Jennifer Aniston has turned off comments on her Instagram profile days after she supposedly liked Jamie Foxx’s controversial Instagram post.

Last week, Jamie posted a message on the site that read: ‘They killed this dude called Jesus…what do you think they’ll do to you???!’ and used the hashtags #fakefriends and #fakelove.

Many people took this as an antisemitic post, as some believe that the Jewish people are to blame for the death of Jesus in the Bible.

People also claimed they saw the Friends actress like this post, as an account using the name Jennifer Aniston supposedly liked it.

There are various accounts on the social media app that use the name ‘Jennifer Aniston’ in their bio.

The actress quickly denied being involved in the scandal, taking to her Instagram stories to write: ‘This really makes me sick. I did not ”like” this post on purpose or by accident. And more importantly, I want to be clear to my friends and anyone hurt by this showing up in their feeds – I do NOT support any form of antisemitism. And I truly don’t tolerate HATE of any kind. Period.’

Jamie deleted the offending post, writing an explanation in its place. ‘I want to apologise to the Jewish community and everyone who was offended by my post. I now know my choice of words have caused offence and I’m sorry. That was never my intent,’ the post read.

The Ray actor clarified that he was ‘betrayed by a fake friend’ and that’s who he was calling out with the post, ‘not anything more.’

‘I only have love in my heart for everyone. I love and support the Jewish community,’ he continued.

Celebrities like model Winnie Harlow and rapper Waka Flocka spoke out supporting Jamie saying it was clear that he wasn’t trying to be antisemitic.

Other Twitter users agreed, with one writing: ‘Any black person growing up in the south will tell you that Jamie Foxx wasn’t referring to Jewish people.’

But many were grateful for the apology, like the National Director and CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, Jonathan Greenblatt, who took to Twitter to thank Jamie for his ‘clarification.’

He added: ‘We wish him well as he recovers from his prior hospitalisation.’

In April, Jamie’s daughter Corinne announced her father was in the hospital for a medical emergency. Eventually he was moved to a rehab facility in Chicago.

Last month he posted a video where he thanked fans for their support, saying he’d been to ‘hell and back’ and was thankful for his doctors and his family.
