"I want to apologize to the Jewish community and everyone who was offended by my post. I now know my choice of words have caused offense and I'm sorry," the 55-year-old penned. "That was never my intent."
"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. I love and support the Jewish community. My deepest apologies to anyone who was offended ❤️❤️❤️," he continued.
The Annie actor signed off, saying, "Nothing but love always, Jamie Foxx ❤️🦊🙏 ."
In response to the announcement, fans of the Django Unchained alum expressed their support in the comments section.
"I am Jewish and I thought it was one h---uva leap to call it antisemitic. I knew exactly what you meant. Everybody needs to chill," one user said, while a second stated, "I know you personally, I'm Jewish and know you are the last person that would EVER act antisemitic. Your kind and thoughtful to everyone. I would vouch for you always…."
"It's a little shocking that people actually thought his post was antisemitic. His hashtags were #fakefriends among others. It's extremely common for people to use that story as a reference to betrayal by people you trust," a third explained.

However, that did not stop the rumors that the message was antisemitic from taking over internet, especially after Jewish-focused news organization A Wider Frame shared a screenshot showing that Jennifer Aniston had liked Foxx's upload.
The actress quickly debunked the accounts claims on her Instagram Story.
