The video, shot by a passing motorist, shows Fuqua being pulled from the overturned mini-bus.’
Fuqua’s daughter Krizye posted a message on Instagram asking TMZ to remove the clip.
“They don’t understand how hurtful it is to see my father be dragged out of the wreckage,” she wrote. “This is hurting my heart so bad that this video is posted for all to see. No one should see my father this way.”
On Wednesday, comic actor Louis C.K. tweeted his support.
Please don’t go to TMZ to watch the video. Please ask them to take it down. @TMZ

Director Judd Apatow added his voice.
Neither TMZ nor Levin have responded to the pleas to pull the video.
