Know your lgbt history - Eddie Murphy

Eddie Murphy is a brilliant comedian who has not really received his due but let's not forget how ugly his routine used to be.

In this clip (starting at .40 seconds), Murphy's comments about gay men and the audience's appreciation of those comments gives a perfect example of how just how far the lgbt community has come.

If some comedian would dare to say some this stuff now, he would be roasted.

Which goes to prove that so-called "political correctness" has its good points.

And by the way, I am not going to go into detail about that 1997 incident with Murphy being caught with a transsexual prostitute in his car. Nothing was proven and he was not arrested. Also, in all honesty, Murphy had already apologized for his nasty anti-gay humor long before the incident took place.

I remembered enough to stop watching after a minute.
Watching this with a bunch of people who ARE laughing can be a little unsettling, especially if you're not out to them.

Holy shnikeys! That's blood curdling. Reminds me of the shock I experienced when I actually listened to the lyrics of "Money for Nothing" by Dire Straits.

yes it was something back in the day. and it was 2 trans "working" women that eddie were busted over. the 2nd incident the enquirer posted a pic of their first story.
I'm surprised you didnt cover harlem nights and why arsenio hall's character was even written into that film. or coming to america with arsenio in drag. ROTFLMAO.

What about Eddie playing not one but *two* women in the remake of The Nutty Professor and The Nutty Professor 2?
