Late Breaking News: Bernie Mac Has Died

​ ​ ​ ​


In incredibly sad news, it has been confirmed that Bernie Mac died early this morning from complications of Pneumonia. According to the Chicago Sun Times, Bernie's publicist gave the following statement:

"Actor/ comedian Bernie Mac passed away this morning from complications due to pneumonia in a Chicago area hospital," Smith said in a statement. "No other details are available at this time. We ask that his family's privacy continues to be respected."

Bernie, who was born Bernard Jeffrey McCullough, was only 50 years old. He was actually at one point this week responding well to treatment. But things turned fatal this morning. There is no word on whether public services will be held.

The actor's upcoming movies include "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa" starring Ben Stiller, Chris Rock and David Schwimmer; and "Soul Men" with Samuel L. Jackson and Isaac Hayes. Incredibly sad news for everyone who loved and respected him. R.I.P. Bernie Mac.

I watch the Bernie Mac show

I watch the Bernie Mac show just about every weekday late night. Besides him being funny, he really represented a strong, good family man. It's really sad to here this news and it hurts knowing it's final for us. But I will never forget his talent and the positive way he reresented black men. I've never met him and it hurts, so I cannot help but pray for his family and I hope they know he really meant so much to the black community, fans and etc.

[quote comment="168827"]I loved Bernie Mac. His show was too funny. So pneumonia was the reason? That may be true, but people don't die of pneumonia unless there is a serious underlying condition. If AIDS was what it was, I wish he'd come out and said it. Would have helped a lot of people.[/quote] Why would you're first thought be AIDS? That's just ignorant.

Natasha my ex ( a thug ass

Natasha my ex ( a thug ass Nigga that should have been no where near me) told me one day as I dressed in my Sunday best to go to the club, " You know just like your going to have fun, a group of niggas is getting dressed to come fuck some shit up! Gats & all" Tasha as you grow in size & celebration remember there are skilled people out there who give a fuck less about your success . Don't fear it embrace the challenge. Bernie Mac will surely be missed. The realest comedian I paid to see. I AIN'T SCARED OF YOU MU'FUCKERS! R.I.P. MAC.

It feels like Bernie was part

It feels like Bernie was part of America's family. He kept us laughing no matter what role he was playing. Bernie you will be missed. I still can't belive. Condolences to the Mac family. R.I.P. What happened to my site on Friday. For a moment, I thought the management at my office had blocked me from logging on, then I came home that night and experienced the same thing, I quickly realize ok it's the site not my computer at work. Tasha, let these hackers know they can't put you down for long. Peace.

Just because he had pnuemonia, doesnt mean he had aids. I know a few people who have had it like my son and he sure don't have it.

It is crazy to think that a

It is crazy to think that a few weeks ago Bernie Mac was being criticized because of comments made at Barack Obama's fundrasier here in chicago and now he's gone. It just goes to show you tomorrow is not promised to anyone. When I heard he was in the hospital here in Chi with pneumonia I was pulling for him to get better and that was being reported that he was resonding well to treatment. RIP MR MAC CHI TOWN'S OWN...you will surely be missed.... I SWEAR FO LORD

RIP Bernie & it doesn't even sound like he has any kids, such a shame. Heaven is a little funnier now.[/quote] I read an article saying he left behind his wife, daughter and granddaughter. RIP Bernie Mac

R.I.P. Bernie Mac..I heard it this morning at my har salon. Everyone is shocked! Bunch of Facebook status about this... it hit everyone and news spread quick. I knew he had sarcodisis (sp*), and I was like damn. They say it the Pneumonia, but sadly either way that was hard to fight. These celebs have all the money,etc and can't enjoy it after (leave everything behind). Makes you think. Another one lost...
