Ice-T slammed “weirdos” on social media who have been spreading conspiracy theories about Jamie Foxx’s health. The comments come after the actor suffered a prolonged “medical complication,” throughout the last several months.
Ice-T wrote on Twitter: “People would rather believe that Jamie is now a Clone or Ai, than the man was just seriously sick and damn near died… Cause he doesn’t look EXACTLY the same??? YOU look different after a bad cold! Smh weirdos.” In another post, he added: “‘Why waste time telling the TRUTH… People prefer a Lie or just let them make up their own stories…’ smh.”

His comments come after Foxx finally spoke out on his situation for the first time. While he didn’t elaborate specifically on the nature of the issue, he did give fans an idea of what he was going through. “I went through something that I thought I would never ever go through,” Foxx said in a video post. “I know a lot of people were waiting, you know, wanting to hear updates, but to be honest with you, I just didn’t want you to see me … with tubes running out of me and trying to figure out if I was going to make it through.”
He also shut down rumors about his health: “By being quiet, sometimes things get out of hand. … Some people said I was blind, but as you can see the eyes are working, the eyes are working just fine. Said I was paralyzed, I’m not paralyzed, but I did go through – I went to hell and back.”
