TWILIGHT star Robert Pattinson reportedly blew his top at a comedy club in Los Angeles - when a funnyman performed a routine about Heath Ledger.
An unnamed act at the Improv in Hollywood shocked the audience with his impersonation of the late Dark Knight star, which included collapsing onstage and faking convulsions, according to reports.
A witness at the event on December 16 (08) insists Pattinson and his pals booed the comic, yelling out: "F**k you! You suck! Leave Heath Ledger alone!"
A source tells Us Weekly magazine, "Robert and his friend went nuts yelling at him... The comic didn't know who it was, but I'm sure he found out later!"
Ledger died of an accidental overdose of prescription drugs at his Manhattan home in January (08).

As someone who had albeit small contact with Heath, I know this gentle private man would be humiliated. I and many others are still mourning a loss that has been indescribable and only gets worse as time passes, the holidays being especially hard, and I'm terribly hurt by the comedian's lack of sensitivity.I have not seen Twilight or read the books, but Robert Pattinson just earned my respect. To be that passionate about Heath, he must have also known him or met him in some way. Because Heath was good and gentle, and doesn't deserve the treatment he's getting, and those who knew him, male or female, were touched by him deeply. Only those who did not know him could be so callous.
