Miley Cyrus and Billy Ray Cyrus Jamie Foxx and his daughter Corrine

Billy Ray Cyrus himself has finally publicly addressed the comments Jamie Foxx made about Cyrus’ 16-year-old daughter Miley on The Foxxhole, Foxx’s popular radio show in Sirius XM Satellite Radio. Jamie has since then apologized for making the statements, saying that he didn’t mean what he said.

“It was hurtful,” Billy Ray said on Thursday’s “Bonnie Hunt Show,” according to Us Weekly. “There wasn’t nothing funny about it. And, quite frankly, I think if I said those things about his daughter, he might not find it so comedic.”

Earlier this week, a source told E! News that Billy Ray wasn’t pleased to hear what Foxx had said about his daughter. “He thinks Jamie was out of line and didn’t find any humor in it,” the source said, pointing out that Miley had even met Foxx at the “Kids’ Inaugural Concert” in January. “He doesn’t understand why he would do that to Miley, especially since he has a teenage daughter himself.”
