STFU TMZ YOU ARE IDIOTS    

I would rather have all you unsympathetic people "check out" then all the drug addicts . So how about all of you saying nasty things take your own advice? We need more DJ AMs and less of you bastarrdss! Go to hell, actually, I don't need to say that to you, cause you are going there anyway!

I totally agree with John. It might sound harsh, but the truth hurts. These famous people need to get it together. Call it insensitive or cruel...whatever you want to but deep down you know it's the truth in it's rawest form. Unsugarcoasted, no asskissing, and sympathetic exaggerations.


46. I'll reserve any snide comments because it is a death after all...but...oh what the *$@#.
MAN I don't care! These so called celebrities with their whining, spoiled, in excess lifestyles bore me to damned death.
"Oh- Im heartbroken that my girlfriend is gone."
GET OVER IT! MOST of us deal with stuff each and every day. Be it a break-up, job loss, having trouble paying bills, rent, utilities. Wondering what the future holds, etc, etc, etc.....
In a TIP to all of you "celebrities" that just can't seem to cope.
GET A HOBBY, GET A PET, GO SHOPPING....
DO SOMETHING other than sit there and get completely vaporized doing drugs, meth, booze, vicodin, Propofol, whatever!
FIND SOMETHING TO DO!!!

It's not really too hard to understand why addicts are afraid to admit they have a problem & seek treatment. There's obviously so many humane & accepting attitudes out there amongst us regarding addiction based on some of these a..holes posting here! With people like you out there, I can see why they would want to come forward & bare their souls & make themselves vulnerable so you can drop some nice label like "junkie" on them & dump your judgements on them!! Everytime I hear about how our society is so much more "ACCEPTING OF ADDICTION & IT'S TREATMENT", I want to throw up. We haven't come as far as we would like to think we have. Just take a look at what some people are writing here. MAKES IT PRETTY OBVIOUS DOESN'T IT!! By all accounts this man had been in recovery for a decade, was in a plane crash & probably received pain medication for his injuries which led to a relapse. I sure would like to see some of these cretins spewing their BS actually do the work that's involved to overcome an addiction for 6 months. Then they still wouldn't have earned the right to pass judgement on this man!

tmz has gone too far. its very disrespectful for him and his family for the media to take pictures of him being wheeled out in a body bag. you guys wouldnt want ppl to be crowding around your loved ones oohing and aahing and making a spectacle out of it if they died suddenly. this is very distasteful and disrespectful. i love how the family asked for privacy and tmz even posted that and then there you guys are at his doorstep to take pictures of the body bag

I'm in total shock. I never thought I would wake up and read about another celebrity dying from drug use. You would think that with all the recent deaths more celebs would realize what could happen to them and they would start getting clean. R.I.P Adam...you will be missed.
