Funny man Louis C.K. and blockbuster director Judd Apatow have demanded Harvey Levin and his TMZ remove footage they obtained of the accident aftermath that critically injured Tracy Morgan and took the life of fellow comedian James “Jimmy Mack” McNair.

The video depicted Morgan being dragged from the twisted wreckage by civilians who first arrived on-scene.

Lindsay Lohan Damned Either Way

Lindsay Lohan, displaying one of her classic “Lindsay grins,” probably proud of herself for getting back to her hotel before the clock struck midnight. A lot of gossip, news websites ran this picture captioning Lindsay as bloated and looking old, all this on the first day of a new year. I say layoff Lohan. At least until she does something stupid for real.

TMZ saw this picture this way:

The photos tell the story — it was a rough year for Lindsay Lohan.

These pics of Lindsay were snapped as she returned to her London hotel just before the stroke of midnight.

Lohan looked disheveled and a little bloated after celebrating the end of a year that included —

— a car crash
— 3 fresh criminal charges for lying to cops
— getting her probation in the jewelry heist case revoked
— arrested in NYC for assault
— arrested in NYC for hit and run
— calling cops after epic fight in NYC with Dina
— huge tax problems
— Liz and Dick
— Liz and Dick

Why didn’t the gossip mags focus on the fact that she was actually was being a good girl for a change? I guess that don’t sell.

Okay I agree, Lindsay does not look her best here, but how much can you beat-up on a female’s looks, before you start looking like a bully yourself? Most firehouse-gingers will tell you that growing old gracefully is not one of their strong points, genetically speaking. So come on guys, I never thought I’d say this but, layoff Lohan, a little.

Now Lindsay, you go out and do something awful so you can properly make the news in 2013.

Middleton Aussie DJ Pranksters Have History Of ‘Extreme Crank Yanking’

I know that there are people out there who absolutely love playing practical jokes and in some sick way they even seem to enjoy getting pranked. I am not a big fan of pranks, sure I did all that stuff when I was a kid but later on I realized there’s probably some bad karma attached to scaring the living daylights out of people for kicks.

The Australian DJs who pulled the prank on Kate Middleton’s nurse, yielding tragic results, end up having a history of extreme pranking.

Good old Harvey Levin over at TMZ is reporting,

There’s some serious hypocrisy at the Australian radio station that pulled the plug on the Kate Middleton pranksters — because the station has a history of setting up dangerous stunts … some purposely designed to cause panic and mayhem.

2DayFM’s “Kyle and Jackie O” show aired a segment called “Desperate Acts” back in 2009 … where a listener was given $1,000 to call her sister and convince her their mother was injured, bleeding, and in need of medical attention.

It worked … the sister called 911 and sent paramedics speeding to the mother, who was totally fine.

That hoax prompted a police investigation.

Later in 2009 … Kyle and Jackie O hooked up a teenager to a lie detector while her mother grilled her about her sex life. The stunt blew up in their faces when the girl suddenly revealed she had been raped when she was 12.

That segment led to another police investigation, and got the DJs a week-long suspension.

Additionally, 2DayFM has reportedly been on probation multiple times for violating Australia’s broadcast code.

Despite getting repeatedly slapped on the wrist for their stunts … 2DayFM honchos still signed off on Michael Christian and Mel Greig pulling the Kate prank.

2DayFM’s response to the nurse’s death has been that “no one could have predicted” the tragedy — arguably true — but they’ve also broadcast stunts where tragedy is not only foreseeable, but desired.

So, canceling the DJ’s show … hypocritical?

Honestly I don’t wish anything bad on these two, they seem like cool people. It’s just a tragedy 360.
