Eddie Murphy Quits As Oscars Host, Tells Brett Ratner They’re ‘Twinsies’

In every photo like this, there’s always Brian Grazer saying it all with his eyes.

After coming under fire for saying “Rehearsal’s for fags,” Brett Ratner stepped down (Read: Was told to get the fuck out.) as Oscar producer last night paving the way for Eddie Murphy to quit this afternoon because the new producers were probably going to make him rehearse which we’ve all established is homo shit. The New York Times reports:

In the statement, Mr. Murphy said he understood and supported “each party’s decision with regard to a change of producers.”
“I was truly looking forward to being a part of the show that our production team and writers were just starting to develop, but I’m sure that the new production team and host will do an equally great job,” he said.

While this could be a moment to point out the lynch mob mentality of GLAAD and the various nuances of how a douche-balloon like Brett Ratner using the word “fag” is actually good for them, let’s remember two things: 1. Eddie Murphy makes movies like Norbit, and 2. Brett Ratner makes movies that are a watery shit into the eyes and ears of America, if not the world. And now they’re both going nowhere near the Oscars. Right and reason won today, my friends. Cherish it before I write about the Kardashians again. It’ll literally be any minute now.
