Ice-T has hit out at people who are speculating that Jamie Foxx is now a “clone or AI” after the actor posted a video update on his health.
On Friday, Foxx posted a video to Instagram in which he thanked his fans for their support over the past few months.
The “Unpredictable” singer experienced a “medical complication” while filming his upcoming Netflix film, “Back in Action,” in Atlanta, Georgia, in April.
“Thank you to everybody that just prayed man, and sent me messages,” Foxx said in his video. “I cannot even begin to tell you how far it took me and how it brought me back.”
The Oscar-winning actor did not reveal what the health scare was, but said he “went through something that I thought I would never ever go through.”
Following his post, people on social media began speculating that it wasn’t really Foxx in the video and that it was instead a clone or some form of artificial intelligence, mainly because he looked slightly different than before he was ill.
Reacting to such comments, Ice-T called those making them “weirdos.”
“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???” the legendary rapper tweeted on Sunday.
“YOU look different after a bad cold!” he added.
Ice-T wasn’t the only person to point out that being sick can change your appearance.
“He got very sick. That can make you look really rough,” tweeted one user.
Another wrote: “In Jamie Foxx defense. When you were in the hospital for a long time, you don’t eat as much and tend to lose weight.”
