Jamie was awful lol. He really thinks he is a triple threa,t he cannot sing nor dance and he is fuglie lol. All the kids were laughing at his attempt to moonwalk what an idiot.

# 3

I thought he was insulting. Completely insulting.

Someone should remind Jamie of Michael’s song lyrics…doesnt matter if your black or white or the song he did with Paul McCartney about racial harmony. He didnt promote belonging to a certain skin colour or divided his fans…ever. So he would not have felt he ‘belonged’ to any one group. He belonged to his family and to his fans around the world across all barriers. Shame on you Jamie. I dont think MJ would have been happy with that statement. Stop playing the race card everytime your at an televised event. Enough already it doesnt help move us forward as a society and doesnt honour the memory of a man whose very being stood for love and acceptance of all.

I’m sorry but the BET awards did a very lame attempt in honoring Michael…. it was just awful… and I do agree with anon, Michael belonged to his family and every fan he had, regardless of race.

WHERE WAS EVERYONE WHEN MICHAEL WAS SAD AND SUFFERING? DEATH IS THE ONLY TIME THAT PEOPLE REMBER PEOPLE. RIP U LEGEND.

I love how they sang the song I’ll Be There, Jaime Foxx and Ne-Yo, was
beautiful.

It would appear that I wasn’t the only one who interpreted his behavior and act a certain way…Jamie Foxx was disgusting, foulmouthed, and an insult to Michael Jackson’s talent and person in death. He has become an arrogant egomaniac and will, ultimately, find his way on the bottom of the pile, again.

I am white. I watch BET!

I get so tired of Jamie Foxx and his racism. I am so over his BS – he perpetuates hate…his foul mouth and lame comic attempts irritated me so much I turned off the program…I just don’t know why he has to be so disgusting…He is a great actor…but I just think he is so full of himself and so rude that it takes away from the raw talent he has…what a disappointment.

Every since Jamie Foxx became a movie actor, he’s been full of himself. He’s a good actor, but I’ve given up watching anything that he’s in.

Just saw him through Youtube, image a white guy saying the same *&^@#! Hell would break loose. Racist stuff that.

@Jen: Well the BET awards had already been finished prior to MJ’s untimely death. So BET had a little less than 3 days to prepare and re-do the show. I think they did alright considering the circumstances.

I was glad to see others recognized the inappropriateness of Jamie Foxx’s comment. Can you imagine how outraged he would have been if a white man stood up in a predominantly white gathering and said about Elvis, “He belongs to us, and we just shared him with everybody else (i.e. everbody who isn’t white).” He ia an angry little hypocrite. Hey Jaime, news flash, life is hard for everybody. White people (whatever that means anymore) are not the enemy and don’t all get to sail through life either – get an education. Should white people also thank you for “sharing” OJ Simpson and any drug/gang-related black criminals? Get a clue Jaime; I hope your friends all told you what a stupid and thoughtless thing that was to say. Racism is ugly no matter what your color.

I’ve only seen snippets of the show and it looked so slap dash…. yes, I know they only had 3 days to prepare. They should have stuck to the original plan and just dedicate the extended half hour to honoring MJ. Acts receiving their awards would have mentioned MJ throughout anyway, plus some were donning his look. Instead it was a rush job that most people found cringeworthy, with the exception of Janet Jackson. Jamie was behaving like he was on speed or something. I really beginning to see how much of an irritating jackass he is. RIP MJ.

I’m not clued up on these people but wasn’t Jamie an actor first then a musician? Or is it the other way round. Then again, maybe a ‘comedian’ (note term used loosely). first? Please inform, guys?

Just wanna say,True beauties are actually among ourselves

“It doesn’t matter if you’re black or white” Jamie. wtf? Why are you so color focused man? Give it up already. We are all equal. Why would you say ‘grown white men fainted?” Anyone fainted. Everyone loved him. It doesn’t matter if you’re black or white.

I don’t hear criticism when Italian, Jewish or irish people say a celeb is” one of ours”. As B;lacks of course we are going to feel a special connection to MJ. In the same way that when a celeb is from a certain hometown like Houston (my hometown) We will say Beyonce , The Quaids, Clint Walker are one ouf ours. I find it puzzling that some whites critisize events like Puerto Rican Day parade or Junettenth parade but have no problem celebrating St. Patrick’s Day(Irish heritage) or they fact that there are Scottish Rite dormitories at UT for girls of Scottish heritage. Most Blacks don’t know our ethnicities we don’ know if our ancestors were from Ghana or Angola or Liberia,etc unlike whites .Most Whites can say my grandmother was Irish or my grandfather was French we can’t so we have to rely on this general holidays to connect. So if you wan’t to end separation then don’t only get read of African American but ItalianAmerican festival, close the NY irish center, close Scottish Rite Dormitory. If you wan’t to get rid of Puerto Rican day parade than we need to get rid of St Patrick’s day parade

What are you talking about fair is fair? Because we are talking about Jamie Foxx and his lame hosting of the BET awards…He offended me and that is the bottom line…He offended others on the board. Your weak attempts to make yet another excuse is transparent.

i strongly dislike jamie foxx, he just comes off as a douche
i think it’s official kristen ruined her looks with this new movie

Hey if you’re as big of a Michael Jackson fan as I am, you definitely want to check out http://www.Billboard.com – great segments displaying his life and impact on the world of music.

I totally stopped watching this a-hole a long time ago I cannot stomach the MF.

U will be missed Michale!

I used to like Jamie Foxx, but ever since I saw this YouTube clip of him completely humiliating this comedian, Doug Williams, I started thinking he was kind of an A$$. Now the more I see of him, the more I dislike him. He could care less about Michael. He’s only cashing in, just like Joe Jackson.
