Family of Murdered LA Boy Begs TMZ to Pull Graphic Video of Shooting

Andre Lowe

“A man was shot dead outside a Hollywood nightclub early Sunday morning in the throes of a massive brawl… and our photog captured it all.”

That’s how TMZ describes its  graphic footage of 19-year-old Andre Lowe being shot and killed just four days ago. Andre’s family, meanwhile, is devastated – and having video of Andre’s murder online, replete with nearly 1,000 comments (many of which are pretty vicious) from TMZ users, makes grieving in peace practically impossible.

After four days of desperately trying to get TMZ to take down the footage, Jason Andrews, one of Andre’s uncles, launched a Change.org petition asking TMZ to remove the video and apologize to his family.

Says Jason: “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… 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.”
