VH1 Series ‘Barely Famous’ Retitles & Tweaks Episode After Orlando Tragedy

Barely Famous, VH1’s reality series parody created by and starring Sara and Erin Foster, has changed the title of its upcoming episode and slightly tweaked its content in the wake of the Orlando shooting that took the lives of 49 people at a gay nightclub. The episode, which airs on June 29, was originally titled “What Happens in Orlando… .” Filmed months ago, it chronicles the Foster sisters’ exploits as they go to Orlando for vacation and visit Universal Studios. In addition, the title change to “Vacation Episode,” a scene featuring the frisking of an elderly woman has been cut.

“Out of respect for the tragic events that took place in Orlando, we have retitled season two’s episode two that was shot back in February and slightly edited its content,” VH1 said in a statement.

Sisters Sara and Erin Foster payed respects to the victims a day after the Orlando massacre as they rode in the L.A. Pride Parade.

TNT recently pushed the Season 3 premiere of TNT’s drama The Last Ship, originally scheduled for the night after the Orlando shooting. It contained a scene involving a shooting at a Vietnamese nightclub.
