Hatemongers on Twitter ‘glad’ Joan Rivers died

Joan RiversAs most of the known world knows by now, comedy legend Joan Rivers died Thursday at the age of 81.  According to Fox News, Rivers went into cardiac arrest on Aug. 28, and had been on life support at New York’s Mount Sinai Hospital.

But some simply couldn’t let the family grieve in peace, posting hateful notes on Twitter saying they’re glad she’s dead.



Twitchy said some, particularly those who support Gaza and Hamas called it “karma” that she died, given recent pro-Israel comments she made.



There’s many more like this, but you get the point.

Fox added:

“It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my mother, Joan Rivers. She passed peacefully at 1:17 p.m. surrounded by family and close friends,” her daughter Melissa Rivers said. “My son and I would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff of Mount Sinai Hospital for the amazing care they provided for my mother.”

E!, where she headed up the snarky talk show “Fashion Police,” released a statement of condolence.

“She’s been a much beloved member of the E! family for over 20 years and the world is less funny without her in it,” they said. “Today our hearts are heavy knowing Joan will not be bounding through the doors.”
