News of comedian Joan Rivers' death is the buzz on Twitter on Thursday afternoon, but not everyone had something nice to say. There are countless tweets calling her out for her "you deserve to be dead" comment she made recently about Palestinians [video above].
Minutes after her daughter, Melissa, confirmed that her mother passed away, many fans of the legendary comedian started tweeting heartfelt thoughts, quotes and supportive messages for Joan's family. However, as is always the case with Twitter, it takes just a few mean-spirited people to turn a somber occasion into a war of the words.

Well this is interesting.. Joan Rivers wishes death upon Palestinians no one bothers. Now that she's dead people come out with how dare.. - @adnankhalid91
How Joan would have reacted to the negativity? There is no doubt she would come back with a classic, caustic comment.
Rivers, 81, died at 1:17 p.m. on September 4 with her family by her side. She spent almost week on life support at Mt. Sinai hospital after suffering from cardiac arrest during minor throat surgery at an outpatient clinic in New York.
