An Emotional Sherri Shepherd Disgusted By Fight At Comedian Ricky Harris’ Funeral
Sherri Shepherd shared an emotional video via Periscope on Tuesday, showing the aftermath of a fight that broke out at comedian Ricky Harris’ funeral.
An emotional talk show host chronicled the moments that followed what she called the “disrespectful” alteration that occurred while mourners paid their respects to the late actor.
“This is so disrespectful to Ricky’s memory,” a distraught Sherri can be heard saying. “I can’t believe they are fighting at a funeral.”
According to Shepherd, they were about to go view Harris’ body when “somebody came in the funeral home and went towards Snoop (Dogg) and Snoop’s bodyguard tackled him. It was just a big fight.”

Ricky died just days before Christmas from “a cause was not immediately available but Harris’ manager, Cindy Ambers, said the comedian suffered a heart attack two years ago.”
Harris is best known for his roles on Everybody Hates Chris, Poetic Justice and for his tight-knit relationship with Snoop. Harris, who died at the age of 54, appeared on a number of skits featured on the Long Beach rapper’s albums.
