The “Star Wars” actress had a cardiac issue aboard an airplane and Twitter had a heart attack.
As soon as word spread that “Star Wars” actress Carrie Fisher had a medical emergency onboard a flight, social media had a collective response: Aw, hell no.
This year has already taken Prince, Muhammad Ali, David Bowie and Leonard Cohen — and given us President Donald Trump. Folks on Twitter were not ready to lose Princess Leia, too.

Fisher’s prognosis is unclear as the actress remains in a Los Angeles hospital. According to USA Today, she is stable but remains in intensive care.
But, as noted by several people, the 60-year-old actress has already survived drug addiction and bipolar disorder. So maybe she can give us the end-of-year triumph we all so badly need.
Here are some more amazing Twitter reactions:
