NBC pulls SNL sketch about Brittany Murphy

SNLSo by now you've heard the news about the death of Brittany Murphy yesterday.

In a case of odd timing, Saturday Night Live actually had a sketch just two weeks ago that made fun of Murphy's persona. Now, to be honest, I didn't really know Murphy outside of the movies she was in (such as 8 Mile), so this doesn't make any real impact on me. It shows Murphy as a bit off, a bit dazed. But again, I'm not even sure if I ever saw Murphy in an interview situation. NBC has pulled the video from the web because of Murphy's death.

However, Mediaite has video of the sketch. They also have video of an appearance Murphy made earlier this year on The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson. Judge for yourself if it's accurate or not.

I wasn't aware that Abby Elliott is Chris Elliott's daughter. How cool. The impersonation was a great, too bad she can't do it again. I think it was probably used on WU bc "abby does a great murphy in Freeway impersonation" + murphy being in the news. And that's about all. Poor timing. Sad passing. Let's let the poor girl rest in peace.
