Chris Rock has raised some eyebrows on social media by joking about Lamar Odom while the NBA champion fights for his life in a Los Angeles hospital.
The 50-year-old comedian took to Twitter Thursday and tweeted a get-well card, “Here’s to Lamar Odom on being the first guy in history to have coke and hookers save his marriage.”
Rock is referencing the fact that Odom and his estranged wife Khloe Kardashian have called off their divorce in the wake his reported overdose at Nevada’s Love Ranch, a legal brothel frequented by celebrities.
Kardashian flew to be by his side immediately after hearing the news and has not left him.
There has been mixed reaction to the joke, with one Twitter user saying that he didn’t know if Rock was being inappropriate or should be hailed a comedic genius.
