Lamar Odom is currently hospitalized in Los Angeles following a reported overdose at a Nevada brothel. Sources told TMZ that Lamar had cocaine and opiates in his system when he was brought in. While his condition has improved somewhat, Lamar is still in a very fragile state and the situation remains very serious.
Khloe Kardashian has been by Lamar's side since October 13, when he was initially admitted to a hospital in Nevada and she has remained with him ever since. The pair even decided to call off their divorce at the 11th hour as a result of the situation and the way it seems to have brought them back together.
While the situation is no laughing matter, Chris Rock tried to make light of the whole thing, tweeting this "joke" from Someecards with the caption, "Stay strong Lamar."
They responded to Chris' tweet, saying:
Stay strong Lamar. pic.twitter.com/oWeciBKR9t— Chris Rock (@chrisrock) October 23, 2015
Fans didn't find it as funny as Chris and Someecards did, though. "Shame on you! That's not something you can joke about it!" one person wrote. "Way too soon! Not necessary! Just lost some respect for you! #JustSayin," another wrote. Still, there were some that defended Chris' joke, saying it's just a joke and blaming Lamar for ending up in the situation he's in.
