Jamie Foxx has defended Jimmy Fallon after a resurfaced SNL clip from 2000 showed the talk show host impersonating Chris Rock in blackface. Foxx weighed in on the matter with “Bro you ain’t got to apologize for s**t. You are a comedian… and a great one at that. You did an incredible impersonation of Chris Rock… it was not black face… we did a show called in living color where we did a Characters from every race… You are all the way good… keep doing you my friend! You are necessary!” He followed up in a second comment, “Some of y’all didn’t even see the sketch… relax and laugh! It’s Others out here that really don’t care bout ya… use that energy for them!!! But leave my mans alone.”
Jimmy has since apologized for the sketch and appreciates those holding him accountable.
