A pop culture icon since the 1960s, Joan Rivers made generations of people laugh.

Sadly, Rivers died Thursday, a week after she stopped breathing during a surgical procedure. She was 81.

She leaves behind a legacy of outrageous humor – and from comedians like Kathy Griffin to actors like Johnny Depp, her wise-cracks endeared her to Hollywood.

See how stars are remembering Rivers on social media below (including, in a true ode to her always inappropriate jokes, one semi-NSFW picture) :
