Joan Rivers is Currently on Life Support at Mount Sinai - Report

Joan Rivers is reportedly relying on life support to stay alive.

According to TMZ, the 81-year-old comedian’s family remains hopeful, but will have to make a decision in the coming days whether to keep her on the machines. She is currently at Mount Sinai on the Upper East Side in New York City.

Joan‘s daughter Melissa recently released a statement after it was reported that she was placed in a medically-induced coma.

Earlier in the week, Joan stopped breathing and went into cardiac and respiratory arrest while a doctor was checking on a chronic problem with her vocal cords.

Our thoughts are with Joan and her family during this difficult time.

    I didn’t realize her condition was that bad. I sounded like she could recover from it. Sad. I like her humor and Fashion Police, and if she doesn’t pull through, she will be missed.

    It’s amazing how many people feel this is karma for a mean person and yet they feel they’re being nice by being happy with Joan’s situation. So basically you’re all b*tches who don’t like someone who is b*tchy…yeah, that makes a lot of sense. Don’t be surprised if you don’t outwit karma yourselves. Despite Joan’s nastiness (and she has said/done some vile, hurtful and disgusting things), she still has a daughter and a grandson who love her and are going through absolute hell right now. I hope Joan pulls through, but no matter what happens, I hope her family finds some peace and I wish them well.

    @“patri”: no, I think he\she meant to say that karma is a joan rivers. Having said that, I hope she gets through and that she spends long long years getting uglier and meaner.

    I don’t care for Joan, she is/was a nasty *****, because she is at death door, why should I pretend I care.
    Was it two weeks ago she was praising Israel for killing innocent children, being a mother and a grandmother, where was her empathy for those children?
    Both sides are murdering one another, Israel killed thousands, Palestine twenty. Honestly I wish instead of arming one side, they should arm both sides, and you would see how peaceful it would be there, if any one survived.
    It would be fitting if comedians made fun of her now, she had no respect for anyone except Jews, all the BS that she is a comedian, she can say anything, why can’t people say what they feel about witch.
    She lived by the sword

    the surgery was probably to remove non cancerous growths from the Vocal Chords. any surgery on the Neck and head can be deadly rather quickly

    Joan thanks for making up laugh Says:

    I thank you Joan for making us laugh. Actually she
    never failed to make me laugh even now when she’s
    dying I’m still laughing on her. She was such a great
    person, people will always laugh on her life and even
    death. She always wanted us to laugh and now we will
    keep laughing on her life and miserable death. LOL.

    tough :-( she was a brilliant business woman and even if you don’t like her brand of humor she was always very honest. death shouldn’t be wished upon anyone just because you don’t agree with their views. i hope her daughter lets her go peacefully.

    This woman is Devil's Spawn. Says:

    Everyone has their own opinion and nobody would stop just because some idiots would say to go from here. Who cares for you, HUSH HUSH…If this ugly witch Joan rivers could give her opinions about innocent kids dying then we all have fully right to speak against this devil’s spawn Joan.
    And by the way people who are making fun of innocent kids dying are disgusting, you have sympathy for this ugly hearted woman but your making fun of those innocent kids dying just because they are from Palestinian. SHAME ON YOU GUYS, humanity has gone. If the same thing would be happening to your kids then I would wanted to hear your opinions. I cannot even imagine wishing death to my worst enemies child. You guys are fully low mentality people.
