Robinson Blasts Coleman Coma Photos
Soul legend Smokey Robinson has voiced his fury after controversial photos of Gary Coleman on his deathbed were made public.
The Tears of a Clown hitmaker was in New York on Tuesday (10Jun10) to attend a Friars Foundation event in his honour when he waded into the debate over the scandal.
Editors at U.S. tabloid The Globe sparked a storm this week (beg07Jun10) when they published pictures of the tragic Diff'rent Strokes star in a coma in hospital shortly before his death.
Robinson says, "There are certain elements of the media that have gone wild, that have gone crazy. I think it's an injustice in a certain way because there's a point in a person's life that things are private and they should remain that way."
Coleman died of a brain haemorrhage on 28 May (10) after slipping into a coma following a fall at his home in Utah.
