Louis C.K., Judd Apatow, Aziz Ansari, and Dax Shepard are just a few of the celebs banding together against TMZ.

The trio, along with many friends, is pleading with the website to remove a horrific video they posted of the aftermath of the accident involving Tracy Morgan.

The footage shows comedian Ardie Fuqua being pulled from the wreckage unconscious. The New Jersey highway collision that occurred at 1 a.m. Saturday morning took the life of veteran comedian James "Jimmy Mack" McNair and injured four others including Fuqua and Morgan, who remains in critical, but stable condition. ("Today was a better day," a rep for the actor said on Thursday. "He continues to show signs of improvement.")

"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," Fuqua's daughter, Krizya, posted on Instagram. "This something no one should ever see, it's hurtful and distasteful."

In a post on the social networking site, she added, “This is hurting my heart so bad that this video is posted for all to see. No one should see my father this way … Enough is enough. Please TMZ remove this video."

Ardie was the opening act at Morgan’s comedy show. He also appeared in an early episode of C.K.'s FX show, Louie.

Judd Apatow, Dax Shepard, and Aziz Ansari followed suit.

As of now, the video remains live on TMZ.
