Foxx is taking some heat after using the Biblical title for Jesus Christ to describe Obama at the 2012 Bet Soul Train Awards.
During the show, Foxx took to the stage to praise Obama when he used the godlike terminology, E! News reports. "It's like church over here. It's like church in here. First of all, give an honor to God and our Lord and Savior Barack Obama," he said to the audience.
E! News notes that the Soul Train Awards aired Sunday night, but was filmed in Las Vegas just days after the president won reelection in November.
Foxx's comments incited furor in some Christian groups after the show aired on Bet.
