I can't believe that this is tolerated anywhere in the world. TMZ and others should be ashamed of how you make a living. How would any of you feel if your child died and the next second someone was shoving a camera in your face and asking you to comment? This is disgusting. Take it down!

"Ohboy," there is a big difference between looking at photos of famous people in the public eye (i.e Paris Hilton out at a club or Hulk Hogan in a parade) and intruding on a private situation that should be treated with respect. I, for one, DID NOT watch this video and AM NOT supporting this crap.

I call for TMZ to TAKE IT DOWN.

I am absolutely disgusted by TMZ, once again. Stop showing images of Heath and his family during what will most likely be the most devastating few weeks of their lives. What is wrong with you TMZ? Don't you have any self respect? He didn't ask for this and neither did the family. You just lost another viewer. Anyone working with TMZ should be ashamed of themselves at this point.

I'm just saying is all.....    

Everyone who is criticizing TMZ and all the others for "stalking" these poor people are being very hypercritical. WOW you sit in judgment of what they are doing, but you yourselves are doing the same by coming to this site and readind the articles and looking at the pictures. Supply and demand people, if you did not come to this website or read the tabloids they would not exsist. BUT you obviously are interested and want to know and want to see and this is why we have TMZ. (Did not mean to rhyme there) They hound and stalk these poor people, The Ledgers and Brittany Spears (as examples) because YOU are here and because YOU watch their show, they are giving the public what they want. But then you come here and call them "whores" and call them names for what they are doing. But you indeed are the same because you CHOOSE to come here and read the gossip and look at the pictures. They are not controlling your computer, YOU are. So, "people that live in glass houses should not throw stones." If you don't like it don't visit this site, or watch their show. If you do, don't throw stones. You are just as bad!

Sick of the Whine: To come to a stupid Hollywood website such as this just to read up on harmless (usually) gossip is one thing. To see cameras thrust in an innocent families face during the lowest point in their lives is quite another. That is cruel and heartless. None of us who would normally look at TMZ for simple amusement find this acceptable. Its disgusting and it completely crosses the line. TMZ should take this down. It has absolutely NO PLACE on a Hollywood Gossip website. This is an ordinary family grieving the loss of their son and brother. We don't need to see this. Its none of our business.

I am just glad that crazy wbc church (the picketers) were too afraid to picket over there in Perth. It's a shame they still picket other funerals though. Anyway, I didn't watch the video, like a lot of other commenters here, it just seemed too invasive.

RIP Heath Ledger

I am not saying I agree with what TMZ and the others are doing here I feel so bad for The Ledger Family and The Spears Family. These poor people can not even grieve for their son as anyone should have the right to do or have a breakdown. Am I correct in saying people that visit these sites and buy the magizines fuel this kind of behavior? Then sit at the computer ans whine about what the public has created. That's all I was saying.
