Apparently CNN host Piers Morgan wasn’t a big fan of a comedian who recently died. Morgan stuck his foot in his mouth while paying tribute to Patrice O’Neal, who died this week at age 41, reports TheWrap.com.
Talking to comedian Dane Cook, Morgan said, "It’s a sad day for comedy with the death of Patrice O’Neal, who I know that you knew. She died of a stroke today. I want to take a quick look at Patrice on Jimmy Fallon, to remind everyone just how funny she was.”
The problem is that O’Neal was a man. He died of complications following a stroke he suffered about a month ago, as previously reported.
