Eddie Murphy revealed details about his grudge against "Saturday Night Live," on which he was a cast member from 1980 to 1984, in an interview with Rolling Stone.
"They were shitty to me on ‘Saturday Night Live’ a couple of times after I’d left the show," he said, according to the piece. "They said some shitty things. There was that David Spade sketch [in which Spade showed a picture of Murphy around the time of ‘Vampire in Brooklyn’ and said, ‘Look, children, a falling star’]. I made a stink about it, it became part of the folklore."
Murphy added, “Now, I don’t have none of that," according to the piece. He has not been on the show in years and has refused to participate in retrospectives, the story notes.
Murphy, who has rarely given in-depth interviews in recent years, also talks about a possible change of direction in his career. The comedian says he has no interest in continuing to make family movies, and indicates he’s likely to to get back to doing stand-up, “eventually.” Murphy last performed stand-up comedy in the late 1980s, the story notes.
