Jamie Foxx Defends Jimmy Fallon Amid Backlash

Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon came under fire this week after a 2000 Saturday Night Live skit of him in blackface impersonating Chris Rock resurfaced.

Some are calling for the late-night host to apologize publicly and others want him ‘canceled’ altogether.

Tuesday Fallon tweeted:

Oscar winner and comedian Jamie Foxx came to Fallon’s defense and told E! News, He was doing an impression of Chris Rock. It wasn’t blackface. We are comedians and I know it’s a tough time right now. But this one is a stretch.

Fox added, On a show called ‘In Living Color’ we played every race. Let this one go. We got bigger fish to fry.
