Watch: Jamie Foxx Films the Moment He's Called the N-Word

The actor was verbally attacked with the racial slur in Croatia.

Published February 22, 2017

Jamie Foxx is used to being greeted by paparazzi and adoring fans when he travels the world, but the Oscar winner had a very different experience in Croatia yesterday.

The Sleepless star was dining in a restaurant in Dubrovnik with a group of friends when two Croatian men hurled a racial slur at him. Interestingly, Foxx captured the whole thing on video.

As we can see in Foxx's video, two middle-aged men, identified as 44 and 50 years old, call the actor a "crnuga," which according to Total Croatia News is Croation for "n****r." The two men have reportedly been arrested by Croatian police and charged with disorderly conduct for targeting "one of the guests on racial grounds."

  1. Jamie arrived in Croatia earlier this week to shoot a movie:

  2. Unfortunately, he ran into some bad apples while dining out at a local restaurant. Jamie tried to make light of the incident, but the video is pretty shocking:
  3. The next day, Jamie posted another video with a positive message and an appreciation for the beauty of Croatia:

Pretty impressed with the way Jamie handled himself in that situation.
