NEW YORK -- They say laughter is the best medicine, right? Well, some folks aren't laughing after comedian Chris Rock took a shot at Lamar Odom on Twitter.

On Thursday, Rock tweeted a meme reading, “Here's to Lamar Odom on being the first guy in history to have coke and hookers save his marriage. Stay strong Lamar."

HA! Yeah, it's a little too soon, but it is kinda on point.

Twitter didn't think it was too funny, though. Some people responded with, "Shame on you, that's not something you can joke about." And, "Not nice, definitely not funny!"

All this comes after reports that Lamar and Khloe have called off their pending divorce after Lamar was found unresponsive in a Nevada brothel.

Odom is now recovering at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles. And while reports of his improvement continue to emerge, TMZ reports that Odom underwent two emergency surgeries on Thursday.

This joke might have been at Lamar’s expense, but Rock will have to come up with some new material if he hopes on impressing the crowd at the 2016 Oscars where he's scheduled to host.

Hey Lamar, all jokes aside -- stay strong!
