Comedian Charlie Murphy, who died Wednesday at age 57, appeared in numerous movies and television shows over several decades of acting, most notably on The Chappelle Show in the early 2000s.
ESPN personality Michelle Beadle, however, apparently wasn’t much of a fan. When Murphy’s death came up as a subject on SportsNation, Beadle made a comment she’d probably like back.
“For me, he was probably my favorite part of Curb Your Enthusiasm,” she said, as Marcellus Wiley nodded in agreement and LZ Granderson furrowed his brow.
The problem was, Murphy never appeared on Curb Your Enthusiasm. Beadle was thinking of fellow comedian JB Smoove, who vaguely looks like Murphy if you squint but is, in fact, a different black comedic actor.
Here’s the cringe-worthy clip, via The Big Lead:
Credit to Beadle, she owned her mistake afterward, tweeting that she “effed up bigly.”

JB Smoove, who has appeared in 17 episodes of Curb, is alive and well and hopefully won’t be leaving us anytime soon.
