I just have to say, if someone accuses you of assaulting them, because you hit them with your penis… I don’t know if you should be mortified or proud. Clearly, you’re sporting some length there, if your weapon of choice to smack someone is your penis!
Jamie Foxx is choosing to fight back – legally.
First popularly known for his comedic talent on In Living Color, Foxx isn’t joking around now with the accusation coming from a 2002 incident in Las Vegas.
The woman says her and a friend were at a party at Foxx’s home, when he tried to get her to perform oral sex. The accuser claims when she said “no,” Foxx hit her in the face with his penis. She said one of Foxx’s friends told her she needed to leave. The next day, when she returned to her home in Los Angeles, she states she went to the hospital with a panic attack.
Foxx’s attorney, Allison Hart of Lavely & Singer, has stated…
“Jamie emphatically denies that this incident ever occurred, and he will be filing a report with the Las Vegas Police Department against the woman for filing a false police report against him. The first time [Jamie] became aware of this woman’s absurd claims about an incident that supposedly occurred 16 years ago was when TMZ contacted his representatives [Tuesday] about this story.”
“The alleged incident was not reported to law enforcement in 2002, or at any other time in the last 16 years until last Friday because the incident never happened.”
The reported victim stated the #MeToo movement inspired her to finally file the police report. She also claimed she wanted the alleged incident recorded in case other accusers come forward.
As a woman, I’m torn about this rash of #MeToo reports. My concern is twofold:
- There are women out there blowing things out of proportion (and sometimes making things up), especially in the instances of popular figures, to try to get their 15 minutes of fame (and money). And that this will negatively affect the women out there that are truly sexual assaulted, due to the “Boy who cried wolf” type of syndrome.
- There are a lot of men out there who are going to be falsely accused of sexual assault. Even if these accusations never come to fruition – or are proved to be false – people will typically only remember – Oh! So-and-so was accused of assaulting that woman! — That stigma doesn’t go away easily, even when they’re proven innocent.
All I know is I’ll give Mr. Foxx the benefit of a doubt here, until proven otherwise.
