Comedians Louis C.K. and Judd Apatow are pleading TMZ to take down the footage from the Tracy Morgan crash… seriously. Louis took to Twitter, asking followers to help push TMZ to pull video from their site of the horrific six-vehicle highway car crash that left Morgan hospitalized in critical condition, comedian Ardie Fuqua critically injured and comedian James McNair dead, THR reports.

The clip was said to be taken by a passing driver after the accident took place in New Jersey last weekend, showing Fuqua being pulled from the car wreck unconscious. Fuqua’s daughter, Krizya, took to Instagram to ask TMZ to take it down. “I need help to get TMZ to remove the video of the accident that shows my dad being pulled from the truck and laid down to the side,” she wrote. “This something no one should ever see, it’s hurtful and distasteful.” Morgan was expected to start a new sitcom for FX but the channel said in a statement that his show “will be waiting for him”. “The only thing we are concerned with is the health and recovery of Tracy Morgan and the victims of this tragic accident. We will support Tracy and his family in every way possible throughout his recovery,” it read. “At the point when Tracy has recovered and decides that he is ready to go back to work, his show will be waiting for him. Right now our thoughts and prayers remain with Tracy, the other victims of the accident, and their families.”
