You know, some people have the luck of a small, short-lived fame actor. And Gary Colman, God rest his soul, is That Guy. According to sources at TMZ, there are “individuals” who claim to possess photos of the recently-deceased Coleman pre-plug pull and post-plug pull:
TMZ has learned a series of photos of Gary Coleman in the hospital are being shopped around to the media — and in one of the photos … Gary is already dead.
We’ve seen one of the photos and declined to even look at the rest. In the pic, Gary is in the hospital, his eyes are closed and he is hooked up to a ventilation machine. It is not a pleasant sight.
The person selling the photos claims to have four photos — the one we were shown was taken about an hour before he died. The final photo was taken after he was taken off life support.
Asking price is in the low five figures.
The “low five figures.” How awful. You know, even completely independent of the fact that there’s some
deranged ex-wife sick fuck peddling the pictures for one last grasp at financial solvency, it’s horrible that these “individuals” are so sad and desperate to sell out a dead TV star that the asking price is in the “low five figures.” You know, I know the guy had his problems in life and sometimes didn’t do the right thing all of the time (and who’s fucking perfect, anyway?), but pushing photos of a dead Gary Coleman? What the fuck are you talking about, Willis? Jesus wept.
I’d expect this kind of bullshit over on Rotten.com or something or one of those other lurid websites that glorify gloom and doom and gore — but I can tell you one thing: if those pictures finally do surface, you won’t be seeing them from me. Something that might be worse than big-time ragging on someone for their actions on Earth before they kicked? It’s this kind of shit that’s the lowest of the low.
