Ice-T, the gangsta rap pioneer, has spoken out against the proliferation of unfounded conspiracy theories surrounding Jamie Foxx’s recent health scare. Despite Foxx’s undisclosed medical emergency and subsequent specialized treatment, baseless rumors have surfaced, with some suggesting adverse effects from the COVID-19 vaccination. Ice-T took to Twitter to denounce these conspiracies and advocate for reason and compassion.
Jamie Foxx faced a wave of peculiar conspiracy theories after his undisclosed “medical emergency” earlier this year. The lack of information from Foxx’s family led to rampant speculations online. Some theories alleged that Foxx suffered blindness and partial paralysis due to the COVID-19 vaccination, while others claimed a blood clot from the vaccine triggered a stroke. Throughout this ordeal, Foxx has been quietly receiving medical treatment in Chicago, remaining mostly silent until a recent candid video posted on Instagram.
In the video, Foxx expressed gratitude to his fans and family for their support during his challenging time. He clarified that he chose not to reveal his condition publicly because he did not want his fans to witness him in such a vulnerable state. Foxx addressed the conspiracy theories directly, asserting that he is neither blind nor suffering from paralysis. Despite his candid response, the rumors persisted, with some even suggesting that the person in the video was a clone designed to deceive the public.
Ice-T had had enough of the unsubstantiated rumors and decided to use his platform to criticize the purveyors of these baseless conspiracy theories. In a series of tweets, he lambasted those who would rather believe in clones and artificial intelligence than accept the fact that Foxx faced a severe illness and was on the verge of death.
“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..”
‘Why waste time telling the TRUTH… People prefer a Lie or just let them make up their own stories…’ smh”
In another tweet, Ice-T emphasized, “You have no idea how Dumb or Stupid a person is until they start Talkin.” Emphasizing the lack of logic behind some conspiracy theories. He further pointed out that people often prefer lies or creating their own narratives rather than accepting the truth.
