Jennifer Aniston has taken to her Instagram Story to clarify her recent social media activity after facing accusations of “liking” Jamie Foxx’s seemingly antisemitic message. The 54-year-old actress vehemently denied purposefully endorsing the post and expressed her disapproval of antisemitism and any form of hate. She emphasized that she does not tolerate hate of any kind and wants to be clear that she does not support such views.
Earlier, Jamie Foxx, who is currently recovering from a medical complication, posted a troubling message on his Instagram, which mentioned Jesus and included hashtags like “Fake Friends” and “Fake Love.” The post was met with backlash and accusations of spreading antisemitic rhetoric, prompting Foxx to apologize. He clarified that his words were meant to refer to a fake friend who betrayed him, not to promote hate, and he expressed his love and support for the Jewish community.
This really makes me sick. I did not ‘like’ this post on purpose or by accident,” Aniston, 54, wrote via her Instagram Story on Saturday, August 5. “And more importantly, I want to be clear to my friends and anyone hurt by this showing up in their feeds — I do NOT support antisemitism. And I truly don’t tolerate HATE of any kind. Period.”
Several hours earlier, Foxx, 55, posted a troubling message via his Instagram. “They killed this dude name Jesus … They’ll do to you???!” he wrote on both his Instagram and Instagram Story, alongside “Fake Friends” and “Fake Love” hashtags.
Jennifer Aniston’s social media activity was brought into the spotlight when it appeared that she had “liked” Foxx’s controversial post. However, she made it clear that it was not intentional and reiterated her stance against hate and antisemitism.
This incident follows similar antisemitic comments made by Kanye West in the past, which resulted in widespread denouncement from many celebrities. The rise of hate speech and attacks on Jewish people has sparked concern, and A-listers have been vocal in condemning such behavior.
