Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick accepted a plea deal from the federal government last week after he was indicted on charges related to funding an interstate dog fighting operation and viciously executing dogs when they became no longer able to fight. Jamie Foxx says Michael Vick was black, so he didn’t know it was wrong.
It’s a cultural thing, I think,” Jamie said. “Most brothers didn’t know that, you know. I used to see dogs fighting in the neighborhood all the time. I didn’t know that was Fed time. So, Mike probably just didn’t read his handbook on what not to do as a black star. I know that cruelty to animals is bad, but sometimes people shoot people and kill people and don’t get time,” Jamie continued. “I think in this situation, he really didn’t know the extent of it, so I always give him the benefit of the doubt.”
Jamie Foxx is one of the most delusional assholes in Hollywood, so it really doesn’t surprise me that he’d say some idiotic crap like this. Yeah, that’s what it was. Michael Vick didn’t know. He didn’t know it wasn’t cool to fight dogs to the death then electrocute them. He didn’t know that it might be considered illegal. Turns out the federal government does. That’s why I just stick with fighting squirrels. George Bush don’t care about squirrels.
Speaking of dogs, Jamie Foxx hit this (Eva Longoria in L.A. on August 22):
