John Singleton RIP. You’ll be remembered as one of the all-time great filmmakers and an even better person. @Shaft6816— Farrelly Brothers (@farrellybros) 29 april 2019
RIP John Singleton. So sad to hear. John was a brave artist and a true inspiration. His vision changed everything.— Jordan Peele (@JordanPeele) 29 april 2019
This is way too sad. The word 'groundbreaker' is thrown around too easily, but it applied to John Singleton, an inspirational, influential film-maker. While he had many accomplishments in TV and film, you felt he had still more surprises up his sleeve. 51 is far too young to go. https://t.co/pyxb11seS7— edgarwright (@edgarwright) 29 april 2019
John Singleton was a talented director and a kind man. He died too young. He will be missed.— John Carpenter (@TheHorrorMaster) 29 april 2019
