Actor Jamie Foxx has come to the defence of TV show host Jimmy Fallon who recently tendered an apology for using blackface for his SNL appearance 20 years ago.
The Django Unchained actor defended Fallon in his comments on the latter's Instagram post where he said he was sorry for his SNL impression of Chris Rock.
"Bro You ain't got to apologize for s**t," Jamie wrote while praising Jimmy Fallon and calling him a great comedian.
The Tonight Show host is facing criticism after his SNL performance from 20 years ago resurfaced on the internet.
Jimmy said, "I made a terrible decision to do an impersonation of Chris Rock while in blackface. There is no excuse for this. I am very sorry for making this unquestionably offensive decision and thank all of you for holding me accountable."
