A comedian is coming under fire for making very inappropriate jokes, about the murder of rapper Xxxtentacion.

The female comedian Dina Hashem appeared on Comedy Central's Twitter account for their program This Week at the Comedy Cellar as the headliner. In the clip, Dina joked about XXX’s death saying that the incident surrounding the rapper's tragic demise would make a good commercial for Venmo, the mobile payment service owned by PayPal.

She said, “Is anyone still mourning XXXTentacion?” she asked the crowd. “He’s a rapper, who was murdered, he’s dead now. He was shot, he was on his way to buy a car with $50,000 in cash and somebody shot him and took the money. Which is very tragic, but I also think it would be a very good Venmo commercial. That’s the first thing I thought when I heard that. Like, 'I don’t have Venmo, I should get Venmo.'"

Here's the video of her set:

Twitter is blasting Dina. And her Instagram comments are in utter shambles.

Ski Mask The Slump God called out Hashem, sharing the video with the caption, "Y’all Take A Look At This Clown." X's DJ, DJ Scheme, also called out Hashem, writing, "F**K THIS P*SSY ASS HOE."

Hashem responded to the backlash on Instagram, writing, "I wasn't trying to hurt anyone's feelings, that's never what I want. I'm a comic and use jokes to try and make dark topics less painful but I realize not everyone feels that way, and I don't want anyone to feel badly. It was taken down and won't air on TV."
