Amy Winehouse joke censored on 'Glee Project'

The Oxygen channel sensitively censored an Amy Winehouse joke on a repeat of “The Glee Project” Sunday night.

Though remarks about the singer intended in jest were considered standard TV fare as of last week, obviously Winehouse’s death on Saturday has changed things. Luckily, the network caught the joke and opted to drop the audio, according to the Boston Herald.

A contestant on the reality competition was jokingly asked by “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy why he didn't come dressed as Amy Winehouse. Another judge chimed in that all he needed to appear as Winehouse was “a mop and a bottle,” which is when the muting kicked in.

A spokesperson for the network says the change was made to the episode out of respect for the late singer’s family and friends, who mourned her passing at a funeral in London today.

    Seriously, no one cared about her when she was alive so why care now? She certainly didn't care about herself.

      You do realize she's dead, don't you? I guess that makes shaving her sideburns a bit moot, eh?

    Too bad she wasn't shown respect when she was alive. She may have been alive today. We raise people high only to have a better shot at shooting them down.

    I hope she's reincarnated, as... herself! That way she can let the haters on these blogs have it! Don't ask me what that might be, I'm sure Amy will think of something appropriate! She's probably ready right now! Hit'em where it hurts, Amy!!:D

    Me too. I think she is just a Justin Bieber wannabe. If she were so tallented she would be on american idol or star search.

      Hey retard....Those shows are for people who don't already have record deals. BTW, is Star Search even still on the air? You may not know who she is or think she is talented but she was very big over in England. She was a British singer, therefore she did not receive much airplay in the US.

      Justin Beiber wannabe? That makes sense, considering she is much older, and had her biggest release YEARS before anyone knew who the 13 year old(at that time) Justin was. Oh yeah, and they don't even sing music in the same genre. They are EXACTLY alike. While I strongly disliked Amy, I can't deny she actually had musical talent. She just had an addiction that she chose over her career. A classic move by someone consumed by addiction.

    They shouldnt have censored it. Censorship is wrong. We need to protect freedom of speach.
