Harrison Ford was seriously injured on Thursday afternoon after the plane he was flying crashed at a golf course in Venice, California after takeoff from the Santa Monica airport.

Ford’s son, Ben took to Twitter following the crash to share with fans that his father is doing well.

“At the hospital. Dad is ok. Battered, but ok! He is every bit the man you would think he is. He is an incredibly strong man,” Ben wrote. “Thank you all for your thoughts and good vibes for my dad.”

The two-seater, single engine plane Ford was flying went down after reported engine failure. The “Star Wars” actor was conscious and breathing when rescue crews reached him, but suffered lacerations to his head and scraped arms.

Ford’s rep released a statement stating that the 72-year-old “Star Wars” actor “was flying a WW2 vintage plane today which had engine trouble upon take off. He had no other choice but to make an emergency landing, which he did safely.”

We are glad Ford is doing well.

Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!

In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.

“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”

What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.

“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”

Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
