Don Rickles passed away today in his home at the age of 90. He died of Kidney Failure. His abrasive humor was iconic. What's those who really knew him knew was that Don Rickles in real life he was a pussycat with a family he adored and a generation below him who he mentored.
His career was a masterpiece of decades. He performed in everything from night clubs to a Martin Scorsese Film. He once joked that in order to distract Donald Trump he threw a dollar bill on the floor!
Chris Rock and many others just adored him. He truly blazed a trail for our generation.
Here's Chris Rock's tweet.
He was the love of my life . Don Rickles is funnier right now in death than most comics are in life. pic.twitter.com/jcWIhdJsgX
