BET Awards host Jamie Foxx used his platform to speak on violence in America. Foxx believes that today’s society has almost become numb to violence especially among youth.

“We all have to figure out a way to not become too used to what’s going on right now”, he said to the audience. Foxx even reminisced on Biggie and 2Pac’s murders, saying that he was in the area when they both were killed. “We got to figure something out”, Foxx reiterated. In recent news, there have been acts of senseless violence, which continues to make national headlines. Foxx urges entertainers to spread awareness with hopes that people will heed the message.
