Eddie Murphy chose not to make fun of Bill Cosby's rape scandal on the Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Special.

In case you hadn't heard, former cast member Norm Macdonald explained that Eddie backed off of the controversial sketch idea.

And the gesture did not go unnoticed.

Though Cosby has remained mostly silent throughout the storm of allegations — apart from the occasional off-color joke — he did have something to say to Eddie.

Through a spokesperson, Cosby told the media:

"I am very appreciative of Eddie and I applaud his actions."

We're not sure Cosby is the man you want applauding your actions at the moment.

Whether Eddie nixed the sketch out of respect or mercy or just to steer clear of controversy, we can't know until he gives his side.

But if his intention was the thanks of a grateful accused rapist, he got it.
