Let Them Mourn In Peace

| Filed under: AustraliasticHeath Ledger

heath_ledger_memorial_166_wenn5079463.jpg

Heath Ledger's family will arrive in New York City on Friday from Australia.

Out of respect for their privacy, we won't name the funeral home the service will take place in. It'd be nice if the media left his family alone on that day, but we don't think that will happen.

Ledger's ex, Michelle Williams, and daughter, Matilda, arrived at their Brooklyn home on Wednesday. They were greeted by hordes of paparazzi. So wrong.

We didn't use those pics. Nor did we use the pics of Ledger's body being taken out of his apartment.

And we won't use pics from outside the funeral parlor.

Hopefully others will follow suit.

    it's about time that people stop speculating and dragging this poor guy's name through the mud.
    i have to agree with perez, his family should be left to mourn in peace. and the media, should respect that and stay away from the funeral.

    Someone should get a list of the advertisers on John Gibson's show so that we can all send them emails and phone calls that we will not be buying their products if they advertise on Gibson's show. That is where the money comes from–and we all know if you hit them in the wallet–they'll beg for mercy and do our bidding.
    GO PEREZ GO!!!

    75

    good for you perez! you're a good guy.

  76. Eliza says – reply to this


    76

    I want to commend you for not showing any of those pictures. The media has become way to invasive. There really is no benefit to seeing pictures of people looking sad, we all know what grief looks and feels like. It's bad enough when someone close to you dies and you grieve in private; I cannot imagine what it must feel like to have people pushing cameras in your face and taking pictures of your most intimate pain for the world to see.

  77. way to go perez!!! says – reply to this


    77

    way to draw the line. that is great. i just walked by the funeral home in ny today on my way to appt and there are dozens of dirtbag paps. i love 'goss' as much as the next, but this situation if far from it and people need to draw the line at grief and devastation. its just plain wrong. i am hoping some new laws will be passed regarding invasion of person privacy.

    thanks for setting a good example.

  78. Jamie says – reply to this


    78

    For the first time, I'm very impressed with you, Perez. That's a classy move.

    83

    OH GIVE ME A BREAK! NOW YOU WANT TO SHOW RESPECT? YOU ARE SUCH A LOUSE PEREZ, IVE HAD WITH YOU. KHARMA WORKS IN WEIRD WAYS AND YOU ARE CERTAINLY PLAYING WITH FIRE. FROM DAY 1 YOU HAVE LIED, DISTORTED (IT WAS NEVER BREAKING NEWS TO YOU FAT ASS). YOU ARE DISGUSTING AND THIS GUY IS BOWING OUT FROM YOUR SITE. IM SICK OF THIS FUCKING SHIT.

    I AM SO SICK OF SO-CALLED 'CELEBRITIES'. HEATH WAS THE REAL DEAL. TO BRITNEY, LINDSEY, GO FUCK YOURSELF YOU USELESS TWATS, YOU OFFER NOTHING TO THE WORLD EXCEPT CRABS AND HEAD LICE.

    RIP HEATH. YOU WERE ALL CLASS!

  92. BattyHo says – reply to this


    92

    Thank heavens SOMEONE has a bit of respect! Though I think some of the articles you have linked mention the funeral home. I feel so much for the little girl and Michelle and I hope the press follows your lead in not photographing them at this time.
    RIP

  93. andrea says – reply to this


    93

    You know Perez, I hope that you can use this same compassion towards Britney. It's so gross how you always claim she will kill herself or should just put herself out of that misery. Fucking hypocrite…
