Twittersphere Lights Up With Posthumous Hanukkah Photo of Late, Great Joan Rivers
The Twittersphere was surprised to see a photo posted on the page of the late comedienne Joan Rivers — host of the E! network’s popular show “Fashion Police” — lighting a menorah with her family and a friend.
The picture was taken in 2013 and posted by Rivers’ daughter, Melissa, with the caption, “Happy Hanukkah!”
Joan Rivers, an outspoken Israel supporter, died in September 2014 at the age of 81. Melissa spoke of her mother’s pride in being Jewish in February 2015 upon accepting the Warrior for Truth Award on behalf of the late entertainer at The Algemeiner‘s “Jewish 100” Gala.
Also shared on Joan’s Twitter account was a photo of her posing in front of a Christmas tree with a holiday greeting. According to the Hollywood Reporter, not long after the image was uploaded on Sunday, Joan’s name began trending on Twitter. One user evoked the spirit of the flamboyant entertainer, writing: “Joan Rivers is loving that she is trending on Twitter.” Another quipped: “I feel like someone on Joan Rivers’ team tweeted that picture of her. Either that or her casket has some fire WiFi.”
