The jokes were funny, but the subject matter was not.
That, essentially, is why Eddie Murphy refused to participate in a skit skewering Eddie Murphy on the recent SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE 40th anniversary special.
“If you get up there and you crack jokes about him, you’re just hurting people,” Murphy tells The Washington Post in a new interview.
“You’re hurting him. You’re hurting his accusers. I was like, ‘Hey, I’m coming back to ‘SNL’ for the anniversary, I’m not turning my moment on the show into this other thing.’ ”
Back in February, the BEVERLY HILLS COP star was asked to spoof Cosby in a CELEBRITY JEOPARDY sketch, co-written by Norm MacDonald.
At first he agreed, but later backed out.
