Eddie Murphy marked his first appearance on the Saturday night mainstay in 35 years by taking a jab at Cosby while

he was talking about how he’s changed since his last SNL appearance.

Murphy said, “My kids are pretty much my whole life now but if you would have told me 30 years ago I would be this

boring, stay-at-home house dad and Bill Cosby would be in jail, even I would have taken that bet.” He then imitated

Cosby’s voice, calling himself “America’s Dad.”

Cosby’s rep, Andrew Wyatt, posted a savage response Sunday to Eddie’s joke. Wyatt, speaking on behalf of Bill,

wrote, “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.”

He went on to say, “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.”

Andrew Wyatt also went on to comparing Eddie to vaudevillian actor Stepin Fetchit and said “cooning” equals the

destruction of black men in Hollywood.

Wyatt went on to invite Eddie to meet with Bill in hopes of “having a meeting of the minds” to help the black

community instead of tearing it down.

Bill Cosby was found guilty of aggravated indecent assault in 2018 and is currently serving a 3 to 10-year prison

sentence.
