Sending so much love to John and his family. Hope his recovery is speedy. 🙏🏾 https://t.co/sEcKuTGchv


I recently saw Poetic Justice(1993) and I really liked it. He also directed Shaft(2000) and Boys In The Hood(1991) and many others.

I hope he fully recovers

2. Hope he recovers from this.

I have heard there are advances in treatment if he gets to a hospital in time.

3. Oh no !

We just lost Luke Perry for the same thing. These men are far too young. I hope John can recover.

4. FYI, he suffered the stroke 8 days ago...

 

...First reports labeled it a "mild" but he's since lapsed into a coma and his mother is in the process of becoming his conservator.

Please get well soon, John...

5. He can recover. A friend of mine had a stroke and was taken quickly to the hospital.

He's an educator and is back in the classroom and playing golf with us on the weekends after 6 months of therapy.

He said it was like lightening striking his brain.
