The 41-year-old funnyman had launched a crude attack on the teen sensation in an episode of his weekly radio show 'The Foxxhole". "Make a sex tape and grow up!" Fox News quoted him as having said on the show.
Responding to the comments, Miley"s dad told talk show host Bonnie Hunt: “It was hurtful, 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."
Although, it"s not clear when Foxx"s comments were made, he later issued an apology on a recent episode of 'The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno, claiming he meant no harm.
