A bit annoyed

As most of you have heard, ET and The Insider both made plans to air a never-before-seen video featuring Heath Ledger surrounded by people partaking in drug use. The Insider played a preview of the video, making it seem like Ledger was using drugs, featuring parts when he says "I'm gonna get so much shit from my girlfriend." In the clip, he also says, "I used to smoke five joints a day for 20 years," however, the clip does not show him saying afterwards, "and that's why I got this tattoo [an M, for daughter Matilda] to remind me never to smoke weed again." According to one source who has seen the video, he did not use drugs throughout the entire video. Several celebrities did not support the airing of this material which led ET and The Insider to cancel airing the full video. I couldn't be happier about that. Ledger's death was and still is a great loss to his fans, but felt and experienced most by those closest to him. People tend to forget celebrities are humans foremost and then celebrities. Like anyone else, they deserve to have a peaceful passing and their families deserve peace, quiet and time to grieve without cameramen camping outside their front doors, television stations airing things that don't matter at this point or magazines printing fabricated stories (much like UsWeekly did claiming Michelle attempted to send Heath to rehab. Her publicist has since denied the allegation.)
