It’s interesting Bill Cosby called out Eddie Murphy.
Early this morning, NY Post ran story about Mr. Cosby is paranoid and also sources inform the site how disappointed Bill Cosby is with the black comedians for the lack of support. Bill Cosby is reportedly “stung” that even Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are refusing to play the race card for him.
I guess it wasn’t enough….Eddie Murphy to not to spoof Cosby during the “Celebrity Jeopardy” sketch that aired as part of “SNL’s” 40th anniversary special back in 2015.
According to a source, the comedian also feels that some of the comedians whom he helped to build their own careers only on (ie Eddie Murphy, Martin Lawrence, Chris Rock and Sinbad) have not supported him.
“Guys like Murphy, Lawrence and Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, guys that he paved the way for- they won’t offer any support.”
“He can’t even pay people to come and support him. He’s been told that agents have informed their clients that their careers would be over if they got involved. We’re not asking anyone to testify. We are asking those whom he’s helped, maybe they can call or come sit in the courtroom and see for themselves what’s happening before turning your back.”
“Jesse [Jackson] claims to have forgotten Bill’s number and Al Sharpton won’t even return his phone calls,” the source inside the camp said.
“Both of them were vocal in their support of Michael Jackson and the charges against Mike involved kids,” the source added. “So, is this really that toxic when you compare the two? Any other time they’d at least rally to say something about innocent until otherwise proven.”
