Tyler Perry Says John Singleton’s Passing Is A ‘Wake Up Call’ – We Have To Take Better Care Of Ourselves!

Director and actor Tyler Perry said he was enlightened about the passing of his good friend and fellow director John Singleton. Singleton’s private celebration of life was held Monday.

Singleton passed away just days after he suffered a massive stroke. In light of that, Perry sent a message to his fans and followers as he checked his blood pressure Tuesday morning.

He wrote,

“Took my blood pressure this morning, and it made me think about John Singleton and all of us. I want to ask you a few questions. When was the last time you checked your blood pressure? When was the last time you had a physical? When was the last time you ran a mile? When was the last time you checked in on YOU? John’s untimely death should be a wake up call to all of us. We gotta take better care of ourselves!!”

Singleton was recognized as an iconic director whose first project Boyz In The Hood earned him a nod for an Oscar award for Best Director.
