'SNL' Skit Mocking Brittany Murphy Removed


'SNL' Skit Mocking Brittany Murphy Removed


The skit where audience can be heard laughing at an impersonation of her has disappeared from Hulu several hours after she died on Sunday, December 20 morning.

"Saturday Night Live" no longer makes the funny out of Brittany Murphy. In respect of the late actress, the variety show has pulled off a sketch that satirized her from online platforms such as Hulu.com. The site has put up "Unfortunately, this video is no longer available" in replacement of the clip.

Two weeks ago, "SNL" regular Abby Elliott channeled Murphy in the show's "Weekend Update". It basically mocked Murphy's sudden exit from movie project "The Caller". Seth Meyers who was the anchor of the so-called news segment said, "It was reported this week that actress Brittany Murphy was fired from her upcoming film, 'The Caller', for being a detriment to production."

Shortly later, Elliott appeared as Murphy beside Meyers. "I'm really honored to be here hosting 'Saturday Night Live'," said the faux Murphy. Meyers responded, "No, Brittany, you're not hosting." The subject was then shifted to her being fired. A defensive 'Murphy' said, "I got a plan. When the movie comes out, I'm going to go to the theater and say, 'Booooo'. And then the audience will join in and say, 'Boo'. Best plan ever."

Brittany Murphy who died out of cardiac arrest on Sunday, December 20 morning had hosted the show in 2002, during when she was promoting "8 Mile".
