Andy Cohen Responds After Tituss Burgess Calls Him ‘Messy Queen’ Over Eddie Murphy Question
The ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ star blasts the 51-year-old TV host after he brings up the comedian’s dark past during his appearance on ‘Watch What Happens Live’.
AceShowbiz -It looks like Lil’ Kim is not the only celebrity who thinks badly about Andy Cohen. Following his appearance on “Watch What Happens Live” on Sunday night, July 28, Tituss Burgess took to Instagram to call out the TV host over his “ratchet behavior.”
During the episode, Tituss was asked about his impression on working with Eddie Murphy on the movie “Dolemite Is My Name“. While the 40-year-old had nothing but praises for the comedian, Andy decided to bring up his problematic past. “I just wonder if you got close at all ’cause he was very problematic for the gays at one point when I was coming up,” the host said.
Tituss appeared calm when responding to the statement, but he was clearly pissed when he addressed his appearance on Instagram. Calling Andy a “messy queen,” the “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” star reminded him that his talk show is not “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” before adding, “It’s a place where artists come to talk about art and have a little fun. NOT a place to rehash old rumors or bring a star negative press.”
“Sunday was a display of ratchet behavior by a well connected man having a blatant disregard for one of his guests,” he continued. “If only time were taken to know who I am and not assuming the character I play on TV he would know how to conduct a proper interview with at all! I received 4 Emmy nominations for acting! NOT for being my self. He was lucky I had my wits and Christian values THAT day.”
Tituss concluded his post, “Always keep it classy. Being friends with other talented celebrities doesn’t make you talented it makes you friends with other famous celebrities! He should rip a page from Anderson Cooper and learn how to do his job.”
Andy responded to the diss during his SiriusXM radio show on Monday, suggesting that Tituss might have been pissed when he forgot that the actor was the one who wrote “The Preacher’s Wife” musical. “I’ve done 1300 episodes. Forgive me for forgetting you wrote the musical about ‘The Preacher’s Wife’,” he said, adding, “He made an entertaining show, I’ll tell you that. Sometimes it’s fun to watch the show when the guest hates the host.”
