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.

Heath Ledger drug video will not air "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.
