Daily Loud Apology Jamie Foxx Health

Jamie Foxx's health scare and hospitalization has been one of the most worrisome and talked-about stories in pop culture this year. With so much uncertainty and fear surrounding his status, it can be tough to know which news to trust and what is just hearsay. Moreover, fans and audiences everywhere fell subject to the worst example of this so far. Reports from many sources indicated that his family was "preparing for the worst," despite other sources providing promising updates on his recovery. As a result, Daily Loud recently took to Twitter to apologize for scaring fans with one of many misleading reports on his status.

"We would like to apologize for the misinformation regarding Jamie Foxx's condition we unfortunately though the source we had was real but it was not," their account tweeted. "We are sorry to Jamie and his family for our actions here and continue to wish him nothing but good health. Sorry for letting our followers down as well. We will do better in the future and will make sure every source is properly fact checked from here on."

Jamie Foxx Is Recuperating & Well; Daily Loud's Apology For Misleading Coverage

Furthermore, it should be noted that Daily Loud is not solely to blame for these misleading reports. In fact, outlets like our own and many others reported on the foreboding news, despite acknowledging how it strangely conflicted with other updates. As fans take a breath and relax following this clarification, celebrities and fans from all over continue to send their well-wishes to Jamie Foxx and his family. Of course, many on social media blasted these outlets for their work, and rightfully so. Hopefully this is a sign to depend more on sources legitimately close to the star actor, especially given how his daughter had to clear the air.

"Update from the family: Sad to see how the media runs wild," Corinne Foxx wrote on her Instagram Story. "My Dad has been out of the hospital for weeks, recuperating. In fact, he was playing pickleball yesterday! Thanks for everyone’s prayers and support! We have an exciting work announcement coming next week too!"
