Why is Jamie Foxx calling Spike Lee out?

Spike Lee has come out strongly against the movie Django Unchained. Jamie Foxx recently made the scathing remarks about Lee. Fox told The Guardian, “Where’s Spike Lee coming from?” “He didn’t like Whoopi Goldberg, he doesn’t like Tyler Perry, he doesn’t like anybody, I think he’s sort of run his course. I mean, I respect Spike, he’s a fantastic director. But he gets a little shady when he’s taking shots at his colleagues without looking at the work. To me, that’s irresponsible.” So what do you think is Lee expressing an honest opinion or is he just taking shots at a new generation of actors and directors?

    Spike is a racist and a bigot. Why do people pay attention to the rants of a racist who hates on anyone or anything that infringes on “his” realm, i.e. entertaining Black America? If he really wants to express his displeasure with artists he should meet with them face to face and do it in private. I know Spike hasn’t done anything recently but I’m sure Jamie or Tyler would be happy to treat him to lunch so they could discuss their differences.
