Outrage: Eddie Murphy Refused to Impersonate Bill Cosby on 'Saturday Night Live' Special

By Robert Paul Reyes

Eddie Murphy turned down a suggestion that he impersonate Bill Cosby during the 40th anniversary Saturday Night Live special.


This would have been the highlight of the "Saturday Night Live" special -- nobody does Cosby better than Murphy, unless it`s the devil himself.

It wasn`t respect or sympathy for Cosby that prompted Murphy to reject the offer, Murphy hates the holier-than-thou hypocrite as much as any other self-respecting black man.

Murphy was afraid that if he impersonated the disgraced comic, it would only serve to remind his fans of his own checkered past. Remember the seamy saga of Murphy and the transsexual prostitute, anyone?

Bill Cosby said he was grateful that Eddie Murphy rejected the offer to impersonate him. I hope both of these clowns rot in hell.
