CNN’s march toward complete irrelevancy continues unabated.
According to CNN’s Piers Morgan and caught by TMZ:
Piers Morgan was talking to LL Cool J about Whitney Houston’s life. During the July 6th episode of his horrible CNN show the program aired some generic footage of the singer to accompany the interview.
The problem is, the “woman” has a penis. In fact, the “woman” in the footage is a Berlin drag queen named Ikenna Beney Amaechi.
TMZ spoke to Ikenna who said, “I was just sitting at home and at first I didn’t realize it, but then it hit me like BOOM! It wasn’t Whitney … It was me!”
Ikenna says she’s been doing Whitney for 21 years and the picture used by CNN is from the 2008 Reel Awards Show in Las Vegas, an event dedicated to celebrity impersonators.
I’ve come to the conclusion the dopes at CNN just don’t care anymore.
