Mindy McCready

Porn Studio Slams Brakes

On Sex Tape

A major porn studio has pulled the plug on Mindy McCready's sex tape -- immediately ceasing all DVD distribution of the footage in the wake of the singer's suicide ... TMZ has learned.

Vivid Entertainment honcho Steve Hirsch tells TMZ, the DVD distribution freeze is effective at once and will continue indefinitely. The porn company currently has no plans to resume distribution.

The tape "Baseball Mistress" -- which features McCready and her boyfriend at the time -- was originally released by Vivid in 2010, following the singer's stint on "Celebrity Rehab." It's unclear when the actual footage was shot.

In the tape, McCready discusses her alleged affair with married MLB legend Roger Clemens ... hence the title. McCready said she never authorized the tape's release.

As for digital distribution -- Hirsch said that's harder to regulate ... but he plans to pull all digital copies of the video from the Vivid website asap.

As we reported, McCready was found dead at her home in Arkansas Sunday after suffering what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. She was 37.

Towelie sayz I think you are just looking to capitalize on her death for free publicity. Is that what you are doing Steve? Because if you really pulled the tape because you have a conscience it's too late for that. The horse has already left the gate on that. You should donate all the dirty money you made off that tape to suicide prevention groups. Then maybe God will have mercy on your soul. Sleazy people like you make me sad. I need to get high.

That's awful kind & decent for a character like Hirsch. I'd like to give him credit for decency, but I'm almost certain he gets something out of this other than favor in the court of public opinion.

Oh what now Vivid suddenly has morals? My guess is a law suit is pending, so they did this to make themselves look good.

Good call, Vivid. Now that she's dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, pull the footage. After all, it's hurting and destroying people that's profitable and socially acceptable. Profiting *after* a death is just too low.

S***.
