George Clooney: Releasing Demi Moore's 911 Call Was 'Stupid'

| Filed under: Demi MooreGeorge Clooney

We have to say, we kind of agree with him. It's a terrible invasion of privacy and we're not sure why these calls are made available to the public.

A big topic of conversation on the red carpet last night at the SAG Awards was the hospitilaztion of Demi Moore. Many of her friends and former co-stars were at the show, including George Clooney, who didn't hold back his distain about her 911 call being released over the Internet.

He shared his views with The Insider, saying:

"It's always troubling when people you know and people who you care about end up going through a difficult time … I think it's a stupid thing. I think it's stupid for anyone, whether they're celebrated or not, I don't believe their 911 call should be broadcast around the world, but that's my opinion. What's happening and what people have to remember is that people are getting famous from Facebook and Twitter, so it's not just about people here, it's about everybody. There won't be any version of privacy. So it's going to be a tricky thing."

It is tricky and is something that should be addressed.

When did everyone's private lives, not just the famous, but such public knowledge? And how is that combatted? Obviously, celebrities are always going to be in the public eye, but should it be in this way. It doesn't seem totally fair.

What do U think?

    How about do not do something stupid that a call to 911 has to be placed. As we all know 911 transcripts are public records.



  2. 2

    I agree. I don't think 991 calls should be public record. I think they should be private, like medical records, and only become public in a court of law if necessary.



  3. 3

    If you agree that they shouldnt have been released why did you post it on your website? You cant play both sides.



  4. 4

    Are you joking? You couldn't wait to get your hands on it. As soon as it was available it was on your site. Stop talking bollocks.



  5. 5

    I find it incredibly ironic that Perez talks about privacy having no place in society anymore when he dedicates his livelihood to writing about the details and personal facts of celebrities day to day lives. Pot calling the kettle black?



  6. 6

    You're so full of hypocritical shit. You sure didn't think it an invasion of privacy when you rushed to post it here and post follow-ups every 1/2 hr. You're a two-faced dirtbag.



  7. 7

    You know what is even more stupid, Georgie??? You parading around the "Beard du Jour", while your longtime GAY boyfriend, Rande Gerber (the "husband" of that BIG DYKE Cindy Crawford) is left home. THAT'S STUPID, Georgie!!!



  8. 8

    Perez, I used to think this was all an act. But the more I come here, the more I realize………you REALLY are this clueless, aren't you?



  9. 9

    911 calls should never be released. Unless used in a trial or if it is needed in order to find a milling person or suspect. People call this service with in desperation.

    Re: rosebud99 – What is a 991 call



  11. 11

    If you're going to call the authorities for emergency assistance then you best be prepared for someone out there putting in a Freedom of Information request. Want to live life in the public eye then STFU or move to the North Pole. Moore's a dumb fuck for acting like a 13 year old emo. Clooney's a dumb fuck cause that's what he is. You're the biggest dumb fuck for posting it and then siding with Clooney.

    Re: netgear – Ooops. Hate those pesky typos.



  13. 13

    Re: penny1206 – You are awesome!!! I couldn't have said it better myself….LMFAO…



  14. 14

    You've got to be kidding Perez…..you violate "privacy" all the time. You make money off of other people's suffering, drama, etc.That is what this website is all about. If you really believe your own crap, then quit posting the calls and private matters of others. I'm betting you won't…….



  15. 15

    I think if you're so opinionated you should make a stand! I think its horrible that the tape was released, but even worse when i heard it on your site. I had to stop it after 30 sec. Why would you put it on there?



  16. 16

    apparently his contract with the fake girlfriend is up soon. wonder who they will find for him next to pretend hes not into dudes…..



  17. 17

    this coming from the guy that releases every celebrity nudes

    911 calls should absolutely remain personal, imo.



  19. 19

    I agree that these tapes shouldn't be released to the public, whether the person is a celebrity or not. Although, if you think it's so wrong, then why did you report about the call and what was said on it. Hypocrite, as usual.



  20. 20

    HollyWood just looking out for each other, AGAIN ! Does he get upset when they re-play the 911 call of a poor black man, ready to blow up his family in Compton …? Strange. I guess he is just dreading the day his 911 call is released, where they 4 male strippers/escorts and midget are all high outa their minds on COKE, claiming he had a seizure while performing an 'unusual' sex act ! Sorry, HollyWood…ya gotta play by the rules ! And, it is true…it was STUPID what Demi Whore was doing, to begin with…Could he comment on that, pleae ? !



  21. 21

    It is a public service, therefore, they should be released….sorry, but IF she wasn't doing something as STUPID as she was, there would not be an issue……



  22. 22

    perez you are being a major hypocrite. you posted the demi 911 call and you posted scarlett johansson's hacked nude photos. 911 calls should be kept private. i agree with rosebud 99. they should only become public in a court of law.
    *
    o.k. i know this has nothing to do with the subject at hand, but that muppet video about faux news was hilarious!!!



  23. 23

    This is a little terrifying truly. Our gvt was very clear about public info and transparency about the people making sure our agencies are watched. I could give 50,000 examples of why 911 calls should be made public for transparency in gvt. How not all groups were always allowed to see or even subpoena what are now public record. Small town police agencies or (I have lived in TX) decide to get together and have a certain type of law and order if the courts are also w/ them the public would have refuse of mandatory taped and public 911 calls. Which has busted up abuses. That is one very SIMPLISTIC reason. George Clooney never comes off as very intelligent so I forgive him. People warp freedom, but to take it away??????????



  24. 24

    Oh I see! A celebrity shouldn't have their voice heard when they're in trouble or in a crisis. But celebrities should have an EXTRA loud voice when they want to promote their causes, like George advocating a resolution in Darfur! What an arrogant hypocrite!



  25. 25

    Demi Whore oughta be grateful for the service - it MAY have saved her wretched life !



  26. 26

    Uh, Perez can't agree with George. Perez posted the 911 call. You can't agree with him and then be part of the machine that invades the privacy of other people.



  27. 27

    Unless the 911 call is being used in a court situation, it should not be released. It's no one's business what information is given to a medical professional or dispatcher — that's highly personal information that is confidential.



  28. 28

    Oh my, Stacy is a stunning and beautiful woman. I completely understand why Morticia hates her.



  29. 29

    911 is paid for by taxes so I think anyone can get the transcript of a radio call (but probably not the details between the paramedics and Drs. since that would be personal).



  30. 30

    Never been a fan of blonds, but she is one of the sexiest women on the planet. Jesus.



  31. 31

    You agree with him, that it's an invasion of privacy? and shouldn't be made public? Says the person who posted it on his blog…if you really cared about the privacy thing, you would have refrained from posting it. Simple as that. Now you just sound like a kiss ass.



  32. 32

    You consider it an invasion of privacy to release a 911 tape, but not to plaster "AA", as in "pAArty" in every other post you whine through? Get a grip, asshole.



  33. 33

    If 911 calls were kept private, then we wouldn't get to hear those gems like where the guy called 911 because Burger King ran out of lemonade. That stuff is priceless!!



  34. 34

    clowney looks like AMERICAN DAD, it was a call to 911, of course it should be released, nothing like some raunchy pic hacked in a cell. Maybe the problem has more to do with the fact that in the US people who o.d. on drugs are JAILED, even for smoking a spliff.

    Re: ThIsIsFaLSe – You make a really good point, but the tapes could be made available in those types of cases that are being questioned without making them
    public fodder across the board.



  36. 36

    Perez, you must have a scrotum the size of Texas for posting this story and then AGREEING with him. You had it PLASTERED all over this site. You write about how it's an invasion of privacy yet you made the decision to post it. You knew fully well that this is a private matter for Demi Moore. 911 calls are public records, but you either post it and be a dick about it, or you don't go back and decide it wasn't in good taste to release the call in the first place. Have some common sense.

    im still laughing that noone wanted to say her age
