A Statement From Time Out New York on Natasha Richardson

| Filed under: AnglophiliaMedia MinuteSad Sad

This was just sent to us from the magazine, who earlier today reported that the actress had died.

Time Out New York sincerely apologizes for the confusion. We stand by our sources, and our friend of the family first confirmed "dead" and then called back to say "brain dead." We find the situation incredibly tragic and obviously wish to only report the facts.

We stand by our new statement that she is brain dead and not expected to survive. Unfortunately, the article was not taken down — our website crashed from traffic. Time Out New York regrets the error.

    Sad story,but you should have had more than one source before you pronounced her deceased ,ass hat!



  2. 2

    Wow! This is really sad :(



  3. 3

    You owe everyone - especially Natasha and her family - an apology, too.



  4. 4

    stupido!



  5. 5

    perezhilton.com is not a legit news source. Before posting something as tragic as a death of a celebrity you should confirm the claim and reference your source before posting. This is basic stuff, Perez Hilton. This is incredibly irresponsible of you!!! You owe and apology to the users of this site!

    At the end of the day you failed at reporting on this and posted false information. Leave real reporting like this to the big boys who know what they are doing.



  6. 6

    WHAT ABOUT YOUR STATEMENT PEREZ?!?!?!?!
    -
    YOU ALSO REPORTED SHE WAS DEAD?!?!?!
    -
    ARE YOU TRYING TO JUST BLAME TIME OUT NEW YORK FOR YOUR COPY AND PASTYING?!?!?!?!
    -
    YOU SUCK PEREZ!!!!
    YOU SUCK!!!!!



  7. 7

    You should still take down your original story announcing her death. They were/may be wrong but you are as bad to leave an RIP notice published.



  8. 8

    perez you should take down your report that says she is Dead



  9. 9

    "We stand by our new statement that she is brain dead and not expected to survive." How fucking insensitive! They act like she's some goddamn fictional character or something, and not a mother or a wife or a daughter. Fuck them and fuck you Perez. Tmz.

    cows



  11. 11

    Oh, my God! Liam Neeson lives right here in Dutchess County, over an hour north of NYC. He's our neighbor, we adore him, and Natasha.
    Please, don't let this be. They have a young family, it's really a shame.



  12. 12

    BOOO!!!!



  13. 13

    So sad:[



  14. 14

    Your online all the time Perez… how come you have not found the time to 'regret' your postings???????

    You are not a news feed and that has become 100% clear in the last hour or so. Stick to unhurtful gossip.



  15. 15

    Shit, that sucks. She was incredibly young, her poor children.



  16. 16

    "Brain death is a legal definition of death that emerged in the 1960s as a response to the ability to resuscitate individuals and mechanically keep the heart and lungs working. In simple terms, brain death is the irreversible end of all brain activity (including involuntary activity necessary to sustain life) due to total necrosis of the cerebral neurons following loss of blood flow and oxygenation."



  17. 17

    where the fuck is your apology perez? you messed up too you know at least they're apologizing for publishing wrong info but you look more like a jackass by posting this and taking no responsilbilty for your own actions by posting wrong information! you're placing all the blame on them!



  18. 18

    PEREZ YOU OWE THIS FAMILY YOU ASS WIPE!!!



  19. 19

    YOU SHOULDN'T REPORT SOMEONE IS DEAD JUST BECAUSE YOU WANT MORE CLICKS ON YOUR PATHETIC WEBSITE!!!!
    -
    YOU ARE AN ASSHOLE PEREZ!!!!



  20. 20

    you should be sued, fined, and BANNED FROM BLOGGING YOU STUPID WASTE



  21. 21

    Re: SweetPat – so true!!!



  22. 22

    perez instead of just changing the headline of your first report of her death you should take it down.



  23. 23

    I STILL DON'T BELIEVE SHE"S BRAIN DEAD! WHY IS TIME OUT NEW YORK THE ONES THAT HAVE THIS SOURCE! DON'T BELIEVE UNTIL YOU SEE IT!



  24. 24

    This is sad. She was a good actress. I'm going to go watch the Parent Trap!!



  25. 25

    They should wait before saying things like that! THis is a horrible new, my thoughts go to the family and friends



  26. 26

    brain dead IS dead….. no apologies needed

    she'll be in a casket by week's end either way



  27. 27

    Aww man this is sad news indeed.



  28. 28

    hey dumb.brainly death means she is death.just the heart that beats but she will never wake up again.



  29. 29

    Yeah well, thats why they shouldn't listen to a "friend of the family". Let her publicist of Neeson's publicist actually put something out there if they want the leeches to know. Responsible Journalism is dead.



  30. 30

    You'd think someone would check the local Montreal news on the net, where this is all reported correctly.



  31. 31

    Even to say she's brain dead without real confirmation is wrong.



  32. 32

    What a terrible situation :[



  33. 33

    WHERES YOUR APOLOGY YOU CORNHOLER?
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    THE HYPOCRITICAL FAIRY SHOULD REINSTATE HARRY.



  34. 34

    My hears goes out to her family and friends.



  35. 35

    No he shouldn't take it down, it's like Fritzl covering his face with the folder, he should be ashamed of himself.



  36. 36

    Effing cows



  38. 38

    Maybe PEREZ is BRAIN DEAD.
    Maybe PEREZ is BRAIN DEAD.
    Maybe PEREZ is BRAIN DEAD.
    Maybe PEREZ is BRAIN DEAD.
    Maybe PEREZ is BRAIN DEAD.
    Maybe PEREZ is BRAIN DEAD.



  39. 39

    Don't be mad at him! He's only reporting stuff he got from news paper! COme on! Rumors are all over anyway, if he had to apologize for every one that are false, this blog would be loaded with apologies!



  40. 40

    wow people on here are rude probably should be more concerned about Natasha and her family not hating on perez douche bags get a life its just the internet anyways sheesh



  41. 41

    they should have confirmed that by more then one source before releasing it!



  42. 42

    Brain dead is dead, at least in this country. This is not a survivable injury.



  43. 43

    Too sad…
    At least they apologized for their terrible mistake.



  44. 44

    whatever perez–you are still quoting another gossip site–not a reliable source–and if it is true you still suck for blabbing it before her whole family might know–I know this is what you do for a living but how would you feel if it was your family or partner? Would you want everyone gossiping about the loss of someone you loved before it even had time to sink in? Stay away from this stuff or it will bring your site down–If I were Liam Neeson I would sue the pants off of you–report on the fluff you are good at and leave news alone.



  45. 45

    STOP REPORTING until you actually know WTF is going on!!!



  46. 46

    It's so sad! Perez, take down the 1st. post declaring her dead. Out of respect for her family. A mistake was made but we don't need to see it on your site.



  47. 47

    How about some responsibility on your part Malario? You just wanted to be first and you fucked up - admit it and move on.



  48. 48

    BRAIN DEAD MEANS SHE IS DEAD



  49. 49

    not to be super callous but…braindead and dead are mostly the same thing. Brain dead means she's being kept alive on ventilators and will never regain conciousness…if the ventilators turn off so does her body. Dead means that she's not being kept alive so while Time Out New York didn't get their facts completely right, they were essentially correct.

    That said, this is a horrifying story, I feel for her family, especially her two young sons and her husband. I can't possibly imagine having to pull the plug on someone I love. This is quite possibly worst case scenerio.



  50. 50

    Perez, it's fucking morbid how you and all the tabloid media seem to almost WANT her to be dead. You're a sick fuck. You're practically foaming at the mouth with this news. It's sick!!!



  51. 51

    Re: Lisa1023 – Aren't you charming? I hope you suffer a similar tragedy and maybe you will be more empathetic…..you are a sad person



  52. 52

    Re: -Kiya- – exactly



  53. 53

    I think it is absolutely rediculous that you are continuously posting blog after blog on her health, yet it's not even confirmed?????????????? Ummmm… Wow, if that was my mother I would be PISSED on all of the inaccurate coverage on such a sensitive subject… AND btw, When you were complaining about that magazine doing an issue on that dying reality star, I was disgusted. Perez, they could compile a magazine from every single post you have done…counting down her minutes!

    Pot calling the kettle black.



  54. 54

    This is incredibily sad but you all need to chill. Perez is a gossip blog….gossip does not always and mostly always is speculation or word of mouth. He spreads the word. It's validity does not have to be verified.



  55. 55

    I'm not trying to be insensitive, but WHO CARES!? Does anyone know who this person is? She's famous by association. People die tragically everyday, and it's terribly unfortunate, but do we need thirteen posts about her??



  56. 56

    what's with all the Perez-Haters frequenting his website? bugger off if ya don't like the guy.

    thoughts and prayers are with Liam and his family right now.



  57. 57

    Re: Ksmurfer – OF COURSE.BRAIN DEAD MEANS DEATH



  58. 58

    ok Perez….you crossed the line.
    Stick to kissing celeb ass idiot.
    I hope you get a lot of shit for you premature ejaculation of news.
    asshole.

  59. are13 says – reply to this


    59

    Stop trying to place all the blame on them. We are not buying it. You first posted it up as "N.R. DIES" now you have "N.R. DIES According to TONY" Don't try to change the headline now…JERK…REMOVE THE FIRST POST, IT IS A LIE



  60. 60

    Wow P-Tubby, more inaccurate info? Fidel Castro is dead too right? Michael Jackson doing bad form a horrible skin infection? You are a farce!

  61. dASH says – reply to this


    61

    is this the wrong time to be happy that i might have a chance of getting in liam neeson's pants now?

    sorry… inappropriate. but dayum he's hot.



  62. 62

    I agree, this was a screw up on Perez's part…HOWEVER, this is a BLOG NOT a news source. If you are taking this site as a piece of professional journalism, then thats your own stupidity. It's a blog; treat it as such!



  63. 63

    Lol! You're trying to put the blame on them! You're too funny. You reported it too and you're responsible. Imagine all those people that know her and have learned through you that she had passed and then learned not! You're a tiny prick. You owe the public an appology!



  64. 64

    UPDATE 2:00 PM ET — The hospital tells TMZ Richardson is sedated and suffering from brain swelling — but is not brain dead.

    FROM TMZ

    Look I can copy and paste too, maybe I should have a website!!!



  65. 65

    My God! She's not dead or brain-dead! What is THE MATTER HERE!!! Responsible journalism, por favor!!! Go to TMZ for latest details.



  66. 66

    TMZ says brain swelling, but NOT brain dead. Stop listning to that New York paper. Their obviously retarted.



  67. 67

    AGAIN Perez you have it wrong…she has Brain Swelling, she is not Brain Dead, big difference you moron…I hope you get Sued.



  68. 68

    all about the scoop — not the truth — just sad!



  69. 69

    tmz reported at 2pm, a few minutes ago that she is NOT brain dead, but she is in critical condition, with brain swelling, awaiting transportation, via plane to another hospital



  70. 70

    Perez, you take no responsibility over your actions. You need to delete your false posting (not change it, like you did!!!) and create a formal apology post to your users.



  71. 71

    trying to make yourself look better perez?

    be a man and apologize!



  72. 72

    Re: SweetPat – Then why do you "click" on his website then???



  73. 73

    TMZ is reporting that she is suffering from brain swelling, but is NOT brain dead.



  74. 74

    Re: dASH – Wow what a truly heartless idiot you are, I hope you burn in hell



  75. 75

    Ok Perez–it is now being reported that she only has brain swelling and is being sedated–not brain dead-this is common in brain injury case–you do not know and neither do "friends of friends" etc what is going on so you should just shut your mouth and stop blaming others–you chose to post it-you could have done the decent thing but you just want more hits–Karma's a bitch, man and it will bite you in the ass one day….



  76. 76

    This is really sad. Natasha was a very talented stage and film actress. My thoughts are with her family. And I agree–issuing an apology would be the appropriate thing to do Perez.



  77. 77

    FROM TMZ:

    "UPDATE 2:00 PM ET — The hospital tells TMZ Richardson is sedated and suffering from brain swelling — but is not brain dead."

    If she survives, I hope there will be a few lawsuits for negligent and irresponsible reporting.



  78. 78

    I'll wait for a statement from the hospital or her family before I believe anything. It's obviously serious, but maybe not as hopeless as gossip sources are saying.



  79. 79

    so sad……..toughest days ever were those last 48 hrs watching machines pump air into my mama's lungs while organ donations were put in order……….fuck anyone finding folly in any part of this tragedy :(
    .
    .
    who you calling out for irresponsible journalism you rat bastard shitstick!…..you really suck more at your "job" by the day



  80. 80

    She is not dead or brain dead GO TO TMZ they have the real story. It is just brain swelling at this time!



  81. 81

    The hospital tells TMZ Richardson is sedated and suffering from brain swelling — but is not brain dead.

    Posting information that is not confirmed is horrible reporting. This website is so ridiculous.



  82. 82

    Maybe hold off on posting anything about this for a while. it's all hearsay. TMZ is now reporting she isn't even braid-dead. Until the actual reps speak, try to not post falsehoods.



  83. 83

    Yea dude. You should kinda reconsider taking that shit down. You fucked up too, own up to it.



  84. 84

    TMZ is reporting that she is not Brain Dead, she is suffering from Brain swelling.



  85. 85

    What makes me laugh is that you are advertising a new series called "Head Case" on your site when this poor woman is laying in a bed with brain damage?! Are you for real????



  86. 86

    Re: dASH – VERY inappropriate!!! disturbingly so!!!

  87. kmin says – reply to this


    87

    How can we even believe she's brain dead? Hasn't been confirmed by a credible source (credible by any stretch of the imagination). Its pretty said that Time Out New York and Perez are hoping for this poor woman's death so they dont look like the incompetent assholes that they are



  88. 88

    Honestly, I hate Perez as much (if not more than the next person) but if perezhilton.com is not a legit news source then none of you ASS CLOWNS should be taking anything he says seriously. The fact that you all jump on the bandwagon regarding anything he says, show irresponsibility on YOUR part - not his. In my opinion, you're all idiots.



  89. 89

    meh brain dead IS dead….. no apologies needed

    she'll be in a casket by week's end either way



  90. 90

    tmz is reporting that the hospital says she has brain swelling but is NOT brain dead



  91. 91

    I'm confused. Is she brain dead? I'll wait to here from people who really know I guess.



  92. 92

    Still Sad!
    But You Should
    Do Better Research!
    Before Posting
    Someone Die
    You Can Get Sue
    And Stuff…..



  93. 93

    Why are you so quick to report non factual information? In your race to be 1st you've lessened your readers trust in your site. I guess I've learned my lesson to trust only CNN for correct information. Even TMZ does a better job.



  94. 94

    You guys should check out TMZ they are reporting she is not brain dead, there is brain swelling though.



  95. 95

    This is for the poster "LOVE SHOULDN'T HURT LIKE THIS" - since the 'reply' feature is not working.

    Simply because YOU have never heard of a person, doesn't mean they aren't famous or well known. What an idiotic, narrow minded thing to say! Natasha Richardson is actually quite well known in her own right, for her work on Broadway (for which she has won a Tony award), among other work.

    Take a minute and look outside the tiny realm of your world. You might be surprised at what's out there. *rolls eyes*



  96. 96

    TMZ is reporting that she is not brain dead but is suffering brain swelling. You need to stop pulling your "sources" out of you well stretched asshole, Mario.



  97. 97

    Also interesting that you called out that paper for reporting on Jane's Death and calling it exploitation and then doing the exact same thing only an hour later. Maybe next time you'll think before you attack. People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.
    .
    I can't wait until your 15 are up.



  98. 98

    UPDATE 2:00 PM ET — The hospital tells TMZ Richardson is sedated and suffering from brain swelling — but is not brain dead.



  99. 99

    why haven't you taken down the other stories, moron???? she is not dead, at least not yet and YOU THOUGHT IT WAS DISGUSTING THAT OK MAGAZINE WAS PRINTING STUFF ABOUT GOODY AND SHE WASNT DEAD YET.



  100. 100

    Canadian news is not reliable sorry but canada sucks I don't believe she's brain dead if she just took a jet !!!! what did she seizure on the plane and someone called from the sky and said she was brain dead if she left the hospital FOR THE REST THAT THINK THIS IS TRUE , BAD KARMA IS HEADED YOUR WAY AND THIS GOES TO SHOW YOU CAN'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU READ!
