TMZ has shown their total LACK OF CLASS. What is the point of "publishing" the guy's last few words? Did TMZ get more "clicks" then ROL because of this? Jeez, what total AZZHOLEZ

Harvey you and your pack of fame whores have shown what little class you have. Your lack of journalistic integrity speaks volumes for what you REALLY ARE.

You have shown you have ZERO compassion for his family. Nice Job, idiot.

Hey TMZ, love you guys....BUT really, stick to the bullSh*t that is the Carpashions, and why Lohan lips are looking worse and worse everyday, BUT she thinks she is hot...you know stupid funny crap, NOT this.

All I keep thinking about is his poor family.....anyway, just shows us the idiot parade that is all of the above.

I didn't feel it appropriate for me to listen to this call, so I didn't. Poor, poor guy. You shouldn't have posted this. Can't you ever leave anyone alone or respect anyone's privacy? It doesn't matter how much you change the site, if the content is this low.

Harvey you really suck for posting this. Those that post here should ban together and STOP POSTING. Eventually you'll lose hit which will have a direct impact on your wallet.

It really was not that emotional. There are billions of people in this world and we are over populated. So if a few losers dont want to live then no big deal. We could lose a few billion and we will still go on.

Someone needs to start a petition or something to get TMZ to stop posting this type of stuff. There are lines that shouldn't be crossed, and this is one of them. It's time TMZ fans sent them a message letting them know we don't want to be exposed to this type of thing.

As a proud Idahoan, shame on you for posting a man's last dying call. We are all mourning the loss of "Speedy". I love you TMZ, but sometimes the line you cross makes me wonder!

Tmz...you are evil and cruel for posting this. You should be ashamed of yourselves. I've been a longtime fan...but this crosses the line!
