After the revelation that Ledger had been taking Ambien/StilNox, this ‘joke’ appeared on PleaseGodNo today. It seems that the phrase “too soon?” no longer seems to apply. Not that I can imagine any time being right for this kind of joke.
There’s a difference between pushing an envelope and being a heartless prick.
One IDIOT on the site rants:
heath ledger’s death is all part of a viral campaign for the new batman movie. promotions for the dark knight have included coordinates to places in america to meet up for special gatherings for the film and defaced websites and the usual ARP related games. this is no different. when the film is released, the joker’s biggest prank of all will be revealed and he will indeed laugh at the fools who believed this.
That’s right – we’re all the subject of this “joke”in which a young father dies leaving a daughter and a grieving family behind (whose public statement is really CONVINCING – wow, a family of actors…)and it’s all to sell a film. Twankunt.
Australia’s 2UE is reporting – Heath Ledger found Dead in New York at a downtown apartment.
Ledger was not found in his own apartment, but that of the Olsen Twins.
The Sydney Morning Herald is reporting that Ledger has died of a drug overdose. The circumstances are not being considered a crime. The actor of Brokeback Mountain leaves behind a daughter, which he fathered with Michelle Williams.
In an awful irony, Ledger starred in Candy, a film that deals with the process and nightmares of addiction.
The New York Times Blog has picked up the story too:
The actor Heath Ledger was found dead this afternoon in an apartment building at 421 Broome Street in SoHo, according to the New York City police. Mr. Ledger was 28.
