Jamie Foxx sang the national anthem before “The Fight of the Century” between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao and judging by social media responses the 47-year-old trended for all the wrong reasons.
Scores of people including Larry the Cable Guy took to Twitter to criticize the Oscar winner’s rendition of the ‘Star-Spangled Banner.’
Jamie Foxx killed the national anthem. And by killed it I mean it was like road kill. #PacWins

Jamie Foxx. What a talented singer and actor, what a tremendously terrible version of the American national anthem! #PacquiaoMayweather— Joe Manjón (@Joe_Manjon) May 3, 2015
Pretty sure Roseanne is smiling after that Jamie Foxx performance.

Both Boxers should take the first minute of the 1st round and knock out Jamie Foxx for butchering the Anthem!!

Original thought: Wow, I didn't know Jamie Foxx could sing. Final thought: I was right, Jamie Foxx can't sing. #MayPac
