Heath Ledger drug
video will not air
The TV shows
"Entertainment Tonight" and "The Insider", who were scheduled to
air the infamous Heath Ledger drug video, back down to
celebrities and agents, will not air the shot.
"Entertainment Tonight" and "The Insider" will not air the
Heath Ledger drug video, after a number of high-profile
celebrities and publicists contacted the producers of the show
with requests that the video, which allegedly shows Ledger doing
and discussing drug, would not be aired. The official version
for axing the video by the two shows is - it was made "out of
respect for Heath Ledger's family." Viewers of the shows
question the real motives behind the pull, considering that the
shows have aired video of an intoxicated Anna Nicole Smith in
clown makeup right after her death, and pictures of the car
crash that killed Princess Diana.
According to second-hand accounts, the
video was to show Heath Ledger talking about using drugs at a
drug-fueled party two years ago. In a promo clip run by the
shows yesterday, Heath Ledger is seen at the party, in which
other people appear to be using cocaine, although he was not
shown doing drugs himself. Reportedly a leaked version of the
Heath Ledger drug video is already online, although its
authenticity remains questionable.
The Australian actor was found dead on
January 22nd in a New York City apartment. His representatives
have denied that he used illegal substances, and no illicit
drugs were reportedly found in his home at the time of his
death. The toxicology results are still pending.
