BREAKING: Eddie Murphy Follows Brett Ratner And Pulls Out Of Oscars

- By Bossip Staff

Eddie Murphy is leaving the Oscars in support of his buddy Brett Ratner.

Here’s his statement:

“First and foremost I want to say that I completely understand and support each party’s decision with regard to a change of producers for this year’s Academy Awards ceremony,” Murphy said earlier today. “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.”

Aw, well that’s a shame. We understand the Eddie wanted to work with his long-time collaborator, but we sure would have loved to see what they would have come up with. Oh well. Blame Ratner and his big mouth.
