Ribeye the Fish

Glub, Glub, Dead.

10/6/2011 3:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ribeye the Fish -- once known as "The Snarkiest Fish in the Z" -- has died ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the situation tell us ... one of the TMZ staffers found Ribeye floating in his tank ... unresponsive to various taps on the glass.

The fish -- only a few months old -- was given a burial at sea ... via the toilet in the men's bathroom.

Harvey Levin released a statement saying, "He was a good fish ... he will be missed."

Harvey's asst. Tyler adds, "Not much of a swimmer though." R.I.P.

Harvey, how can you kill a beta? I had them for over 4yrs. Change the water once in awhile and they eat very little. You should have had the fish for a longer period of time. Someone killed it. Beta's are the easiest fish to have. Harvey stay with the dogs. RIP Ribeye!!!

you do realize it's not going to the sea at all but instead it's going to wastewater plant and before it even enters is will be shredded to millions of pieces

Can't believe that you flushed the little fish down the toilet. That't more than disrespectful to the little Soul. It's almost heartless.

Was the water tested for Propophol? Are there recordings on some iPhone somewhere? My betta fish named Sushi has not said anything but he is swimming like he is suspicious today....

Wow Harvey can't keep a fish longer than 6 months. Hopefully Layla isn't next.

Michael Jackson Was A Pedo    

This fish dying is more of a loss to the world than losing Michael Jackson was. Unless the fish was a druggie pedophile also. I doubt it though.

Harvey... Not funny. And flushing him isn't funny either. Maybe your time could be better spent reading up on the CARE that fish need.

I guess the 3rd grade dropouts at TMZ have officially run out of stories & are now posting anything they can to fill space. Another reason why coming to this website is a complete waste of time...
