UnNews:Earl kills Queen with covid in NBC reboot
Saturday, March 12, 2022
NEW YORK CITY -- In another case of bad timing for TV series poking fun at the Royal Family TM, NBC has previewed their upcoming reboot of My Name Is Earl, which features Earl (Jason Lee) contracting COVID-19 while on a trip to London. Hilarity ensues when Earl meets the Queen (SNL's Cheri Oteri), who dies of Covid the next day. The real-life Queen recently tested positive for the virus that has almost literally caused the world to stop turning. Ironically, Her Majesty dies just after giving Earl an honorary knighthood for his humanitarian services.
Unfortunately, the plot was conceived and entire episode completed prior to the Queen's real life diagnosis.
"Dammit!" says NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Shell. "It's like that HBO cartoon all over again. Her Majesty will probably croak before this episode makes it to the air Thursdays this fall on NBC, or the next day on Peacock."
Twitter erupted in outrage. Lily Orchard tweeted:
|“||Oh no you didn't @NBCEarl The Queen is damn near 100, she's too old for this kind of ridicule. Your show was never good to begin with, and season 3 sucked harder than My Little Pony.||”|
Chris Chan tweeted:
|“||Earl kills the Queen by giving her Covid? Nonsense! There's only one queen and that's me, Sonichu faithful.||”|
Kanye West tweeted:
|“||I'd rather than be dead than watch the reboot of @NBCEarl. As a matter of fact, I already am dead. Buy my new album, in a proprietary format, only $200.||”|
Neil Young replied:
|“||Fuck you @kanyewest! Remember Pono? My lawyers will be in touch with you soon. If you're gonna charge an obscene amount of money for a proprietary music player, at least sell hi-res files.||”|
|“||My Name Is Earl was never my cup of tea, I was more a fan of The Office, but people need to lighten up and get a sense of humor.||”|
"This isn't even the worst timed episode," says Shell. "We also have one where Earl takes a trip to Ukraine."
