Hollywood pays tribute to Joan Rivers

Joan RiversSharon Osbourne, Anna Kendrick, Ellen DeGeneres, Ariana Grande, Ryan Seacrest and Whoopi Goldberg are among the stars to pay tribute to Joan Rivers. The comedienne sadly passed away yesterday at age 81 in hospital following surgical complications, and Hollywood has since taken to social media sites to remember her.
Sharon wrote on her Twitter account: ”We’ve lost a true legend today and an amazing woman – a pioneer. She opened up the arena for women in comedy…. (sic).”
Pitch Perfect actress Anna tweeted: ”RIP Joan Rivers. Being publicly told that my dress is hideous will never feel quite as awesome. You will be truly missed.”
Fellow comedienne Ellen added: ”Joan Rivers will always be a pioneer. She paved the way for a lot of comedians. I’m very sad she’s gone.”
Singer Ariana posted: ”rip Joan Rivers the MOST fabulous and hilarious. Frankie and I saw her live and met her multiple times together, we loved her so so much. Heartbreaking. Rest in peace Joan, u will be so missed!! (sic).”
American Idol host Ryan sent his condolences to Joan’s family while recalling the ”treat” he had bumping into her in the hallways of E! network’s studio.
He tweeted: ”She was trailblazing. Hysterical. Thoughtful. We’ll miss you immensely Joan. It was a treat running into Joan in the hallways at E!…she was always on… always a riot. Our thoughts are w/ you & your family (sic).”
Whoopi reacted the news with a crying-faced emoticon, before saying goodbye to the comedy legend.
She wrote: ”My friend Joan Rivers has passed away once again to quote Billy Crystal… There are no words. Bon Voyage Joan (sic).”
Joan was rushed to Mount Sinai hospital in New York last Thursday after she went into cardiac arrest and stopped breathing while undergoing a routine operation on her vocal cords at the Yorkville Endoscopy clinic.
She was put into a medically-induced coma and was placed on life support.
