RIGHT ON! Jamie Foxx Just Put Oscar Boycotters on BLAST – Delivers Message to THIS Race-Baiting Actor

As the Oscars approach, Will Smith’s boycott due to supposed “racism” is back in the news. And Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx, who also happens to be black, just put Smith on blast for the boycott.

The reason Will Smith doesn’t have an Oscar is because he isn’t a good enough actor, Jamie Foxx has implied.

Speaking at the American Black Film Festival Awards in Beverly Hills on Sunday, the Academy Award-winning actor make a joke about how he doesn’t get ‘what’s the big deal’ with Smith’s Oscar boycott.

… ‘All these Oscar talks, I don’t even trip about that. I mean, what’s the big deal? I was sitting at home with my Oscar, like ‘What’s all the hubbub?’ Foxx said at Sunday night’s event, as he was introducing producer Will Packer for the Distinguished ABFF Alumni Award.

‘My friend said, “Are you mad?” “Um, kind of, but not really,”‘ Foxx continued. ‘I started calling Denzel [Washington], and we just Instagrammed our Oscars together.’

… Foxx finished his bit by calling out ‘#WhatsTheBigDeal?’ and ‘#ActBetter’ – with the audience reportedly roaring with laughter.

As he changed the subject to acting legend Sidney Poitier, Foxx explained whey he doesn’t care so much for the #OscarsSoWhite movement.

‘I was with Sidney Poitier just a couple weeks ago, and in 1963 all he asked for was an opportunity to act,’ Foxx said. ‘That’s all we have to do, opportunity. If you turn the camera on and say “OK . . . win an award . . . and action,” we’ll all have taken, like, 10 steps back. It’s all about the art. Who cares about anything else?’

Foxx has it completely right. That’s not to say that the Academy never overlooks performances that should win or make the right decision, but Smith’s boycott seems like a huge overreaction. #Jealous, Will?
