Angry Bill Cosby Responds to Eddie Murphy Mocking and Clowning Him on Saturday Night Life SNL Skit.
Bill Cosby saw Eddie Murphy mocking him in his return to SNL, and he isn’t happy. Bill Cosby responded to Eddie Murphy from Jail with a message through his publicist on Instagram. In the message his Publicist Andrew Wyatt wrote,
“Mr. Cosby became the first Black to win an Emmy for his role in I Spy and Mr. Cosby broke color barriers in the Entertainment Industry, so that Blacks like Eddie Murphy, Dave Chappell, Kevin Hart and et al., could have an opportunity to showcase their talents for many generations to come. It is sad that Mr. Murphy would take this glorious moment of returning to SNL and make disparaging remarks against Mr. Cosby. One would think that Mr. Murphy was given his freedom to leave the plantation, so that he could make his own decisions; but he decided to sell himself back to being a Hollywood Slave.
Stepin Fetchit plus cooning equals the destruction of Black Men in Hollywood. Remember, Mr. Murphy, that Bill Cosby became legendary because he used comedy to humanize all races, religions and genders; but your attacking Mr. Cosby helps you embark on just becoming click bait. Hopefully, you will be amenable to having a meeting of the minds conversation, in order to discuss how we can use our collective platforms to enhance Black people rather than bringing all of us down together”.
The message they are sending is clear, they believe Eddie Murphy will do anything for money, even if it means tearing down another black man. Even a black man that helped break barriers in Hollywood for people like Eddie Murphy to prosper.
While some may read Bill Cosby’s message and only think about the incidents that landed him in prison, there are definitely some valid points being noted in it. It’s definitely sad to see Eddie Murphy and Bill Cosby at odds with each other. Eddie Murphy hasn’t yet responded, but surely he will soon. Story is still developing.
