So…either Eddie Murphy actually finds this whole scenario funny or he put on a good face for the cameras while fuming on the inside. Either way, it’s interesting to say the least.
While out with his girlfriend Paige Butcher for their usual daily coffee runs (and seriously, they literally get coffee every morning–invest in a coffeemaker, sir) in Los Angeles, Eddie Murphy and his boo encountered a very colorful man. Dressed in a slinky red dress with a rose in hand and a flawless bang, he followed the couple from their coffee spot and offered them a rose. If that wasn’t awkward enough, another man, a heavily bearded black man in a wrap dress at that, walked up to the couple to give them a rose as well (see below).
This could be a comical encounter for most folks (or scary, we’re all different), but in a way, I wouldn’t be surprised if these two men were trying to throw some sort of shade at Murphy. If you’ll recall, it was 1996 when the comedian was arrested for picking up a cross-dressing prostitute in West Hollywood. He claimed that he had stopped and talked with the transvestite because he seem “disjointed” and looked liked he needed help. However, not too many people believed that and it’s a scandal that has followed him since. But let’s just hope these were people looking for some shine and not trying to play him, but either way, it’s definitely a picture that caught our attention. So, how would you caption this pic?
