John Singleton Is Reportedly In The Hospital After Suffering A Stroke

April 20, 2019 / Posted by:

Two-time Oscar nominated writer and director John Singleton, who gave us Boyz n the Hood, Poetic Justice, Higher Learning and Baby Boy, is reportedly laid up in the hospital after suffering a stroke. So light your Poetic Justice prayer candle (yes, I’m checking to see if Etsy has one and filing a complaint if they don’t) for the man who brought us one of the best lines in cinematic history: “You wanna smell my punane?

Love B. Scott was the first to report that John suffered a stroke. TMZ says that thankfully the stroke was “mild” and John is currently going through tests and rehab in the hospital. A family member says that John recently flew from Costa Rica to Los Angeles and they believe that’s what triggered the stroke. John felt a weakness in his leg and that led him to checking himself into the hospital earlier this week.

Many have been sending John healing thoughts, including Snoop Dogg (whose healing thoughts are definitely laced with the good shit), Nia Long, and Omar Epps.

John Singleton is only 51 years old. And Luke Perry was only 52 when that demonic bitch ass stroke took him from this world way, way too soon. We already knew this, but this further proves that strokes can happen to anyone. So if you’re already paranoid and as anxiety-filled like me, then a 911 operator will probably get a call from you saying, “Send an ambulance NOW, I’m suffering a stro- Oh wait, it’s gone. Must’ve just been a Charley horse.
