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.
