EDDIE! What have you done for me lately!!!?

On the Eddie Murphy AIDS bit from Delirious and growing up.

We were too young and ignorant to know anything of the seriousness of AIDS, because even though we understood that AIDS did kill people, like Eddie Murphy said it did, the people that were killed by AIDS weren’t people that we knew or would ever meet, and so, using Eddie Murphy as our guide, we decided it was more important to make jokes about AIDS than to care about the people that were dying of AIDS, because making people laugh, even if those people were just yourself and your best friend, was so much fun, and, hey, in the end, it wasn’t really our problem.

The thing about Eddie Murphy that I find interesting is that if he were to perform Delirious and RAW in present day he probably wouldn’t be doing Disney movies like he did in the 90’s.
