On Monday night legendary filmmaker, producer and screenwriter John Singleton passed away at the age of 51. The iconic director was taken off of life support after suffering from a stroke earlier in the month which left him in a coma.

“We are grateful to his fans, friends and colleagues for the outpouring of love and prayers during this incredibly difficult time,” his family said in a statement. “We want to thank all the doctors at Cedars Sinai for the impeccable care he received.”

Singleton was known for his critically-acclaimed projects including 1991’s Boyz n the Hood which garnered him the title of the youngest (at 24) and first African-American to earn an Oscar for Best Director. He was also behind 1993’s Poetic Justice, 1995’s Higher Learning, 1997’s Rosewood, 2000’s Shaft reboot, 2003’s 2 Fast 2 Furious, and the FX series Snowfall.

Having made such a strong impact on the entertainment and music world, some of the industry’s heavyweights including Jordan Peele, Samuel L. Jackson, Chance The Rapper, and Snoop Dogg, among others have given their condolences to Singleton. View some of the reactions to John Singleton’s passing below.
