Eddie Murphy spoke out about his current situation and made comments on his view of the 2 careers compared to Bill Cosby.
“But 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 would have took that bet.” said Murphy.
“Who is America’s dad now?” taking a shot at Bill Cosby.
His response seemed to catch the attention of the now jailed Cosby. He reached out to Murphy via an associate and his comments weren’t reflecting Cosby’s happiness.
“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”
“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,” said the spokesman Andrew Wyatt.
The spokesman wanted to reach Murphy and hopefully explain to him that Cosby felt he was bringing him down, this didn’t seem to be the impression Eddie Murphy was hoping to make.
