    So I wake up today and my Mom tells me that Ellie Kemper, the star of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt had passed away this morning from a suicide. Worried, I immediately went onto my laptop to check it out and every source I can find has her as still alive.

    It was very weird and I was wondering if you guys heard anything about it.

    No, it was Lisa Lynn Masters, who played the marriage counselor in an episode of season 1.

    Hope that this thread is renamed (“Did Ellie Kemper die?”).

    There I changed the title and thanks for the clarification. My mom doesn’t watch Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt so there was the confusion.

    Yeah it’s pretty ridiculous. All the articles have the headline as “UKS Actress” or “UKS star” when she was barely in one episode, resulting in a lot of clicks. On reddit, people who don’t watch the show are making jokes like “I guess she was breakable after all” cuz they think she played the main character.

    Kinda sad what they’ll do for clickbait. OTOH, a gofundme page setup by the family has already passed $35,000…

    Whoop diddy scoop!

    Media’ll do everything for additional clicks. Theoretically they didn’t write an untrue headline but that actress only took part in 1 episode so they at least twisted the truth. If they would write “Lisa Lynn Masters passes away” far less people would click on that than “UKS star passes away” as then you click, cause you’re scared for people like Kemper, Krakowski or Burgess. It’s easy, refabricating what really happened and it’s harming dignity of tragedy like that when human being loses his/her life but it’s media process of thinking and it won’t ever change for the better.
