eddie murphy kcas Eddie Murphy forces an arena of children to sing 'Happy Birthday' to him

Sorry, kids. You voted for him.

Eddie Murphy took home the distinguished nod of “Favorite voice from an animated movie” at the 2011 Kids’ Choice Awards, and after receiving his applause, he noted that it was almost his birthday. (50 years old on April 3!)

Tickled for a moment over his big day, and the futuristic Cosby sweater he was wearing, Murphy then refused depart the stage until the entire auditorium of 10,000-or-so guests sang “Happy Birthday” to him.

Leave it to Eddie Murphy to take a modicum of goodwill and then make everybody regret it.
