Kevin Smith Suffers Massive Heart Attack
Kevin Smith, director of Clerks and Mallrats, announced via Twitter that he suffered a major heart attack last night.
"After the first show this evening, I had a massive heart attack. The Doctor who saved my life told me I had 100% blockage of my LAD artery (aka "the Widow-Maker"). If I hadn't canceled show 2 to go to the hospital, I would've died tonight. But for now, I'm still above ground!", tweeted Smith.
He had performed one show for his new standup special, Kevin Smith Live!, on Sunday night in Glendale, CA.
Smith's latest directing project was 2016's Yoga Hosiers as well as recently directing an episode of The CW's Flash.
