“People were looking at him like, ‘Why are you still supporting this woman’, and I think he was under a lot of pressure,” Hall said. “I don’t know what was going on in his life that may [have led] him to make that decision but I do understand.”

However, those closest to the late DJ are telling Hall to “CLAM UP!”

According to reports, sources close to tWitch say it’s extremely irresponsible, negligent and self-serving of the reality TV star to assume he knows what led to the DJ’s death.

Mind you, Hall made these comments while promoting his new show, “The Real Friends of WeHo.”

tWitch’s friend finds it extremely unfortunate he made these comments while promoting himself and his new TV show.

“The holidays are hard I think, anyway. But to honor tWitch, I think the best thing we can do is to laugh, hug each other and play games, and dance and sing,” Ellen said. “That’s the way we honor him, is we do the things he loved to do, which is dancing. He LOVED music, he loved games, so, we do that.”

Ellen promoted tWitch to executive producer of her long-running daytime talk show in 2020.

She went on to discuss how the grieving process has been.

“And I know it seems hard, it seems impossible. But that’s how we honor him and hug each other and tell each other we love each other and let people know we’re there for them and check in on people,” she added. “So, happy holidays everybody, and um, I know it’s not a happy holiday, but he was pure light as everybody in the comments said.”
