American celebrity Joan Rivers is on life support following a throat procedure she underwent on Thursday, according to Hollywood Life news website.
The same source added that her health condition made her dependent on machines after she stopped breathing following her surgery.
The American comedian stirred controversy earlier this month after she made a statement in which she wished death to all Palestinians, showing her support to Israel in its military aggression against the Gaza Strip.
In a clip published on U.S. entertainment website TMZ, Rivers was seen apparently shouting, â€œYouâ€™re dead, you deserve to be dead. You started it. You started it. Donâ€™t you dare make me feel sad about that.â€
â€œThey were told to get out. They didnâ€™t get out. You donâ€™t get out, you are an idiot. At least the ones that were killed were the ones with very low IQs,â€ she added then.
After the harsh criticism her comments elicited on social media, Joan River backtracked and blamed the media of taking her statements out of context.MYNEWSHUB
