Jamie Foxx’s Bold Fashion Statement
By Julee Wilson
There were plenty of bold fashion statements at Sunday night’s 2013 MTV Movie Awards, like “Pitch Perfect” actress Hana Mae Lee’s crazy cigarette hat. But it was Jamie Foxx’s outfit that really turned heads.
Foxx, who worked the red carpet with his “Django” co-star Kerry Washington and lovely 19-year-old daughter Corinne, donned a t-shirt honoring Trayvon Martin and the Sandy Hook victims. The black shirt included the words “Know Justice, Know Peace” (with an emphasis on “No”) along with a photo of 17-year-old Martin and the 20 people who were killed during the Newtown massacre.
“We’re just thinking about the children… we’re just protecting our kids,” Foxx told MTV’s red carpet hosts, Josh Horowitz and Karlie Kloss, when asked if the shirt was meant to be a political statement.
The 45-year-old star, who won Best WTF Moment and was honored with the Generation award, wore a similar shirt with a photo of Martin at the 2012 BET Awards this past summer.
