Jessie Woo has failed to live up to her last name after a Whitney Houston joke sparked a nationwide uproar.
The singer and actor is one of the new members of the 16th season of “Wild N Out”. In one of the show’s improv comedic segments, titled “Outgoing Message,” cast members and guests are asked to imitate an outgoing celebrity voicemail message.
For Jessie Woo, she was tasked with posing as the late Whitney Houston. Woo started out by singing a rendition of “I Will Always Love You” from Houston. The first 10 seconds of her segment were well received with applause for her vocal ability. From there it took a nasty turn.
She sings: “And I … I’m dead.”

She used Twitter and Instagram to respond to the reaction.
In a video picked up by TheShaderoom, Woo begins by saying, “The show is called ‘Wild N Out’. The most disrespectful things and it’s still considered comedy.”
