Anthony “AJ” Johnson who played an unforgettable role as a crackhead named Ezal in the cult-classic movie Friday, has died, TMZ reports.

According to the outlet, Johnson was found unresponsive in a store in Los Angeles earlier this month and was pronounced dead at an LA hospital. There’s no cause of death released as of yet.

Ice Cube took to Twitter to send his condolences too.

Johnson’s wife Lexis Jones Mason created a GoFundMe page Monday morning for funeral costs and to aid his children and grandchildren.

“We want to honor him the way he deserves,” the GoFundMe says.

According to Variety Magazine, LyNea Bell, a spokesperson for BH Talent which is the agency that represented Johnson, said about the comedian,

“He has left with us amazing memories of his laughter, dynamic acting skills, but most of all his enormous personality and heart of gold. We will be in constant prayer for his entire family including his wife Lexis, three children, brother Edward ‘Peanut’ Smith, sister Sheila, and lifetime manager and friend Mike D. Please give them the time they need to process and grieve such a huge loss.”
