I'd have felt equally sorry if this had happened to anybody else.

That's all I'm saying.

Given your celebrity status, Ms. Anderson, I'm sure you do. *shot*

Anyway, I don't understand why someone would target the family of a celebrity specifically. O_o; Unless it was just a coincidence?

I can understand politicians at least, but... actors? Musicians? Movie stars? *shrug* Makes no sense.

They are searching for the familys car that is missing.

Hopefully that is a clue enough.

Lol, wow... I was just watching this on the news.

Anyway, apparently her nephew was kidnapped, too. That's just horrible. Two family members killed, and one kidnapped? I mean, c'mon... how heartless can you get?

I agree with this comment. I mean, it's a horrible thing to happen, but I bet it wouldn't be nearly as newsworthy if the person related to them wasn't famous. D:

Still, condolences to the family. :/ Hope they find who did it.

People die everyday from natural causes, such as disease.

But having two family members shot and killed is terrible.

What's even worse is the fact that you just know some journalists are going to be pestering her about this.

As if it weren't bad enough for her already.

My deepest condolences.

Definitely. One bad thing about getting such a spotlight is the fact that the press is now going to be a total nightmare. :[ Sad, but true.

Like what's been said, it's the same as all of the murders that go on everywhere in the world. The only reason people have taken so much notice is because it's Jennifer Hudson. Still, my condolences as well. It's a horrid thing to happen to anybody. Hopefully the police won't take too long in finding the culprit like they normally do. :3

I know, thats one of the reason, but still if this would have happened to a normal family it would still be on the news, you see it's 2 people murdered and a kidnap, it's a pretty big deal.

I have to wonder whether the nephew would be held for ransom; it seems to be the only reason for taking a 7 year old boy from a family where one member is in the spotlight. I hope they catch them, and don't make any silly mistakes with the evidence. These evil people deserve to be caught.

I heard about this, and I was shocked. I can't believe it, that she lost her mom and brother to a lunatic! And her nephew is gone too? Dang, that is so sad. I really hope they will find this person! And the press will go easy on Jennifer. But of course that won't be the case. She just need some time to herself right now. And the press probably won't give her that time. :/ She just got very famous too, and all this happening...she is very, very hurt right now. My prayers go out to her.

Presidential candidate Barack Obama issued the following statement regarding Jennifer Hudson's tragic loss:
"Michelle and I were absolutely heartbroken to learn about this unimaginable tragedy and we want Jennifer to know that she is in our thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time. We also pray for the swift and safe return of her young nephew."
The Obamas had requested that their fellow Chicagoan, Jennifer, sing the national anthem at the Democratic National convention earlier this year.

It makes the world a happier place when a presidential candidate can support other members of the world.

Feel sorry for the people who were murdered, not for who was left behind.

Honestly, every single one of you who posted before me cared more for Jennifer than for the people who were shot. -_-

That's not completely wrong,, I mean she's the one that feels bad now, and she needs to know that people care, and I hope they find her nephew and that he's safe and unharmed,

I do feel sorry for the two who died. It shouldn't happen, but Jennifer loved her family very much. It is going take her a long time to get over it. And I am a little worried. But first thing first they need to find the nephew.

I feel very sad about the mom and brother. D: You are right. I should feel sorry for the slain as well. I am sorry. My prayers goes out to them.

There's no end to what Google can do, Angela! -- Don't underestimate it's power (http://www.google.com/search?q=TMZ&sourceid=navclient-ff&ie=UTF-8&rlz=1B3GGGL_enUS298US298)

Anyway, I feel the need to reply to this, as any other thread that interests me, saying "of course." Though this may sound heartless and it may not, it was just a matter of time before yet again another murder to loved ones of a celebrity were to occur. Like all other killings, I do hope that the murderer is brought to justice. However, I hope that it isn't anything worse than what would happen if he were to have murdered a random citizen of the United States or any other country for that matter. It's so interesting to see how people jump when a relative or a family friend of a celebrity reacts over that of a random person. Having that be the case, this thread wouldn't even be here I can safely say. The media does a terrible job at portraying favoritism of news articles towards those wealthy celebrities, it seriously sickens me.

Please don't let that paragraph above make me sound heartless and if I don't care. It's just thousands die each day from murders. Innocent children, toddlers, teenagers, etc. And the only types that the media decide to show the entire world are that of a famous celebrity. Don't get me wrong; I feel grief for both those murdered and the loved ones of theirs that have to live the rest of their life never seeing them again. It would be absolutely repulsive if I didn't. That said, there really isn't much more I can say that the others here haven't already stated.

Thank you for the link:D,, We all get what your saying, if this had been just your averages Janice that had her family murdered I doubt that I would have even heard of it, *or maybe since it's 2 people and a kidnap* So we all get what your saying, and no I don't think you sound heartless you have a point, but to imagine that this kind of crime *brutal* just had to happen to a celebrity, is that a random act I ask myself,, if it were it must be like 1 in billion for it to happen like it happened.

Oh my, this is so tragic! Now they found out her nephew is dead as well. D: What is the world coming to?! But I do agree if it wasn't a celebrity, it will get covered. But in a local level and then it will be forgotten. For Jennifer case, it will be covered around the world. My prayers goes out to her nephew as well. Hopefully it isn't him, but I doubt it. :/ This person should be caught and be in jail for the rest of his/her life, I swear! >:T

They do a big, hour long news report on Jennifer Hudson's family murdered. But where is the hour long news report when my Grandpa died. Hmm?

I feel sorry for her, but not any more sorry then any other murder story I hear on the news.

I guess what I am trying to say is that I feel sorry for her as a person.. not a celebrity.

There was a detective on TV that said this. She thinks it was a grudge because well.. who would kill a little boy and if he wanted ransom money, then he wouldn't have killed him.

I think it is too early to be saying it as a grudge. There isn't sufficient evidence.
