Fantasia Barrino

Crackin' Suicide Jokes

9/10/2010 9:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's been one month since Fantasia Barrino attempted to kill herself with Aspirin and a sleep aid -- but now, the time has come to crack some jokes about it  ... at least according to Fantasia.

The former "American Idol" champ was boarding a plane in NY yesterday when she decided to open up about pills, her love life and, of course ... her new album.

Fantasia has rarely been treated fairly by the "reporters" of TMZ. This one was clearly baiting Fantasia and being quite disrespectful to her. Her "jokes" as TMZ is calling them were an attempt to brush him off and get away from him.

TMZ is attempting to make news here where there is none.

As for the rest of you haters, GET A LIFE!!! Find a celebrity to follow who you like.

Don't waste print and paper on her. Just another has been with an album coming out and needing publicity because, well, no one cares.

And...... what was the joke, I didn't get it.

Sometimes you have to laugh at questions people ask, I guess she cant take any medications. Fantasia is right on some points, especially when she says things are blown out of proportion.

My god, joke not really.

Every watched her show? I did twice. She has a MAJOR screw loose. She's remarkably immature as well.

If this was a publicity stunt, she has filed a false police report and cost them thousands in response with EMT's firefighters etc. She should be prosecuted.

This is the type of woman we love to hate, but she is her own worse enemy, and she will self destruct all by herself.

SUICIDE IS NOT SOMETHING TO JOKE ABOUT. Especially today of all days...TODAY IS WORLD SUICIDE PREVENTION DAY. Over 34,000 people in the United States die by suicide every year. The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is encouraging everyone to use their social media channels to spread the word about World Suicide Prevention Day and lend their support. For more information, go to Take5ToSaveLives.org.

Please do not use the word "joke" & "suicide" in the same sentence. It is not funny at all. You would feel the same way I do if you have had someone you love commit suicide (my son, last October). There is no way to lose the deep feeling of grief & loss that will be with me & my husband for the rest of our lives. Just asking that you be a little more sensitive with your wording.
