Bill Cosby Responds to Eddie Murphy's Refusal to Play Him at 'SNL 40': 'I Applaud His Actions'

Bill Cosby has issued a statement now that news broke that Eddie Murphy refused to play him in a sketch during SNL 40 this past weekend.

“I am very appreciative of Eddie and I applaud his actions,” the 77-year-old comedian, who has multiple sexual abuse allegations against him, said in a statement to NBC.

In case you missed it, read the series of tweets from former SNL cast member Norm MacDonald, who explained the entire situation surrounding Eddie‘s refusal to portray Cosby.

Instead of playing any characters, Eddie simply spoke on stage for a few moments at the 40th anniversary celebration.

    Eddie Murphy has got his own sex scandals. Bill Cosby shouldn’t be so happy about that kind of support being thrown his way.

    evil and ignorant statement. I hope you and your kid gets AIDS and dies a slow death just before being gang raped.

    I hope that someone does to your daughter(s) what that rapist Bill Cosby did to all those women!

    He is pathetic. All these years pretending to be a good guy and secretly people shouldn’t have trusted him around their female kids.

    Eddie Murphy was very boring on Saturday Night Live recently.

    Very boring!

    Bill Cosby rapes women. Watch out ladies or he’ll Cosby you!

    Bill Cosby is a rapist! He rapes women against their will. He is a sex criminal. A pervert psychopath.
