Tituss Burgess has been trending online after the epic shade thrown at What What Happens Live host Andy Cohen after Andy asked a loaded question about comedian Eddie Murphy.

Cohen asked Burgess about working with Murphy on the upcoming Dolemite flick, Dolemite Is My Name. "Did you get to chat with him at all?" Cohen asked. "He was very problematic for the gays at one point when I was coming up."

But Tituss was not here for the shenanigans:

"He wasn't problematic for Tituss, and we had a wonderful time … Any troubles he may have had with gay people I guess are gone because he loved me," Burgess said, as he mouthed something to somebody off-camera, visibly irritated.

Cohen noticed and asked him, "What are you saying, Tituss?" To which Burgess responded, "Keep going, girl. Do your show."

Via Instagram, Tituss continued to get Andy together:

"Sunday was a display of ratchet behavior by a well connected man having blatant disregard for one of his guests," he wrote. "If only time were taken to know who I am and not assuming that I am 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 continued. "He was lucky I had my wits and Christian values THAT day. Always keep it classy. Being friends with other talented celebrities doesn't make you friends with other famous celebrities! He should rip a page from Anderson Cooper and learn how to do his job."

Murphy has already apologized for his homophobic jokes in the mid-'90s
