Celebrities React to Death of Cicely Tyson [Beyoncé, Tyler Perry, Oprah, & More]

Published: Friday 29th Jan 2021 by Rashad

Cicely Tyson, the pioneering Academy, EMMY, and TONY-award winning actress who helped break Hollywood’s color barriers on film and television over her nearly 70-year career, passed away Thursday (January 28) at 96-years-old – just two days after the release of her memoir, ‘Just As I Am.’

The report of her passing from her manager, Larry Thompson, did not include information about the cause of death.

Easily one of Hollywood’s most celebrated actresses during her lifetime, news of the screen Queen’s life transition only saw that celebration amplified as fans, admirers, industry insiders, and fellow entertainers took to social media in droves to remember the icon.

Relating to the latter, look below to see what the likes of Mary J. Blige, Kerry Washington, Tyler Perry, Beyoncé, Angela Bassett, Mariah Carey, Barack & Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, & more had to say:
