D.L. Hughley is in some serious hot water for making a joke about Debbie Reynolds’ death, just one day after her daughter Carrie Fisher’s passing.

Hours after the world was trying to process Hollywood mother/daughter duo Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher passing within one day of each other, D.L. Hughley tested out some new comedy material…at the expense of the Reynolds/Fisher family and their millions of fans.

You can take a look at D.L. Hughley’s controversial tweet below:

Social media immediately reacted to the post with Twitter having a not-so-favorable response. Hughley, for his part, is standing by his words and seems to have moved on from any drama caused.

What do you think of the joke? Did he go too far or is this much ado about nothing?
