In case you missed it, the iconic comedian and actor, who was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award, ended his acceptance with a joke that referenced Will’s outburst during the Oscars moments before he slapped Chris Rock on stage.
Eddie Murphy offered a “blueprint” for success to up-and-coming dreamers in the business.
“It’s very simple, just do these three things: Pay your taxes, mind your business — and keep Will Smith’s wife’s name out your f**king mouth!”
Watch the clip below.
Tyrese took to his Instagram account and suggested that Eddie Murphy move on.
The Fast & Furious star also made it clear that he will always support Will Smith, who he considers to be the “biggest influence” in his life.
He captioned his post:
I’m still team WILL SMITH there’s nobody on this earth that will ever influence me to ever have a change of heart towards the BIGGEST INFLUENCE in my life…….
I’m just saying man…. Move on already I just watched EMANCIPATION for the 3rd time I just can’t believe how masterful this overall movie is…. #MyBrothersKeeper
Following Tyrese’s lead, Ray J also took to social media to defend his mentor, Eddie Murphy.
Judging by the venom in his post, Ray J clearly doesn’t care for Tyrese and his “antics.”
Brandy’s brother wrote:
Tyrese better mind his own biz! You not on Eddie level!!! To think you can tell Axel Foley or Hakeem the Prince of Zamunda to “move on already”??
He’s #1 in his acting campaign still to this day! REAL LEGEND! You BETTER show some repsect Tyrese! Before Will slap you back into your reality! – yeah I said it! You know how I feel about you and your antics! Don’t play with my mentors!! It won’t end well!!
