The death of beloved funny lady Joan Rivers shook Hollywood today, reverberating across social media as people said their goodbyes to a true original.

Though best known as a comedienne and fashion critic, Rivers' super-sized personality reached far beyond the pages of celebrity magazines. All the way to the NFL, in fact. 

DeSean Jackson shared an Instagram photo of himself sitting in Joan Rivers' lap with a sweet message. 

Bless #JoanRivers Soul she was really A great person to be around !! I'm Honored to say I had a chance to meet her & Get a chance to Laugh with her !! She was realist !! R.I.P @joanrivers

Perhaps it's fitting that a player known for outsized talent and intermittent controversy would see a kindred spirit in Rivers. After all, she was an unapologetic spit fire who never stopped ruffling feathers.

Rest in peace, Joan Rivers.
