People Were Upset That Roger Ailes Was Included in the ‘In Memoriam’ Segment at The Emmys

The “In Memoriam” segments of awards shows tend to be known for their omissions, but this time there’s outrage over someone that was included.

Roger Ailes, the chairman and founder of Fox News Channel, died four months ago. Despite being ousted for sexual harassment, Ailes was included in the “In Memoriam” package because of the huge impact he had on television. However, people expressed their lack of enthusiasm for seeing his face alongside other television legends who have passed away this year.

And there were several people upset that Ailes was included but not others like Charlie Murphy, Dick Gregory, Erin Moran, Frank Vincent, and Harry Dean Stanton.
