same emotional highs and lows and growing pains as teenagers across the globe, including your own daughter.
Bet you wouldn’t be too pleased if someone attacked her with even half the vigor you afforded Cyrus, hmm?
Up until this point, I’ve been pretty excited about the upcoming release of The Soloist; it’s an amazing true story that I believe will help shed light on mental illness. Now, however, I just don’t think I can justify paying one cent for anything this guy’s involved with. I am so disappointed. Maybe my admiration for Robert Downey, Jr. will supersede how revolting I find Foxx right now? I don’t know.
