The comedian Apologizes After Joking About XXXTENTACION of the Murder

Some things it is better not to say, even if you think that's fun.

New York, NY – Comedian Dina Hashem has publicly apologized in an Instagram post Friday after she was examined in the social networks to mock the murder of XXXTENTACION during his stand-up act on Comedy Central, the Comedy Cellar show that aired this week.

"Is someone still in mourning XXXTENTACION?" Hashem said in jest. "He is a rapper, who was murdered, is now dead. He was assassinated, he was on his way to buy a car with $50,000 in cash and someone shot him and took the money, that is very tragic, but I also think that it would be a very good Venmo commercial..focused on the ad {

"That's the first thing that I thought when I heard that. Like, 'I don't have Venmo, I should get Venmo.'"

Hashem defended in a brief explanation of the joke's context, and are maintained to account for artistic responsibility. She also revealed that the joke has been edited from future re-runs of the broadcast.
