Louis C.K. Pleads With TMZ: Remove Video Of Deadly Tracy Morgan Crash

Posted: Updated:

Louis C.K. has a message for TMZ: Take down an insensitive video of a deadly car crash. Immediately.

On Wednesday night, the comedian took to Twitter to plead with the celebrity news outlet to take down a clip that shows the aftermath of the New Jersey Turnpike crash Saturday that killed comedian James McNair and injured four, including his friend and fellow comedian Tracy Morgan.

Louis C.K.'s pleas came on the heels of a similar request made by comedian Ardie Fuqua's daughter.

Fuqua was one of the four individuals injured in the crash and his daughter has said the TMZ video shows her unconscious father being pulled out of the wreckage.

"I honestly would like to petition for TMZ to remove this video," Fuqua's daughter wrote on Instagram earlier this week. "I understand people want to know and people want to be updated, but enough is enough. This is hurting my heart so bad that this video is posted for all to see."

As of Wednesday, Fuqua, Morgan and a third passenger -- Morgan's assistant Jeffrey Millea -- remained in critical condition, per the Associated Press. A fourth person was reportedly treated and released from the hospital Saturday.

TMZ has not removed the video as of this writing.
