Go In Peace Gilbert Gottfried, the comedians’ comedian and loving family man. He is already missed.

Back in the day, Gilbert roasted EVERYONE he knew AND they LOVED him for it.

Gilbert, Norm Macdonald and Bob Saget are somewhere, right now,

restoring balance to the universe.

Rest in Peace, you made me laugh many times.

Aflac was never the same without him.

Loved him hosting USA Channel's Up All Night with Rhonda Shear and making fun of the B-Movies they were showing. Rest In Peace

Rest in Peace Gilbert. Loved you in the Problem Child movies. Such a tragedy. We have lost so many talented comedians recently. Gilbert, Estelle Harris, Louie Anderson, Bob Saget, and Will Smith (his career).

All stories come to an end. The story of Gilbert Gottfried has finished and it was a hoot. Bringing much happiness, smiles and laughter and a few boo's and curses. The life of a comedian is often a mixed bag but perseverance is a common factor. Gilbert was a success in life and he no doubt enjoyed himself along the journey. What more can you ask for?

Gottfried was great, the guy was just a genius and funny as hell. Like so many other comedians in the world we live in today the guy would be canceled because the woke crowd would be overly offended by his jokes and that is the sad thing about the world today, there is no laughter and he was definitely one of the legends that made life really enjoyable. Glad to grow up when life was still great as a Gen X.

RIP

He was doing comedy up until a few months ago, so it's unclear how you came to this conclusion.

They would. That small minority of whiney people who are very noisy would be very loud. Add the loudness of the right-wing overreaction to the woke, and the internet becomes deafening.
