Eddie Murphy mocked Will Smith’s infamous Oscars slap at the Golden Globe Awards on Tuesday.
The 61-year-old legendary actor took a jab at Smith for slapping Chris Rock across the face after storming the stage during the 2022 Oscars. “I want to let you know that there is a definitive blueprint that you can follow to achieve success, prosperity, longevity and peace of mind,” Murphy said.
“There’s a blueprint, and I followed it my whole career. It’s very simple, it’s three things,” he went on to say. “You just do these three things: Pay your taxes. Mind your business … And keep Will Smith’s wife’s name out of your fucking mouth!”
