Baba Booey Fafa Fooey: Thanks for your replies. Academy president Sherak said Ratner had done "the right thing for the academy and for himself". Murphy, who is here filming a movie, issued a one-page statement in response to Thursday's news conference by gay activists and San Francisco Supervisor Tom Ammianowho demanded that Murphy's appearance that evening on "Late Show" with David Letterman be canceled. Take care.
To them, and to everyone I've hurt and offended, I'd like to apologise publicly and unreservedly.
Not so tricky for me. His dad Charles Edward was an amateur comedian and actor on the sides but had a full-time job as a police officer. If Murphy has moved beyond that, good.
I find it especially outrageous when one minority belittles another minority.
