Jamie Foxx Says Anthem Performance Was Not 'A Sin Against America'

Jamie Foxx is defending his mocked national anthem performance at the Floyd Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao fight.

In an appearance on the 'Ellen DeGeneres Show', Foxx said a malfunction was to blame for being "a little off."

He said his earpieces went out so he couldn't hear the music over the crowd noise.

"I can't hear what the organ is doing with the big crowd," Foxx said. "So some of it was a little off, but in the arena it killed. The telecast was a little off."

Later, in an interview on Entertainment Tonight, the actor said after he listened to a playback, he would say he committed "a sin against America."

Foxx added he received compliments from Denzel Washington and many others.
