Many might have agreed with 41-year-old comedian Jamie Foxx regarding his offensive comments toward Hannah Montana
star Miley Cyrus, but that didn't stop him from taking back his words. The actor stopped by The Tonight Show with Jay Leno
last Tuesday to apologize, as well as to explain the reasons for his crude statements.
"I so apologize to [Cyrus], and this is sincere," Foxx 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."
Addressing the situation further, he continued: "We go at everybody. 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. You know I'm a comedian. You know my heart."
"Miley, I apologize, so I'll call you. I got a daughter too, so I completely understand," Foxx declared. As a father to a 14-year-old girl, he should have considered how upsetting his outburst on his radio show was. Another father seemed to have taken a note of that, and it's Miley's own dad, Billy Ray Cyrus.
On Thursday's The Bonnie Hunt Show, Billy Ray said, "It was hurtful. "There wasn't nothing funny about it. And, quite frankly, I think if I said those things about his daughter, he might not find it so comedic."
As for the 16-year-old teen superstar, she hasn't released any statements regarding the issue. There was one mention of her dad on her Twitter account, as she blogged: "I have the best dad ever!!!" which could refer to Billy Ray's defense of her daughter on The Bonnie Hunt Show. Until she launches another reply to the pending situation, we all have to sit patiently and await what's coming next in the Cyrus saga.-Maria Gonzalez, BuddyTV Staff Columnist
