Jennifer Aniston and Jamie Foxx are both trying to clear up some contentious misunderstandings on social media.
The brouhaha began when Jamie, 55, posted an angry message which read, ‘They killed this dude called Jesus… what do you think they’ll do to you???!’ followed by the hashtags #fakefriends and #fakelove.
Someone named Jennifer Aniston appeared to ‘like’ the remarks, which were subsequently labeled antisemitic.
‘Actor Jamie Foxx posts horrifically antisemitic message to his 16.7 million followers,’ wrote the A Wide Frame account, which spotted the offensive post.
