Dr. Drew Pinsky had Mindy McCready on his season three "Celebrity Rehab" which debuted in January 2010. However, as reported at The Inquisitr on Feb. 19, 2013, Pinsky is facing criticism because the country singer is the fifth member of the show to die in the last two years.
"Celebrity Rehab" is a reality TV show that follows a cast of famous people as they battle their addictions. They also receive help from Dr. Drew Pinsky, an American board-certified internist, addiction medicine specialist, and radio and television personality.
Tweeted singer Richard Marx, who has since deleted the tweet, "I think 'Dr' Drew Pinsky should change his name to Kevorkian. Same results."
However, not everyone is against the famous addiction specialist. Said actor Jeremy London, who appeared on the show’s fourth season, "The people that are going to die are going to die anyway. I hate saying that, but there’s a certain personality type that even Dr. Drew will never ever be able to help. You have people that can be in rehab for 90 days and get out and go and do drugs one time and die."
Should Dr. Drew be blamed with one of the celebrities who appear on his show eventually dies, such as Mindy McCready? The other stars who appeared on "Celebrity Rehab" but who eventually died include former Alice in Chains bassist Mike Starr, "Grease" star Jeff Conaway, LAPD beating victim Rodney King, and MTV's "Real World"'s Joy Kovar.
