Sunset Finances is quoted as saying, “There are reality series for everything under the sun it seems, but we are shocked that it has actually stooped so low as to film and broadcast funerals. We feel as though a line is being crossed, that the respect for the deceased is not really present. Plus, there’s nothing alright with using somebody’s death as a means to achieve one’s 15 minutes of fame.”
