Explained---I understand freedom of speech. In fact, I fought for your right to express your thoughts as you wish. What I did not realize was that there were so many people ignorant enough to make horrific comments about an individual that has passed.
You are so quick to throw the "freedom of speech" card however, I bet you have never volunteered your time to deserve that right. You are backing up comments from crude,disrespectful, and immature people. You should not be wasting your time writing back and forth with me and do something to deserve your freedom!
Possibly you could volunteer your time or money to the charities DJ AM was involved with. JUST A THOUGHT

I think his death is really tragic. I feel really bad for Haley Wood. One must wonder if he committed suicide to spite her. Now, she's probably feeling guilty, and may never recover from his death. Just because he has been sober for 9-years, doesn't mean that he was "sane" -- crack will permanently change the way your brain works. I don't doubt that he might have had a dark side that he only showed to certain people. He was probably seen as a "Nice Guy" -- but there's no way, that after years and years of smoking crack cocaine, that he did not suffer some sort of brain damage. He probably couldn't deal with the break-up in a healthy way. So, he fell back to his old ways.

To Haley: You ARE NOT responsible for his death. You didn't cause his death, and you couldn't have prevented it. There was nothing you could have done to stop this from happening.

Amber, really, you must be very very new to the internet or you are overly controlling. You have zero authority to tell anyone else what to say or what not to say, unless you're planning to sue for libel. That's how free speech works. Just let it go. You're not going to have an effect anyway, the people you're complaining about aren't going to listen to you, and this isn't AmbersTMZ.com.

(This is just like the people who come to TMZ and then complain about the content. Why do they come here????)

sorry, never heard of him. has anyone outside of New York or Hollywood heard of him? what were his "accomplishments" as far as talent? hopefully he won't be remembered for being "the guy who died with crack at his groin."

sickening, the reason why Adam Goldstein was famous and wealthy was because of the media attention. If the media didn't give a crap about him, he would have been a big nobody. In fact, most people didn't have a clue who he was until Nicole Richie started dating him, yes he had a following but she propelled him into a much higher level of fame.

So what do you expect when someone like that dies? People are interested in the details. If you want total privacy, don't be famous. Simple as that.

Marilyn Monroe, Jimi Hendrix, Rick James, Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, Janis Joplin, Grandmaster Flash, John Belushi, Jim Morrison and Kurt Cobain were all drug addicts too and they are all waiting for DJ AM in hell. It won't be too long before Lindsay Lohan will be joining the devastation crew too.

free speech proponent-
Give me a break...Why are you wasting your time on this freedom of speech nonsense? You are claiming everyone has the right but you are telling me what I can or cannot do?? Where is the sense in that?
Did your parents ever teach you that "if you cannot say anything nice, don't say it at all?" Probably not, right?

That's were this conversation ends.

How many recovering addicts would be able to take all those pain pills the burn unit doctors jack you up on and just keep on a perfect path to sobriety? Only a very few. I had burns and a skin graft 3 years ago, and the docs gave me so much pain medicine that there is still a full bottle of Oxy in my kitchen cabinet. You would have prescription drugs in your home if you had been so severely injured less than a year ago.

OK Amber.

I find it really interesting that we're all expected to be super hurt by DJ AM's suicide. Sorry, I didn't know the guy and I don't think his departure will affect the world. I'm sure his friends and family are having a horrible time right now, but for anyone to expect the rest of us to grieve is a bit much. In the big picture, he was, honestly, nothing. He was like Paris Hilton, famous for being famous, these people leave no legacy.

Probably the only important thing to come from his death is the reminder that some drugs are seriously bad new, they are very addictive and can kill.

Amber - First of all, thank you for your service. However - you need to get EDUCATED on that "right to express your thoughts as you wish" that you say you fought for. You are confused. The whole point is that YOU DON'T GET TO DICTATE what other people say just because you don't like it! Even if you think they are "crude,disrespectful, and immature people." THAT'S THE WHOLE POINT OF FREEDOM OF SPEECH!

You also need to get educated on the Constitution (1st Amendment) and Bill of Rights. You see .... I - and everybody else in this country who doesn't break the laws of the land - was ASSURED FREEDOM without "doing something for it" as you say ... because it was GIVEN TO US by those who fought for that for us long before you came along!

(And by the way - You're telling me not to write back and forth with you etc. ...... Once again - YOU REALLY DO HAVE CONTROL ISSUES! Take an honest look at yourself and deal with it!)

I'm reading an MTV article about an interview Adam Goldstein gave in July 2009. He claimed then that he was 11 years sober. I doubt it. I doubt in a single month he went from 11 years sober to dead from crack. This reminds me of Drew Barrymore and Corey Feldman, who both participated in Nancy Reagan's "Just Say No" campaign.... while they were continuing to get high. Did Goldstein's intervention show, "Gone Too Far" ever air? How ironic that a guy who dies from a drug overdose was going to help other addicts get off of drugs.
