Hospitalized !! BHR Wishing Our Deepest Prayers
The 85-year-old’s status was shared by his son Christian Gregory on Facebook Thursday (Aug. 17).
Gregory, known and adored widely for his pioneering style of comedy and his position in the Civil Rights Movement, was taken to the hospital earlier this month.
While he was starting to feel better, his health took a downward turn and he returned on Saturday (Aug. 12). Speaking delicately, Christian asked for prayers for his father.
“I’ve watched my father for a lifetime heal the world. Today he is in need of your healing. We are truly grateful for the phenomenal care he has been receiving.
My family and I remain thankful for all of the prayers, positive thoughts, messages and good energy.” A number of his upcoming performances were canceled, including a show with Paul Mooney in Atlanta. Celebs and supporters took to social media to send prayers to Mr. Gregory
