Celebrities flooded social media Tuesday to pay their tributes and condolences to Carl Reiner, who died Monday night at 98 of natural causes, according to The Associated Press.

Reiner’s son, director Rob Reiner, who also is an entertainer, confirmed the news to Twitter.

Reiner was a veteran comedian and actor who managed to be relevant for decades, busily maintaining his career and popularity from the day he joined Sid Caesar’s “Your Show of Shows” in 1950 right up to his part in the big-screen “Ocean’s Eleven” family and his role as Charlie Sheen and Jon Cryer’s stepfather on “Two and a Half Men.” He was also adept at social media. He maintained a lively presence on Twitter up until the last day of his life. Check out Carl Reiner on David Letterman.
