3. Carrie Fisher
Most of us know her as Princess Leia from Star Wars. She died in December 2016 in a hospital, after she suffered a cardiac arrest during a flight from London to LA. Sadly her mother, actress Debbie Reynolds passed away just one day after her daughter. There was some speculation around her death, but officially it was caused by sleep apnea and other undetermined factors.
About a week earlier Carrie posted her last tweet. It was a humoristic post, about her dog Gary and his burgeoning film career. Written in a few short lines and with lots of Carre Fisher’s own emoji alphabet. People who knew her say that she had a great sense a humour. This last tweet certainly proves it.
4. Patty Duke
On March 29, 2016 the Oscar winning actress Anna Pearce (born Anna Marie Duke), better known by her artistic name Patty Duke, passed away at the age of 69. She is best known for her roles in the movies The Miracle Worker and Valley of the Dolls and she also had her very own show namely The Patty Duke show. She has been diagnosed with a bipolar disorder, and this led to her becoming a mental health advocate. Her death however had nothing to do with that, the reason was found to be sepsis from a ruptured intestine.
She posted her last tweet about two weeks earlier and it was dedicated to the 30th anniversary of her marriage with Mike Pearce. Sadly it is the last anniversary they had.
5. Joan Rivers
Joan Alexandra Molinsky or better known as Joan Rivers, was best known as a TV host and a stand up comedian, but she was also a writer, actress and producer. Her sharp tongue was her trade mark, especially when it came to celebrities. She died on September 4th, 2014, she never came out of medically induced coma, following some complications during a surgical procedure.
Her last tweet was from a week earlier and it was in her typical style, picking on yet another celebrity couple – namely Beyonce and Jay-Z.
Interesting fact is that she underwent that fatal surgery that led to the complications just one day later, it was a throat procedure. This gives a new meaning to the saying “be careful with that big mouth of yours, it could kill you someday”.
