Ouch! Jamie Foxx Publicly Blasts Will Smith Over Oscars Boycott

Oh no, prior it was “Aunt Viv,” then Paul Rodriguez, and now Jamie Foxx. Currently, it looked like everyone’s gunning for Will Smith, not confirmed if it’s just a coincidence, or rather the timing of the Oscar’s boycott that he and his wife, named, Jada,

have sparked this year. This time around, it’s Foxx who took shots at Smith and his acting at the American Black Film Festival this past Sunday, relating Smith’s plans to boycott the Oscars, which Jamie has won in the past. Supposed to,Foxx ain’t truly feeling how Smith has officially voiced his disagreement with the lack of honor that the Oscars has repeatedly displayed for Black actors (especially this year, where not one Black actor was nominated for anything).

So Foxx did what he does best, told about it and didn’t bite his tongue among the room full of numerous celebs at the awards show, including Kerry Washington and Pharrell Williams. As Jamie was presenting producer,Will Packer, with the Distinguished ABFF Alumni Award, he had some stuff he desired to get off of his chest about Will Smith first and this is what he told: “All these Oscar talks, I don’t even trip about that. I mean, what’s the huge deal? I was sitting at house with my Oscar, like ‘What’s all the hubbub?’

My friend told, “Are you crazy?” ‘Um, kind of, but not truly.’ I began calling Denzel [Washington], and we just Instagrammed our Oscars together.” Foxx also clowned Smith for his Nigerian accent that he used in the movie, Concussion, and then he followed that up by saying“#WhatsTheBigDeal? #ActBetter” and that’s when the audience laughed and were quite surprised at the same time. “I was with Sidney Poitier just a few weeks ago, and in 1963 all he asked for was an chance to act. That’s all we have to do, chance.

If you turn the camera on and say ‘OK . . . win an award . . . and action,’ we’ll all have taken, like, 10 steps back. It’s all about the art. Who cares about anything else?” Well, well, well, it sounds like Jamie Foxx had it out for Will Smith on that day.I’m not sure if there is any tension between the 2, but for Foxx to publicly blast the man with his “#ActBetter” statement solely because Smith is standing up for something that Jamie doesn’t wondered is necessary, seems a lil’ harsh,

and it makes you think if there is more to this story than we perhaps know. While I do understand part of where Jamie is coming from relating to the Oscars- because I’ve told many time and time again that it’s just a trophy and.

it does not have the power to validate each actors’ ability as an actor- BUT on the other hand, it is just the blatant dis-honor that is intentionally being shown by to not just Back actors, but numerous actors of color, that is truly jacked up on the Oscars part and has numerous frustrated with the organization.
