Fox News host John Gibson was callously satirical about the death of actor Heath Ledger, on his radio show. His show opened with Auditory clips of Ledger’s most famous film, “Brokeback Mountain,” playing with a background of funeral music. He kept on coming back to his death and mockingly related it to the other news.
Like this, apparently Heath Ledger was suicidal and his friends saw it coming. I think he watched the Clinton-Obama debate last night. I think he was an Edwards guy, cause he saw his Edwards guy was just completely irrelevant.
Listen to this-
Heath Ledger was 28 years old. He was a father, he was a son, he had a family, freinds and fans. Above all he was a human being and no human death should be made fun of. Gibson’s pre planned jocular narrative was heartless.
What is more alarming that he defended it as a joke, explaining that he had long made fun of the “quit you” line and casually said that there was ‘no point in passing up a good joke’.
He finally made an apology on Fox News on the day of Heath Ledger’s service.
28 is too young to think about death? I dont think so. Everyone thinks about death, all the way from highschool to when they actually die. anyone who says they dont think about death ever is just fooling himself/herself.
28 or 82 – death is inevitable and everyone will die. I believe as well that no death should be mocked; humans or animals.
Thank you for writing about it. Otherwise I wouldn’t have known what a spineless creature John Gibson is.
I couldn’t even finishing listening to this crap. WTF is wrong with gibson. seriously, have some respect for the dead.
I actually can’t believe what I’ve just listened to.
I’m sitting here in tears right now. How can he say all that stuff?
How can he make fun of such a fantastic actor’s death?
it’s bad enough to even make fun of anyone’s death like, but Heath’s? Imagine if his family or friends heard this. His daughter for christ sake.
I can’t believe how disrespectful that guy is. He’s full of shit. I’ve never even heard of him before today but I hate him more than anything already.
I thought when Jerry Springer hit the airwaves American entertainment had officially hit rock bottom. Apparently not. What a sad, desperate and totally sickening “joke” from a sad, desperate and totally sickening “entertainer”.
