Nancy Grace, professional newschannel loudmouth, recently stirred up a hornet’s nest when she speculated that Whitney Houston could have been murdered.
Speaking to CNN’s Brooke Baldwin, Grace said:
“I’d like to know who was around her,” Grace had said Monday on CNN, “who if anyone gave her drugs following alcohol and drugs, and who let her slip or pushed her underneath that water. Apparently no signs of force or trauma to the body; who let Whitney go under her water?”
After Grace’s highly speculative comments, there was a firestorm of backlash from all over the place, including from The View‘s Whoopi Goldberg, who criticized Grace for jumping into such wild speculation so soon after Whitney’s death.
Grace may have received a health amount of backlash for her comments, but don’t expect her to apologize. Grace appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America, and GMA legal analyst Dan Abrams called her out, saying that she should apologize for inappropriate speculation.
“I understand that some people may consider that jarring or harsh, but there is nothing delicate or nice about a murder, a death, an unexpected death, or an autopsy,” Grace said in her defense.
“Can’t you just say, ‘I was wildly speculating and I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have said it. It was inappropriate,’” Abrams fired back. Grace said it was not speculation. “They look to see if it was a homicide, if it was natural causes, or accident. I know that’s not palatable, it’s not easy going down, but that is the reality of what medical examiners do.”
