Comedian Bernie Mac Dies Aged 50

Sad news today! Comedian Bernie Mac has passed away early this morning due to complications from pneumonia. His publicist gave this statement immediately afterwards:

Bernie Mac's publicist says the actor and comedian has died. The entertainer passed early Saturday morning at Northwestern Memorial hospital after recently being hospitalized for pneumonia.Bernard McCullough or Bernie Mac as his fans knew him, was known for his edge and off-color comedy routines. Mac made many supporting appearances in films during the 90's such as "Friday" and "Booty Call," but it was his recent acting in blockbusters like the 'Oceans Eleven' franchise and 'Transformers' which rocketed the comedian to super stardom.Mac had several movies coming out in the coming months including "Soul Men" with Isaac Hayes and Samuel L. Jackson and "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa" starring Ben Stiller, David Schwimmer and Chris Rock. Read more here: (Source)

This was a total shock. I've been hearing somethings here, and there about him being sick, but never got the whole story. I heard about him having pneumonia for the 1st time on the radio yesterday morning. But they said he was expected to have a speedy recovery. So to hear this, this AM was so upsetting to me. May he rest in peace. My prayers goes out to his family.
