Don Rickles has passed away in his Los Angeles home aged 90.

The entertainer died from liver failure. 

The legendary comedian was well know for his good-natured but edgy form of takedown comedy, most famously insulting Frank Sinatra, which the singer found hilarious.

He headlined in casinos and nightclubs across the USA and often appeared on late-night TV talk shows.

He received an ironic nickname for his abrasive but genius form of humour, with fans referring to him as Mr Warmth. 

Tributes have been pouring in for the comic across social media platforms like Twitter, where he was a very active tweeter, keeping fans updated about his life. 

The funny man was also well known for his role as Mr Potato Head in childhood Disney classic film Toy Story.
