As immediate as the world of social media is, you’ll know whether you did something terribly wrong or honorably right in a matter of seconds with any comment, product, or advertisement. In this case, Jamie Foxx may have knocked all three into the terrible category in one disposition at the iHeartRadio Music Awards last night.
The backlash fest began when Foxx made this statement: “We got Bruce Jenner, who will be doing some musical performances. He’s doing a his-and-her duet all by himself.”
With that, negative social media comments began to flow like a massive leak in the Hoover Dam. Twitter users exclaimed outrage in various ways. Some stated that the joke was simply disgusting and terrible, while others attacked Foxx personally, stating he was disgusting. There weren’t exactly many laughs to go around in-house either, as the audience gave a similar reaction to the joke.
What do you think? Bad humor or good fun?
