'There is NO excuse': Charlie Murphy's rep says he provided photos for Emmys In Memoriam segment... but the late comedian was STILL snubbed
He was known as a successful writer and cast member of the Comedy Central series Chapelle's Show before his untimely death in April at the age of 57.
And the late Charlie Murphy's representative has slammed the 2017 Emmy Awards after he was snubbed from Sunday's In Memoriam segment, even though his rep provided images to the show's producers weeks before.
The popular stand-up comedian died in New York on April 12 after a battle with leukemia, but was noticeably absent from the awards ceremony's tributes segment at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

Snub: Charlie Murphy's representative has slammed the Emmys after he was snubbed from the In Memoriam segment, even though his rep provided images (pictured November 2014)
Murphy's representative Dominick Nati told TMZ that an Emmys producer contacted him on August 18 regarding photos of the famous comedian to be included in the show's In Memoriam.
Nati told the site that 'there is no excuse for having excluded him' from the segment.
An Emmys producer reportedly emailed Nati back six days after the rep sent in photos and said they 'could do a nice tribute with what he'd sent.'
He added in a statement released to JustJared: 'I am very disappointed that Charlie was left out of the Primetime Emmy Awards last night.
'Charlie has millions of fans who were expecting him to be honored for his life and work in film and television and it never came.

'I hope the Emmy producers can find some way to still honor him with the photos I sent them.'
While Charlie's photos were a part of the Saturday night Creative Arts Emmy Awards show In Memoriam which aired on FXX, his photos were not included in the main broadcast.
Dick Gregory's family also lashed out at Emmys organizers after the civil rights activist and comedian was snubbed from the segment.
Christian Gregory, one of Dick's sons, told TMZ they considered the snub a 'slap in the face' and 'disrespectful'.
He added: 'Most actors and producers of color wouldn't even be working in TV without [Dick's] civil rights activism and success in entertainment.'
Tribute: Carrie Fisher and other stars that died this past year were honored during the 2017 Emmy Awards at the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles on Sunday night
The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences is yet to offer an explanation for the notable snubs, but they've added all of them - except Frank Vincent - to the website memoriam.
Carrie Fisher, Mary Tyler Moore, Jerry Lewis and other stars that died this past year were honored during the show.
Viola Davis came out mid-ceremony to introduce the heartfelt tribute at the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles on Sunday night.
However, there were noteworthy performers that didn't make the cut - such as Sam Shepard and Dick Gregory.
Davis introduced Christopher Jackson of Broadway's Hamilton who sang Stevie Wonder's iconic song As, while the names of those the acting world lost adorned the Emmys wall one at a time.

Stuntman John Bernecker - who was killed in July on the set of The Walking Dead - was also mentioned.
While many entertainers were mentioned, quite a few were excluded from the Emmy's annual homage.
Sam Shepard - who just appeared on the Netflix's critically acclaimed Bloodline - was absent.

Al Jarreau - who was nominated for an Emmy in 1985 for outstanding music and lyrics for Moonlighting - did not appear on the list.
And comedians Dick Gregory and Charlie Murphy were notably missing as many fans noted on social media.
Rapper and actor Common tweeted a picture of the two actors with a caption that read: 'I'll never forget you. I miss you both. #Emmys'
Absent: Sam Shepard - who just appeared on the Netflix's critically acclaimed Bloodine with Sissy Spacek - was absent from the tribute
