Jamie Foxx’s representatives deny Covid-19 vaccination caused his hospitalization
Representatives of actor and comedian Jamie Foxx have refuted allegations that his recent hospitalization was linked to side effects from a Covid-19 vaccine. Dismissing the claims as “completely wrong,” the denial followed rumors linking Foxx’s hospital admission to a vaccine, citing partial paralysis and blindness.
Conspiracy theories and misinformation
Hollywood gossip columnist AJ Benza originally made the unsubstantiated claim during a podcast, alleging that Foxx had been vaccinated while working on a movie set. Benza claimed that Foxx received the vaccine and suffered a “blood clot to the brain,” leaving him partially paralyzed and blind. Although Foxx’s representatives have strongly denied the rumors, conspiracy theories have continued to spread across social media and far-right online forums.
Internet commentators weigh in
Controversial political commentator Candace Owens shared the theory, suggesting that the allegation might have some truth to it. Turning Point USA co-founder Charlie Kirk also waded into the discussion, criticizing “big pharma” and claiming that a movie set ordered “dairy cow clots injected.”
Rumors and speculation about Foxx’s health
Foxx was hospitalized in April following a “medical complication.” While rumors circulated regarding his health, a source close to the family revealed that friends and family were “hoping for the best.” In May, Foxx’s daughter Corinne dismissed rumors, revealing that her father had been out of the hospital for “weeks.”
Foxx breaks his silence
After a period of relative silence, Foxx thanked fans for their support on social media, revealing that he was “on the mend.” Although the cause of his medical complication remains undisclosed, rumors linking his hospitalization to a Covid-19 vaccine have been dismissed by his representatives.
