Eddie Murphy Has Remorse Over Past Comedy Routines
Eddie Murphy is on the verge of one of the biggest comedic comebacks of his career, but he has changed a lot and now has remorse over his past comedy routines.
According to the New York Times, the 58-year old actor/comedian revealed that his stand up special Raw is tough to watch now.
As you know in the 1987 stand up classic he talked about topics that might have been offensive to race, gender, and homosexual stereotypes and even joked about the AIDS epidemic.
In 1996 he apologized for his jokes about the AIDS epidemic,
I deeply regret any pain all this has caused. Just like the rest of the world, I am more educated about AIDS in 1996 than I was in 1981. I think it is unfair to take the words of a misinformed 21-year-old and apply them to an informed 35-year-old man.
I can definitely see why Murphy would feel that way because of the "Cancel Culture" where individuals would try to silence or boycott an individual because their opinion may be questionable or isn't popular.
Make no mistake Murphy isn't afraid of "Cancel Culture", but he would like to forget some of his older material.
We will see if Murphy still has the funny as his Netflix movie Dolemite Is My Name comes out October 4, and he will host Saturday Night Live December 21 and let's not forget the Coming 2 America Sequel.
