Jamie. Jamie. Jamie. What are we going to do with you, Mr. Jamie Foxx?
If you heard any of the advertisements leading up to the 2012 Soul Train Awards, held in Las Vegas for the first time ever, host Cedric the Entertainer's tag line warned audiences, "What happens in Vegas will be televised!"
And it was.
The show had been taped only a few days after the election, and granted, democrats were still running on happy fumes; but did Jamie Foxx actually think he could go unscathed after making this comment,
"It's like church over here. It's like church in here," the Oscar winning actor told the audience. "First of all, give an honor to God and our Lord and savior Barack Obama."
He then encouraged the crowd to stand to their feet. While those in the audience cheered in response to Foxx's comments, others found the remarks offensive.
"Practicing Christians are not amused by the portrayal of modern secular politicians as replacements for Jesus. But presumably their feelings don't count, because they won't burn anything doing in outrage," John Hayward, from conservative blog Human Events, wrote.
