Celeb News This Week: Nas Reacts As Eddie Murphy Makes Long-awaited “Saturday Night Live” Return
To say that Eddie Murphy’s “Saturday Night Live” return was hilarious, is only stating the obvious. In fact, there are those who say it will be remembered as one of the show’s best episodes. Kevin Hart even wrote in an Instagram post, “This is such an amazing moment….Woooooooow!!!!! Eddie Murphy was unreal….one of the Best @nbcsnl in years….this photo is LEGENDARY!!!!! All GOATS!!!!!” Nas also reacted on social media, “Couldn’t miss it for the world. Was in front of the tv last night like a little kid. This is GREATNESS”.
However, not everyone was happy with Murphy’s jokes as he returned to “Saturday Night Live” over the weekend. Bill Cosby’s spokesperson, Andrew Wyatt, has responded after Murphy took some time during his monologue to rip into Cosby, who is currently serving a prison sentence for s*#ual assault.
“If you would have told me 30 years ago that I would be this boring stay-at-home house dad and Bill Cosby would be in jail, even I wouldn’t have took that bet,” Murphy jokes as the “SNL” audience laughed.
Not done, Murphy followed up the Cosby joke by imitating Cliff Huxtable, the character the disgraced comedian made famous on “The Cosby Show.” Murphy said as Cliff Huxtable, “Who is America’s Dad now?”
In a statement posted to Cosby’s official social media accounts, spokesperson Wyatt slammed Murphy by writing, “Mr. Cosby broke color barriers in the Entertainment Industry, so that Blacks like Eddie Murphy, Dave Chappelle, 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.”
Wyatt continues, “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.”
