Jamie Foxx Shares A Heartwarming Letter About Marla Gibbs

Jamie Foxx Shares A Heartwarming Letter About Marla Gibbs

Movie star and hip-hop singer Jamie Foxx has shared a photo of black woman legend Marla Gibbs with an emotional letter on Instagram.

In a statement on Instagram, Foxx said:

“As I write this caption, tears are welling up in my eyes…thinking about when she walked into that apartment and delivered those iconic lines, it was reminiscent of how she walked into all of our lives over 40 years ago and changed us forever…with her quick wit and sharp tongue,

she challenged George and us as a society every day. She took a character of service and turned it into a character of strength and honor…she made us laugh…she made us cry… with confidence and ease… and she made us rush to that TV with the knobs on it and tune into her soul.

And now to be in her presence, I am humbled… don’t know how GOD blessed me so much, but I’ll take it… @marlagibbs4real at 88 years young you still take our breath away… #florence #thejeffersons#georgejefferson#backonmyfunnyshit”

Marla Gibbs also re-posted Jamie Foxx‘s post and she replied:

“Jamie you are so sweet and talented and I am truly moved by your kind words! I love you, my family loves you…and the world Loves you!! I’m a fan of yours too and I too appreciate your contribution as an extraordinary artist and human being. Keep it up honey and let’s work together again soon!!”
