Massive Fight Breaks Out During Ricky Harris Funeral After Man Attempts to Attack Snoop Dogg
“It’s sad. They’re fighting at a funeral… It’s so disrespectful!”
Actress/comedian Sherri Shepherd was in utter dismay while attending comedian Ricky Harris’ funeral Tuesday (Jan. 3). An actual fight broke out during the service and she caught it live on Periscope. Snoop Dogg was at the center of the fight.
TMZ released exclusive video footage of the melee:
Two members of Snoop’s crew were able to tackle Harris’ cousin before actually getting to Snoop and was taken out of the church by Snoop’s bodyguard. However, the attempted attack still sparked a massive brawl.
Shepherd reported via Periscope:
Following the funeral, Snoop reflected on the service on Instagram. He only briefly mentioned the fight, but mostly kept his comments on honoring his friend.
Harris was a comedian best known for his role on Everybody Hates Chris. However, he often collaborated with Snoop and other hip hop artists, appearing on albums such as Snoop’s Doggystyle and Ice Cube’s AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted.
He died Dec. 26 from a heart attack. He was only 54 years old.
