Bill Cosby 'Applauds' Eddie Murphy for Not Mocking Him on 'SNL 40'
While Bill Cosby has remained mostly silent as dozens of rape accusations plague him, the comedy legend is now speaking out on one thing: He doesn't like people making fun of Bill Cosby.
Norm Macdonald recently revealed Eddie Murphy was considering portraying Cosby in SNL 40's Celebrity Jeopardy sketch, but opted not to at the last minute. Kenan Thompson ended up playing Cosby in a quick segment that featured him mixing drinks.
"I am very appreciative of Eddie and I applaud his actions," Cosby said through a spokesperson to NBC.
According to Macdonald's tweets, Murphy decided not to go ahead with the sketch because "he will not kick a man when he is down. Eddie Murphy, I realize, is not like the rest of us. Eddie does not need the laughs."
