“Debbie Reynolds died a day after her daughter did! Black Mama’s don’t die cuz they kids do! They cry and say God don’t make no mistakes!” DL tweeted.

Lots of fans wrote back saying that his tweet was not appropriate. “As a human being you could have more compassion. As a father you could have more heart. As a comedian, you should have a seat,” one person responded.

DL responded to the tweet by saying, “Nah!! As a comedian I should say what I see.” He responded to another person by saying, “Do I actually care what u think of what I said?”
