Louis C.K. Asks TMZ to Remove Video of Tracy Morgan Crash

Louis C.K. has asked TMZ to remove a video of the horrific crash scene involving his friend and fellow comedian Tracy Morgan. Sunday’s highway accident left one dead and four injured, including Morgan, who remains hospitalized in critical condition.

“Take it down TMZ,” he wrote on Twitter. “Now. Please.”

The footage, taken by a passerby shortly after the fatal crash, allegedly shows comedian Ardie Fuqua being lifted out of the limousine wreckage and onto a New Jersey freeway while unconscious.

Fuqua, who appeared in the first season of “Louie,” was the opening act at Morgan’s comedy show the night before in Delaware.

“(Artie’s) brave daughter has asked them to take it down,” C.K. said on Twitter. “They won’t.”

The Emmy-winning comedian went on to ask millions of Twitter of followers to boycott the video as well.

So far, the celebrity news site has yet to withdraw the video.

Morgan, who suffered a broken femur,broken nose and several broken ribs in the six-car accident, is expected to remain hospitalized for several weeks.

The Walmart truck driver who struck Morgan’s limousine, killing comedian James “Jimmy Mack” McNair, has pled not guilty to vehicular homicide.
