Ryan Murphy’s Winehouse joke was cut!

For those of you wondering how long it would take before people started retconning Amy Winehouse jokes out of reruns of TV shows? The answer is ‘three days’. In a past episode of The Glee Project that ran a couple weeks back, Ryan Murphy made a joke about how one of the contestants should have come out in full Winehouse drag. So of course, the joke has been cut and will never be seen again, unless you know how Google works.

“I’m surprised you didn’t come out here dressed like Amy Winehouse. Why didn’t you?” Murphy said. While the contestant joked that he’d be happy to put something on, Murphy’s next comment was dropped from the broadcast. According to the Boston Herald, Murphy shot back that only “a mop and a bottle” were needed to complete the ensemble, which was received to raucous laughter. Editors replaced those few seconds with a shot of judge and Glee choreographer, Zach Woodlee, while cutting the audio completely from the broadcast. SOURCE

Look, I know it’s still a little fresh and all, but … well, you can’t just change history because it doesn’t show you in the most flattering light. Does it seem like a bit of a pointed read in the new context? Yes. But Winehouse’s occasional messiness and lack of polish was something that we liked in her, even if it sometimes worked against her. Anyway, I’m going to end this on one last side-note: Hannah needs to win. NEEDS. She’s amazing, and I adore her. Go team Hannah!
