(AllHipHop News) Charlie Murphy's former publicist has blasted producers of the Emmy Awards for failing to include the comedian in their In Memoriam segment.
Eddie Murphy's older brother lost his battle with cancer in April, aged 57, but fans were left upset on Sunday, when they noticed there was no mention of Charlie's passing at the TV awards show, which typically honors stars who have died over the past year in a special tribute.
A number of viewers took to social media to express their anger at the snub, and now Charlie's representative, Domenick Nati, has shared his views on the lack of Emmys recognition.
"I am very disappointed that Charlie was left out of the Primetime Emmy Awards last night," Nati told TheWrap.com. "Charlie has millions of fans who were expecting him to be honored for his life and work in film and television and it never came."
He added, "I hope the Emmy producers can find some way to still honor him with the photos I sent them."
Murphy, known for his work on TV series "Are We There Yet?," "The Boondocks," and "Chappelle's Show," wasn't the only beloved star missing from the In Memoriam tribute - comedy legend and civil rights activist Dick Gregory, "Happy Days" actress Erin Moran, and movie veteran Harry Dean Stanton, who passed away on Friday, were also absent from the clip.
Appearing to comment on the missing faces, rapper/actor Common posted on Twitter, "Thinking of my brothers Dick Gregory + Charlie Murphy. I'll never forget you. I miss you both."
