Today, America lost another one of its great entertainers. Still fresh in our memory is the tragic passing of Robin Williams, and now, mere weeks later, we are mourning the loss of another comedic legend. Joan Rivers passed away on Thursday, September 4th, in a Manhattan hospital bed surrounded by friends and family.
Never one to let a scare-tactic go to waste, a Twitter page alleging to operated by key ISIS members claimed responsibility for the passing of Rivers only hours after the announcement of her death.
This unusual clash began after Rivers made disparaging comments about the current state of affairs in Gaza. Rivers appeared to have zero sympathy for the plight of the Palestinian people, and was quoted saying the following, “Good. Good. When you declare war, you declare war. They started it. We now don’t count who’s dead. You’re dead, you deserve to be dead. Don’t you dare make me feel bad about that.”
