Comedian Joan Rivers passed away today. At 81-years-old, Rivers’s career in entertainment literally spanned generations. Starting in the 1950’s, she brought her signature razor-sharp wit to some of the most famous stages in television history. She wrote jokes for the original “Candid Camera” before becoming the beloved regular guest host of Johnny Carson’s iconic “Tonight Show,” a role that broke barriers for woman in television and in comedy with her shameless and unapologetic humor. Her ruthless style made her a staple of red carpet interviews and earned her a whole new generation of fans as the host of E!’s cutting “Fashion Police.”

Even into her 80’s Rivers remained embraced the cutting edge of entertainment. Rivers hosted her own popular web series “In Bed With Joan” where the comedy icon got down and dirty with celebrity guests. Those guests included familiar web stars like from Grace Helbig and Hannah Hart to Tyler Oakley and Billy Eichner.

When the news broke today there was an out pouring of grief and support from the web’s biggest stars.
