Jamie Foxx is coming to his own defense after facing harsh backlash over a joke he made about Bruce Jenner at the iHeartRadio Music Awards.
While discussing the incident with Hot 97, Jamie insists he’s not transphobic and points to the fact he gave B. Scott a radio show on Sirius/XM’s The Foxxhole.
Let’s do this for the transgender world. Let’s talk about The Foxxhole radio. Years back, when we first started ‘The Foxxhole’ radio I said ‘I need my show to beat everybody and everything’. I don’t want [my show] to be like everyone else.
So, I’m looking on the Internet and I see this transgender — I thought he was a girl at first. I’m like, ‘Who is that? — oh hey wait a minute!’ And he was this dude named B. Scott. And the dude’s show was SO dope, that I said ‘Yo, man get in touch with that dude. He needs to be a DJ on ‘The Foxxhole’.’
So, we put him on there — hella backlash. Everybody was mad, I said ‘Man he’s dope’.
