Probably the only time PETA and I will agree

The actor [Jamie Foxx] told US TV news show Access Hollywood: “It’s a cultural thing … I used to see dogs fighting in the neighborhood all the time … Mike probably just didn’t read his handbook on what not to do as a black star”.

Foxx’s comments have enraged People for The Ethical Treatment of Animals president Ingrid Newkirk, who has blasted the actor for attempting to justify Vick’s sordid secret life.

It is cheap and dirty and wrong to call this a cultural thing, unless Foxx believes that cruelty is a black thing – when it isn’t,” she said.

It may be his thing, but it is not a black thing.

What the fuck is all that about, Jamie Foxx?   Seriously—you need to explain yourself here.
