Bill Cosby’s Publicist Calls Eddie Murphy A “Hollywood Slave” Following His Joke On SNL

Bill Cosby has been known as America’s dad for as long as we can remember, and his publicist, Andrew Wyatt would like to keep it that way! Apparently, Bill and his team did not take well to a joke #EddieMurphy made during his SNL appearance, and things got little heated on the ‘gram.

In an Instagram post, Wyatt goes off on Eddie Murphy, comparing his joke and his appearance to being back in slavery. He asserts that black entertainers should be grateful to Bill, who walked so they could run, and even calls Eddie a ‘Hollywood Slave’.

“It is sad that Mr. Murphy would take this glorious moment of returning to SNL and make disparaging remarks against Mr. Cosby,” he says. “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.”

Bill Cosby’s Publicist, Andrew Wyatt, responds to Eddie Murphy’s SNL Monologue: “Mr. Cosby became the first Black to win an Emmy for his role in I Spy and Mr. Cosby broke color barriers in the Entertainment Industry, so that Blacks like Eddie Murphy, Dave Chappell, 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. Stepin Fetchit plus cooning equals the destruction of Black Men 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 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.” #NotFunnySNL #SNL #FarFromFinished #FreeBillCosby #BillCosby

Eddie starts his set off speaking about all of his accomplishments this year, and says one of the greatest things that happened was the birth of his 10th child! That’s when things took a turn, as he came for Bill’s status as America’s dad.

“My kids are actually pretty much my life now. But if you would have told me 30 years ago I would be some boring, stay at home house dad, and Bill Cosby would be in jail, even I would’ve taken that bet,” he says. And in his best Bill impression, Eddie says “Who is America’s dad now?!”

Fans have reacted positively to the joke, saying it was actually funny. But Wyatt is not here for it at all. His post continues saying:

“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 un just becoming sick bait. Hopefully, you will be amenable to have 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.”
