And to think, it was just a joke.
After dissing Miley Cyrus on his Foxxhole Sirius radio show last weekend, a contrite Jamie Foxx appeared on Tuesday's Tonight Show and told Jay Leno – and Miley and the millions of those watching – "I so apologize … and this is sincere. I am a comedian, and you guys know that whatever I say, I don't mean any of it. And sometimes, as comedians, as we do, we go a little bit too far."
The Ray Best Actor Oscar winner, 41, had previously advised the Hannah Montana star, 16, to "get like Britney Spears and do some heroin. Do like Lindsay Lohan and start seeing a lesbian and get some crack in your pipe. Catch chlamydia on a bicycle seat."

Oh. Snap. Jamie Foxx had some choice words for Miley Cyrus on his weekend Sirius radio show The Foxxhole.
When the on-air conversation veered toward the 16-year-old pop star, Foxx, 41, asked: "Who is Miley Cyrus?"
As someone explained Cyrus is the star of the popular Hannah Montana franchise, Foxx quipped, "The one with all the gums? She's got to get a gum transplant!"
