Today comedian Bernie Mac has died at the age of 50

From Wikipedia
Bernie Mac was hospitalized with pneumonia on August 1, 2008. Soon after, rumors of his demise had circulated, but were denied by his publicist. On August 2, 2008, a source close to the family said that Mac was in "very, very critical" condition.[4] He was recovering from pneumonia, most likely brought on by his sarcoidosis, in a Chicago hospital. His publicist, Danica Smith, said that he was expected to make a full recovery and that he was responding well to treatment.[5]

Various rumors and hoaxes circulated about his death on August 2nd 2008 and August 5th 2008.

Then, on August 9, 2008, it was reported by the Chicago Sun-Times that Bernie Mac had died due to complications from his condition.

"Comedian Bernie Mac died at Northwestern Memorial Hospital early Saturday morning, according to Sun-Times Columnist, Stella Foster. He was 50. Though the cause of death has not been confirmed, Mac had been hospitalized recently for pneumonia. Foster said that she received calls early Saturday morning from a close friend of the Mac family, confirming the reports of Mac's death."

He starred in many movies like Transformers and the Ocean series. He also had his own show for a while called the Bernie Mac Show. He was a funny man and he will be missed

    The fact that I had already forgotten he was in transformers makes him the absolute best part of that movie.

    It is a sad day, indeed.

    Sarcoidosis is
    Sarcoidosis, also called sarcoid (from the Greek 'sark' and 'oid' meaning "flesh-like") or Besnier-Boeck disease, is an immune system disorder characterized by non-caseating granulomas (small inflammatory nodules) that most commonly arises in young adults. The cause of the disease is still unknown. Virtually any organ can be affected; however, granulomas most often appear in the lungs or the lymph nodes. Symptoms can occasionally appear suddenly but usually appear gradually. The clinical course generally varies and ranges from asymptomatic disease to a debilitating chronic condition that may lead to death.

    shit. yet another way to die.

    It's a little creepy because the second I heard about him having pneumonia on the radio, I thought he was going to die. I have no idea what spurned that though, but then I see that he actually did, and I feel kind of guilty. D:

    Wow.
    Shit. I didn't know he was even as old as 50...But that's a hell of a young age to die these days.

    Can't say I was his biggest fan ever, but when he was in a film I was watching I appreciated his parts.




    And for the record, Martin Lawrence is cool too, just not in high doses....Or in the Black Knight while the subject is there.

    He was in a great movie with Tim Robbins.

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0119807/

    But that was in no way because he was in it. He is, as said, completely devoid of point.
