Billy Ray Cyrus is fuming after Jamie Foxx urged his superstar daughter Miley to "make a sex tape... do some heroin... and become a lesbian," dubbing the Oscar winner's comments "hurtful."

Foxx has apologized for the remarks made on his Foxxhole radio show last weekend, insisting he made the joke as a comedian.

He said, "There was a situation with Miley Cyrus, and I just want to say, I apologize for what I said. I didn't mean it maliciously. You know I'm a comedian. You know my heart. Miley, I apologize, so I'll call you. I got a daughter too, so I completely understand."

But Cyrus Senior isn't taking the comments about 16-year-old Miley lightly and is disgusted by the Soloist actor's behavior.

The country star complains, "It was hurtful. There wasn't nothing (sic) funny about it. And, quite frankly, I think if I said those things about his daughter, he might not find it so comedic."
