Jamie Foxx Apologizes To Miley Cyrus Via Jay Leno

  • Jamie Foxx apologized on the Tonight Show for his statements about Miley Cyrus (he called her a “little white bitch” and suggested she should “go catch chlamydia from a bicycle seat”), telling Jay Leno:

“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. I have a radio show…We’re really the black Howard Stern. 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.” [E!]
