Jamie Foxx steps out in public for first time since apologizing for ‘antisemitic’ post

Jamie Foxx was seen out in Los Angeles for the first time since he issued a public apology for a controversial post some believed was “antisemitic.”

The “They Cloned Tyrone” star, 55, was photographed with his ex Kristin Grannis as they ran errands on Thursday.

Foxx wore a black Amiri long-sleeved shirt, black pants and a pair of white sneakers for the outing.

Meanwhile, Grannis — who is mom to the Oscar winner’s youngest daughter Annalise, 14 — wore an orange hoodie and sweatpants.

The sighting is the first time paparazzi has snapped Foxx since his Instagram post about Jesus created an uproar online last week.

The since-deleted post read, “They killed this dude named Jesus … What do you think they’ll do to you?! #fakefriends #fakelove.”

Many, including Jennifer Aniston, “liked” the message. However, the “Friends” alum, 54, later denied that she supported the post.

“This really makes me sick,” she wrote via her Instagram Story on Aug. 4. “I did not ‘like’ this post on purpose or by accident.”

Aniston then further clarified, “And more importantly, I want to be clear to my friends and anyone hurt by this showing up in their feeds — I do NOT support any form of antisemitism. And I truly don’t tolerate HATE of any kind. Period.”

“Just once I’d like to log onto this site and not see antisemitism, especially from huge celebrities like Jamie Foxx and Jennifer Aniston,” one person previously tweeted. “You don’t want to be an ally, fine, but leave us the heck alone!”

Another added at the time, “I am a Jewish advocate who fights antisemitism. Jamie Foxx’s post was a horrifically antisemitic message rooted in classic blood libel and anti Jewish conspiracy theory.”

Following the backlash, Foxx said he was sorry to those who were “offended” by his post.

“I want to apologize to the Jewish community and everyone who was offended by my post,” he wrote via Instagram on Aug. 5.

“I now know my choice of words have caused offense and I am sorry. That was never my intent.”

The “Jamie Foxx Show” alum went on to explain what his message truly meant.

“To clarify, I was betrayed by a fake friend and that’s what I meant with ‘they’ not anything more. I only have love in my heart for everyone,” he wrote.

“I love and support the Jewish community. My deepest apologies to anyone who was offended. Nothing but love always.”

A few days after the criticism, Foxx unwound with game of pickleball against Olympian Casey Patterson.

The “Blame It” singer has been recovering from a mysterious “medical complication” that caused him to be hospitalized back in April.

Last month, Foxx told his fans in an emotional update about his health, “I went through something I thought I would never, ever go through …. but, I’m coming back, and I am able to work.”
