There’s low, and then there’s a low that cannot even be described when it comes to the death of a celebrity. In the wake of Whitney Houston’s death, the Enquirer somehow snuck into the private viewing room housing the body of Whitney Houston before her funeral, and published a picture of her in her casket.
The Radiant God blog had the following to say, which rightfully raises the question of whether the photo was leaked by the family, or snapped by a crafty Examiner reporter.
Wow! I am not even sure how to respond to this. The National Enquirer has posted a photo of Whitney Houston in her casket as their front-page cover photo. I cannot help but wonder how this will affect their family, but at the same time, I have a horrible feeling that they may have possibly sold the photo. Either TMZ is trying to make waves, or they are on to something. TMZ released a report early February 21, 2012, saying that the Houston family was selling the Whitney Houston funeral videoin order to help Whitney Houston’s and Bobby Brown’s daughter Bobbi Kristina. Is it possible that not only did the family sell the video footage but also sold the casket photo?
The move, regardless of whether it was authorized by the family, has struck a nerve with Whitney Houston fans who feel the National Enquirer photo is just plain tasteless, rude, and hurtful. I am not posting the photo here, but trust me; you will not have a hard time missing it. The National Enquirer is sold in stores nationwide and the Whitney Houston casket photo sits right on the front cover; it is impossible to miss.
