Here’s what Associated Press reported on Sherri’s behalf:

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Sherri Shepherd has apologized for sharing video of a fight at the funeral of comedian and actor Ricky Harris.

The former co-host of “The View” posted video to Periscope on Tuesday expressing her outrage at the fight during the gathering in Long Beach, California. She explained in the video that someone came inside the funeral home and went toward rapper Snoop Dogg. She said Snoop’s bodyguard tackled the man “and then it was just a big fight.” The videos were reposted by TMZ.

Shepherd says in a statement that posting the video was “an impulsive and emotional reaction after what I later learned was a misunderstanding” and that she’s “sorry for any distress the video caused.” She says she “would never have imagined” TMZ would use the video for a story.

In the video above, it was very clear to see that Sherri was extremely emotional during the chaotic scene that was unfolding at Ricky’s funeral, but uh…. We love us some Sherri Sheperd, Lawd knows we do…but c’mon now, maybe she didn’t mean to press record on her phone and give play by play commentary as she was standing outside the church panicking and watching folks flee the funeral, just as she’d just done. Or maybe she didn’t mean to post the video on Periscope for all the world to see. But did she really believe that a celebrity of her stature could post something that shocking on a social platform and not think a media site would catch wind of it?!! Hmmmm…

As you probably imagined, some folks are giving Sherri’s apology this look right about now…
