This yr's Golden Globes host, Jerrod Carmichael, garnered gasps when he talked about Whitney Houston‘s dying through the present — one thing the property was equally shocked by.
Pat Houston — Whitney's longtime supervisor and sister-in-law — tells TMZ by a rep … “The Whitney Houston Property is dissatisfied within the joke, and felt it was in poor style.” Pat is the only real executor of the property, BTW … so she controls all issues Whitney-related.
As for whether or not Carmichael's joke was alerted to anybody linked to Whitney previous to Tuesday's broadcast — sources with direct data inform us no person was given a heads-up.
It is unclear if anybody at NBC knew JC was going to say Whitney throughout his internet hosting gig — within the second, his comment appeared off the cuff … and it very properly could have been.
In case you missed it … after the Globes got here again from industrial break at one level, Carmichael stated he had been requested to shout out the venue, after which he quipped … “So, we're right here, dwell, from the lodge that killed Whitney Houston, the Beverly Hilton.”
After all, he is referring to the actual fact Whitney overdosed in one of many lodge rooms again in 2012. Some people laughed, however much more appeared bowled over and others even groaned.
It was simply one of many controversial moments from Jerrod — one other got here when he talked about Shelly Miscavige … a high-ranking Scientologist who's been out of public view for years.
