Emmys In Memoriam Segment Snubs Charlie Murphy, Erin Moran and More; Twitter Rages

by at .

So the Emmy Awards happened last night, and lots of people had lots of feelings about it.

And many, if not most, of those feelings were extremely negative.

Lots of people were upset when Sterling K. Brown was played off the stage during his lovely acceptance speech -- so many that the venue was filled with boos after it happened.

There was also the very odd choice to bring out Sean Spicer -- the "joke" didn't land, to say the least.

Then there was the In Memoriam segment, the part of the show where everyone takes time to pay tribute to the people from the industry who are no longer with us.

It sounds nice, right?

But the people in charge over there at the Emmys truly dropped the ball with this one.

Huge stars like Charlie Murphy, Dick Gregory, Frank Vincent, Harry Dean Stanton, and Erin Moran weren't remembered during this special moment during the show.

And you know Twitter wasn't having that ...
