2016 isn’t only going to have the wrath of everyone coming at it, but it’s going have the triple wrath of the nerds coming at it hard… Everyone’s about to turn into Kylo Ren.
TMZ reports that international treasure Carrie Fisher was on a flight from London to LAX today when she went into cardiac arrest. The plane was just 15 minutes from landing in Los Angeles. There was an EMT on board and he went to First Class to give Carrie CPR. There were also doctors and nurses on board and they also helped. After the plane landed at around noon, paramedics took Carrie to a nearby hospital.
60-year-old Carrie was in London with her sidekick/best dog friend Gary Fisher, where they were promoting her book The Princess Diarist. She was also there shooting the new season of Catastrophe.
Actress, writer and YouTube Anna Akana was on the flight with Carrie and said that she wasn’t breathing for about 10 minutes and the EMT was doing CPR up until they landed.
Don't know how else to process this but Carrie Fisher stopped breathing on the flight home. Hope she's gonna be OK ?

The Los Angeles Times is saying that Carrie is currently in critical condition.
UPDATE: TMZ is hearing that Carrie is currently at UCLA Medical Center and she’s on a ventilator.
UPDATE 2: Carrie’s brother Todd Fisher tells the Associated Press that she is “out of emergency” and is in “stable condition” right now. Does this mean that the vicious fuck wart that is 2016 is finally standing down? I don’t know, but keep the prayer circle going. Gary Fisher is leading the way!
