Ok! This has really crossed the line of entertainment. This family is mourning the loss of a loved one and TMZ had NO RIGHT to interrupt their time of healing. You S.O.B's seriously need to grow a heart and learn when it is time to just back off and give it a rest....SHAME ON YOU!! I DONT SEE HOW YOU PEOPLE SLEEP AT NIGHT KNOWING YOU JUST VIOLATED A GRIEVING FAMILY'S SPACE......ALL OF YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELVES!!!! If I was in the Ledger's family and you did this to me, I would be beating the crap out of you, sueing TMZ for invasion of privacy and I would be destroying your cameras......TMZ, you owe this family an appology and you need to take this Ledger family story and pictures off this website and off the air! IF YOU DONT, THEN YOU DONT HAVE A HEART.. YOU DONT HAVE GOD IN YOU AND YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF!!!!

Leave these people ALONE and let them grieve in peace! Have you no decency at all ??? This is not funny, and not entertainment. Let these people alone so they can bury their loved one in peace.

Disgusting vultures.

Why is TMZ saying the paps did it? TMZ and outlets like this one are entirely to blame for providing an outlet for stuff like this. It's terrible to think that these poor people can't grieve without some soulless jerk sticking a camera in their face. Disgusting.

This shouldn't have even been put on the website and when you saw this family the photogs should have just given them their condolences and walked away!!! How can you look in the mirror??

Leave them a lone    

Imagine you just lost your child, your brother - someone who you thought you would have in your life the rest of your natural life. Now imagine parasitic paps following you areound trying to capture your grief on film, as you can barely get get through the day without screaming with grief and pain.

Bastard people, please leave this family alone!!!!!!!!!

~please please stop~    

Shame on you TMZ. I am now done with your website. Shame on you TMZ. I am ashamed of myself for checking out your trash but I am done now. Shame on you TMZ. I am deleting the shortcut to your trash and suggest others do the same. Shame on you TMZ. Maybe a big decrease in viewers will make this garbage think before posting shameful stories & pictures like this. Shame on you TMZ.

I was really proud of TMZ for NOT print anything that has to do with Heath Ledgers funeral, until now. Have some respect Mr. Levin. This poor family has been through enough. PLEASE LEAVE them alone, they dont deserve this.

WTF is wrong with people?!? TMZ- you should NOT be bragging about getting this footage- it just makes you look like low life bottom feeders that cant even let people mourn in peace. Shame on you.

I'm all for the paparazzi snapping photos of the comings and goings of our favorities celebs, but this is one instance where I think they should have the decency to back off. As fans, we really don't want to see the look of grief on the family members.

TMZ stop posting pictures/videos of Heath Ledger's family. He may have been a celebrity, but his family are just private citizens. Let them grieve in peace.
