They believe it’s outrageous that she’s been targeted.

“He was shot, he was on his way to buy a car with $50K in cash and somebody shot him and took the money,” she said. “Which is very tragic but I think also it would be a very good Venmo commercial. That’s the first thing I thought when I heard that.”
Thousands of XXXTentacion’s friends and supporters called Hashem out on her remarks. Fans stormed her social media pages, some with threats, while music artists like Ski Mask The Slump God, Lil Pump, Juice Wrld, and DJ Scheme criticized her publicly. However, there were others who have supported Hashem through the scandal, many of whom are comedians and industry professionals. “If Eminem made the same joke @dinahashem_ did but it rhymed, it would get a billion plays on Spotify and no one would care,” one comedian wrote. Check out some highlights from those who think that there are no limits in comedy.

Either everything is off limits or nothing is off limits. Comedy can’t exist in a “how you personally feel about the topic” world. To support @dinahashem_ (a good comic) is to support the art of comedy. And all this PC shit is coming from hip hop fans? Do they not see the irony?

Dina Hashem is a hilarious comic and a good person. That’s all I got for this tweet.

If you’re a comedian and you’re not defending #DinaHashem then you need to quit.
She made a joke about the dumb, dead rapper #xxxtentacion and is now getting death threats.
Comedy Central is of course being cowardly and apologizing.

Dina Hashem is an extremely talented comedian and should absolutely not be getting vitriol for making a punchline out of a rapper who admitted to beating his pregnant girlfriend and trying to kill a gay man.
