Single Status Update
Things are not looking good for John Singleton unfortunately. EDT: See the update below.
“It is with heavy hearts we announce that our beloved son, father and friend, John Daniel Singleton will be taken off of life support today,” a spokesperson for the family said in a statement to Deadline https://t.co/Xcy5fsrxrV— Deadline Hollywood (@DEADLINE) April 29, 2019
The news of his stroke, and the slow but steady realization from the focus on his family's fighting that this was a bad situation, made me go back and watch some of his old movies I never have appreciated enough, like Boyz n the Hood. It's just a masterpiece without any of the wheezing traps that word can fall into. Seeing some of it again, like the scene of Cuba Gooding Jr, tear streaming down his face as the cop harasses him, took my breath away.
I changed the subject because there are one or two media outlets saying that he is still in a coma but is unresponsive. He had a minor stroke, was able to check himself into hospital, then unfortunately had a massive stroke while in hospital.
