Is Jamie Foxx Dead?

Actor, Jamie Foxx is alive, not dead.  The actor made headlines after two racist men called him the n-word.  The incident occurred in Croatia where he’s filming Robin Hood: Origins.  Jamie was having a great time in the county prior to the altercation.  The restaurant called the police and the two men were charged with disorderly conduct.

The men didn’t actually say the n-word.  They used a racial slur with the same meaning.  Jamie Foxx is a good person who doesn’t deserve to be mistreated.  The talented actor managed to keep his composure.  A day after the incident, Foxx shared the Instagram video below, expressing his love for Croatia.

When you have a personality like Jamie’s you don’t let ignorant people kill your vibe.  As he explains in the following video, he’s just a boy from Texas.

Foxx started his career as a comedian in the late 1980s.  It all started with a dare from one of his girlfriends.  Jamie was a huge Red Foxx fan so he decided to use Foxx as his last name.  Female comedians typically performed first back then, so Foxx changed his first name from Eric to Jamie.  He knew people wouldn’t be able to determine if he was a man or a woman with the name Jamie Foxx.
