Chris Rock Tweets Insensitive (But Accurate) Joke About Lamar Odom

Probably a little too soon.

They say laughter is the best medicine, but perhaps in this case it's just a tad too soon. 

Chris Rock's message for Lamar Odom to "stay strong" hasn't gone over so well since it was tweeted along with a Someecard joke that read, "Here's to Lamar Odom on being the first guy in history to have coke and hookers save his marriage."

Accurate? Yes. Insensitive? Probably.  

While the 35-year-old's health issues seem to have sparked a reconciliation with estranged wife Khloe Kardashian, Odom hasn't made it out the woods yet. The former NBA player is still in the hospital after he was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel on Oct. 13. On Thursday, People magazine reported that he's in a "very fragile state," as he underwent surgery in connection to his pneumonia and is still receiving dialysis. 

CORRECTION: A previous version of this post stated that Rock wrote the joke, however, it was written by Somecards.
