Jamie Foxx is addressing a fight that took place at Los Angeles restaurant, Catch, on Saturday night. The brawl made headlines on Monday, with some media outlets reporting that the fight was pretty violent. However, the actor and comedian took to Instagram to address the rumors and show off his jacked-up eye.
Jamie and his entourage reportedly got into it with patrons from another table while enjoying dinner at Catch restaurant on Saturday night. A group of men near Foxx's table began complaining that the Oscar-winner's group was being too loud.
An insider said, "There were some words exchanged, then some pushing and shoving, and security moved in pretty fast and the table of random guys were escorted out."
The 49-year-old actor addressed the rumors and wanted to give his 'perspective' on what really went down at the restaurant.
Jamie took to Instagram on Monday evening, January 9 to share a video of himself addressing the assault. "F**k," he said to the camera while holding a white towel to cover his eye. "The word is out, man. I know y'all heard about this s**t and saw some videos. I just want to address what happened on Saturday from my perspective."
"All I was trying to do was keep my eye on things," he added, before removing the towel to reveal his crossed eye. "I'm just f**king with y'all, man. Everybody's good," he continued. "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" actor then revealed that he's kidding, saying, "2017, we don't want no violence. We don't want to get hurt and we don't want nobody hurt."
"But if you want to see my whoop some a**, you know what you can do," he continued. "Come check me. Friday the thirteenth. 'Sleepless'," he said, promoting his new action thriller movie. He then turned the camera to a poster of his upcoming movie. "Come see your boy kick some a** for real," he added.
Foxx posted the hilarious video with the caption, "Gotta set the record straight. Can't we all just get along? East coast west coast! Remember when they push and shove it's only love! #icecubevoice #backonmyfunnyshit #sleepless this Friday the 13th! "
