NEW YORK, June 12 (UPI) -- Louis C.K. and Judd Apatow have joined the fight to remove footage from TMZ of a car crash that involved actor Tracy Morgan.

Tracy Morgan, assistant Jeffrey Millea and comedian Ardie Fuqua were involved in a deadly car crash Saturday that left friend and writer James McNair dead. The three remain in the hospital, with Morgan and Fuqua in critical condition.

TMZ posted a video of the gruesome aftermath that includes an unconscious Fuqua being removed from the wreckage. Comedian and actor Louis C.K. took to Twitter on Wednesday to entreat the website to remove the footage.

"Take it down TMZ," he writes. "Now. Please."

Director Judd Apatow chimed in early Thursday morning, and tweeted, "@HarveyLevinTMZ please take down the accident video."

The two men add their voice to Fuqua's daughter Krizye, who petitioned TMZ to remove the video Tuesday on Instagram.

"[TMZ doesn't] understand how hurtful it is to see my father be dragged out of the wreckage," she writes. "This is hurting my heart so bad that this video is posted for all to see. No one should see my father this way. ... Please TMZ remove this video."
