Bill Cosby’s publicist, Andrew Wyatt, answers SNL monologue Eddie Murphy: Cosby became the first black to win an Emmy for his role in I Spy, and Mr. Cosby overcame the color barriers in the entertainment industry, so blacks like Eddie Murphy, Dave Chappell, Kevin Hart et al. Could have the opportunity to showcase their talents for many future generations. It is sad that Mr. Murphy will seize this magnificent moment of returning to the SNL and make disparaging remarks against Mr. Cosby. One would think that Mr. Murphy was given the freedom to leave the plantation so that he could make his own decisions; but he decided to sell himself back to Hollywood slavery. Stepin Fetchit plus cunniling equals the destruction of the Black People 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 become just a bait. We hope that you can have a conversation about the mind to discuss how we can use our collective platforms to improve black people, and not to bring us all together. ”

Remember, Mr. Murphy, that Bill Cosby became legendary because he used comedy to humanize all races, religions and genders; but your forward Mr. Cosby helps you become just a bait. ”
Wyatt claimed that Cosby overcame color barriers, paving the way for comedians such as Dave Chappel and Kevin Hart. Cosby, a publicist, said he hoped Murphy would “fit the mind talk” to discuss ways to use their collective platforms “to improve black people, not to bring us all together.”
“#NotFunnySNL #SNL #FarFromFinished #FreeBillCosby #BillCosby,” read the hashtags.
The statement comes after Murphy returns to SNL after 35 years. During her first soliloquy, the star Dolemite Is My Name laughed at the expense of Cosby.
“In fact, my children are almost my whole life. And you know that if you told me 30 years ago that I would be this boring family father and Bill Cosby would be in prison? Even I would take this bet, “Murphy said, before imitating the classic Cosby character in the Cliff Huckstable series:” Who is America’s dad now? “
Cosby is serving a sentence of imprisonment from three to 10 years after being convicted in April 2018 of three cases of indecent aggravated assault for drugs and sexual violence against a woman in 2004.
The hostility of Murphy and Cosby to each other is not new. In his 1987 film “Eddie Murphy Row,” Murphy explained that he had been called by Cosby, whom he considered his comedic idol at the time, and condemned his comedy for vulgarity.
“I’m a big fan of Bill Cosby,” Murphy said in a special issue. “I never met this man, but he called me about a year ago and scolded me on the phone because I was too dirty on stage. It was really strange because I never met him, and he just thought that he should call me because he was Bill and tell me that this is not what a comedy is. I sat and listened to this man punish me, and when Bill Cosby punishes you, you forget that you have grown up, you feel like one of Cosby’s children. ”
Most recently, Murphy discussed Cosby’s criticism in the July episode of Netflix’s “Comedians in Cars That Get Coffee.”
“I (Cosby) had a strange thing that he didn’t have with other comics,” Murphy told presenter Jerry Seinfeld. “It was mean. He was not nice. He did not do this with everyone, he did it on purpose with me. He was with me.
