Eddie Murphy insists he never 'made fun' of Michael Jackson

The comedian imitated the late King of Pop during his days on Saturday Night Live in the early '80s. But during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday, Eddie argued that his impersonation was always "funny". "If you look at the stuff I did on Michael, it was never mean-spirited. It was always funny stuff, because I knew him. I never made fun of him." "But I wasn't making fun of him. He was Michael and I was doing funny Michael." Eddie also claimed Michael's real speaking voice was lower than what he used in public.
