NEW YORK -- Twets Norm Macdonald's Twitter feed may explain why there was so little Eddie Murphy on the 40th anniversary "Saturday Night Live" special.
One of the biggest reactions to the historic show was why was there so little of the man who was such a big part of keeping the show alive back in the 1980s.
Macdonald said on Twitter that Eddie Murphy was supposed to be part of the "Jeopardy" sketch, specifically as Bill Cosby at the end of the sketch mixing a cocktail.
Macdonald said that Murphy had originally agreed to do it, but at the last minute changed his mind saying "the laughs are not worth it" and "he will not kick a man when he is down."
Keenan Thompson stepped in and did Cosby at the last minute.
In a statement released to NBC News through a spokesperson, Cosby said: "I am very appreciative of Eddie and I applaud his actions."
Cosby is accused of sexual assault by more than 20 women.
