Michelle Beadle Mixed Up J.B. Smoove And Charlie Murphy In The Wake Of The Latter's Premature Passing
Classic character on an all-time show? Check.
Whew, now that I have laid it all out I am surprised there are people out there that didn't make this mistake!
In all seriousness, this is inexcusable. I - like most - am a Michelle Beadle fan, but you absolutely cannot mix up J.B. Smoove and Charlie Murphy. Especially - ESPECIALLY - when the former had atelevision show that was at least mildly related to the field you work in. Honestly, I expected better from her. I know this was an innocent fuck up, but one of the few likable people on the ESPN airwaves simply needs to be flamed for it. There aren't enough shows as funny as 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' or 'Chappelle's Show', so we need to make sure that we - as society - properly mourn the right deceased black guy that was responsible for so, so many of our laughs while watching them. I'm glad she owned it and it hasn't changed my opinion on her as a sports personality. I will, however, say that I am now a little worried that she'll end up embarrassing me in front of my friends by saying something stupid and unintentionally racialist when we eventually date.
See you soon Leon, and rest in peace Charlie Murphy.
