Another entertainer has passed away far too soon.
According to a Sunday (Sept. 5) report from TMZ, comedian Fuquan Johnson as well as two others were found either dead after ingesting fentanyl-laced cocaine while partying together in Los Angeles’ Venice neighborhood. It is believed that they overdosed. Johnson and the two other individuals were reportedly pronounced dead on the scene. Comedian Kate Quigley, who was also at the party, was transported to the hospital where she was listed in critical condition, but she is reportedly expected to survive.
At this point, police don’t know who supplied the drugs, but when they find out who did, federal authorities could launch an investigation. They ended up doing so in the case of Mac Miller, who died of an overdose on cocaine laced with fentanyl about three years ago.
Before his death, Johnson was an active participant in the L.A. comedy circuit. He also made appearances on “The Office” and “Guber.” On Twitter, some of his fellow comedians paid tribute to his memory.
“What can I say about @Mybadfuu,” wrote comedian Nick Alexander. “You loved & lived life on ya own terms. Never gave a damn what people thought about you cuz you were solid within yaself and a real Jerzey nigga. We gonna miss you Fu. Rest In Power Fuquan Johnson. Hit em with Fu Facts in the afterlife!!”
“Fu, gonna miss our Fuuuu and Kuuuu back and forth every time I saw you,” wrote comedian Esther Ku. “Thanks for the laughs and fun nights. Rest in Peace Fuquan Johnson. Praying that Kate Quigley makes a full recovery.”
Comedian Loni Love also gave her condolences. “What a sad end for a very funny dude.. may they all RIP,” she wrote in a tweet. See comedians pay tribute to Johnson for yourself below.
