This is a guy whose 1987 album was the very first to carry an "explicit content" warning sticker. The guy who wrote and performed Cop Killer, Body Count, Home Invasion and Born Dead. Then he apparently decided that there was more money in steady television work and has appeared on more than 450 episodes of Law and Order: SVU. And lately he's decided that there's money in pitching non-car insurance non-coverage and...Honey Nut Cheerios.
At which point, we all need to apologize to Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, and all the other black entertainers we ever denounced for selling out for the mass audience. Because doing Superman III and Brewster's Millions and The Toy wasn't selling out. Performing in Doctor Doolittle and playing a nameless donkey in Shrek wasn't selling out. Not compared to this....whatever the heck this is.
