BILL COSBY TO EDDIE MURPHY DIDN’T APPRECIATE YOUR ‘SNL’ JAB … You ‘Hollywood Slave!!!’

Published

on

Eddie Murphy made a crack on ‘SNL’ at Bill Cosby‘s expense — and the incarcerated comedian didn’t appreciate it one bit … with his rep calling Ed a “Slave” to Tinseltown.

Cosby’s rep, Andrew Wyatt, posted a scathing response Sunday to Eddie’s joke — and it’s pretty brutal. Wyatt, speaking on behalf of Bill, writes … “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.”

Bill Cosby’s Publicist, Andrew Wyatt, responds to Eddie Murphy’s SNL Monologue: “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.” #NotFunnySNL #SNL #FarFromFinished #FreeBillCosby #BillCosby

Wyatt continues by comparing Eddie to vaudevillian actor Stepin Fetchit, and said “cooning” equals the destruction of black men in Hollywood. Then … he offered a truce of sorts.
