About a week ago, TMZ posted a video of a massive brawl outside of a Hollywood, CA. nightclub. Near the end of the clip a man draws a gun and fires several shots at another man, killing him. The slain man was later identified as Andre Lowe.
Andre's uncle, Jason Andrews, started a petition on Change.org which has garnered around 200,000 signatures asking TMZ to remove the video, and Nick Cannon has joined the fight as well.
"Jason and his family are asking TMZ to remove a video of his teen nephew's brutal murder: Will you share?" Nick tweeted on Sunday. Below is the petition:
"TMZ has thoughtlessly and carelessly posted a video of my nephew, Andre Lowe, being shot to death outside a Hollywood nightclub. These people have no regard for the loved ones affected by this tragedy.
I understand freedom of press but the line has to be drawn somewhere. Its very obvious that the media has no morals and nothing is off limits when it comes to gaining ratings. What they did is wrong and they need to be held accountable. No one wants to see their loved one in this position, having this event viewed by millions of strangers is disgusting. This video needs to be removed and an apology issued to the family and friends."
Do you agree that the video should come down?
