Whitney Houston Casket Photo Invokes Outrage

by at . Comments

The National Enquirer refuses to let Whitney Houston rest in peace.

The latest issue of this notorious tabloids screams "WHITNEY: THE LAST PHOTO!" and purports to depict a picture of the late singer in her casket.

It was allegedly taken inside Whigham Funeral Home in Newark, New Jersey on Saturday and shows a woman wearing a dark dress, with "Nippy" (Houston's nickname), along with two treble clefs, written in blue script on the lining of the casket cover.

The image - we blurred it out above - has invoked outrage across the Internet, with Sarah Anne Hughes of The Washington Post referring to it as "shocking and disturbing."

A similar uproar took place in July 2009 when a British tabloid covered an issue with a photo of a dying Michael Jackson being wheeled out on a stretcher.

What do you think of the Enquirer publishing this picture?

People need 2 understand that taking a pic of her isnt wrong. If it was done by family & REAL friends only 4 the purpose 2 cherish memories. But the wrongdoing is when its done by a heartless person that didnt love her or give a care in the world about her 2 disrespect her & her mother & her daughter 2 take a pic of her & sell it 2 a damn magazine.

to the Houston family you have my deepest sympothy on the unkindly acts of our fellow man...The Bible says that man reaps what you sow....and money is the root of all evil...its sad how people let the evil thought or careless thought control the real concern of others...out the window ...i pray that God shelters the Houstons, by keeping them warm and safe in his arms of abiding angels to where the devil can do them No Harm...amen ...Tanika L.

I wish Cissy would sue. But it shows you that since she isn't this lady is tired. She just lost her only daughter and worried about her granddaughter. You people have no sense of respect or heart.It also shows that she isn't money hungy and that all she wants is respect for her daughter. I feel all the magazines need to be removed from the shelf.

It amazes me all the judgmental people, we seen her in life, why aren't we able to respect her in death by seeing or viewing her. Who cares who made money, this is always the case for celebrities who typically leave their loved ones in a messed up financial situation, unless. U have walked in their shoes, u can't say anything because those tht have struggled w/ any kind of addiction sympathize and try to give advice on how to get through it, u definitely don't judge, u r not God last i checked, society makes things far worse then it should be! #justsaying#

SICK! I hate the Enquirer and take anything they say or show as fake!!

I am just amazed that the family did not have 24 hour security at the funeral home to prevent anyone from taking a picture. The person who sold the pic and received $500,000 will have a hard time spending it if they were not already wealthy!
