He may have to get in line, however.
At some point, though, Jamie Foxx, the man who co-starred in Ali, would like to steal a pugilistic page from the most famous boxer of all-time.
At the American Music Awards last week, the actor was asked about former Seinfeld star and current racist, Michael Richards. He responded with:
“He would’ve had to put his dukes up, … [Michael] probably should go get a private island somewhere, ’cause if I see him…!”
Foxx didn’t finish that statement. We assume he’s threatening to show Richards the director’s cut of Stealth.
Meanwhile, the supposed comedian appeared on Jesse Jackson’s radio show Sunday night.
As he tried to come across as less shady than Wilmer Valderrama, Richards expressed fears about today’s youth and the impresion he may have left on them.
The good buddy of Jerry Seinfeld said “young whites will think it’s cool” to use such hateful slurs because they see “very cool people in the show business” using the word freely.
Presumably, Richards wasn’t referring to himself. We’re pretty sure Isla Fisher is cooler these days.
