Louis C.K. implores TMZ to remove Tracy Morgan crash video

By Scott Tuttle     Jun 13, 2014 in Entertainment
Wednesday night, Louis C.K. came to the defense of fellow comedian Ardie Fuqua's daughter Krizya who has been begging TMZ to remove a video from their site featuring the car crash that left her father and three others seriously injured and another dead.
“Take it down TMZ,” tweeted Louis C.K. “Now. Please.”
The video featured on the popular celebrity gossip site shows Fuqua's unconscious body being lifted from the wreckage of the limousine and laid onto the freeway.
C.K. also included in his tweet a link to a story on Laughspin featuring Krizya's Instagram message asking TMZ to remove the video.
"I honestly would like to petition for TMZ to remove this video. They don't understand how hurtful it is to see my father be dragged out of the wreckage," said the Instagram message.
Louis C.K. later tweeted "Arte's brave daughter asked them to take it down. They won't," and "Please don't go to TMZ to watch the video. Please ask them to take it down. @TMZ."
The comedian's Twitter campaign has inspired others among his ranks to join the cause including comedian Judd Apatow, who posted directly onto TMZ founder Harvey Levin's Twitter page.
"@HarveyLevinTMZ please take down the accident video," tweeted Apatow.
The crash occurred last week when a truck on the New Jersey Turnpike collided with the limo seriously injuring Fuqua, Saturday Night Live's Tracy Morgan, Jeffrey Millea, and Harris Stanton while killing stand-up comic James McNair.
The truck's driver, Kevin Roper, pleaded not guilty Wednesday to charges he faced of vehicular homicide and assault by automobile.
Fuqua, who has appeared in Louis C.K.'s FX hit TV series, Louie, was Tracy Morgan's opening act for his live comedy show.
