Jamie Foxx is trying to make amends for bashing “Hannah Montana” star Miley Cyrus on his self titled Sirius radio show over the weekend. It all started when one of his homies asked him on the air, “Did you all hear what that bitch [Miley] said? She had the nerve to put down Radiohead when they didn’t want to meet her before the Grammys.” Foxx responded with
“Who is Miley Cyrus? The one with all the gums? Let me get an order of mouth, light on the teeth, heavy on the gums.[Bitch need to] do some heroin… be a lesbian and put some crack in your pipe. Catch chlamydia.”
In response to the public outcry, Jamie went on last night’s Tonight Show with Jay Leno in the hopes of back-pedaling his way to forgiveness. He said
“I am a comedian, and you guys know that whatever I say, I don’t mean any of it. And sometimes, as comedians, as we do, we go a little bit too far… There was a situation with Miley Cyrus, and I just want to say, I apologize for what I said. I didn’t mean it maliciously.
Miley, I apologize, so I’ll call you. I got a daughter too, so I completely understand.”
Funny how that works, isn’t it? Jamie cracks on Miley’s gums and it’s “harmless” and “all in good fun.” Had Miley mentioned his gums, she’d be labeled a bigot and a racist and the media backlash would have been swift and unmerciful. Some people call that a double standard. I like to call it, “You earned your keep playing Ugly Wanda and the dude who got his salad tossed by a dog in Booty Call.” I guess that’s what they mean when they say people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.
