Comedian Bernie Mac Dead At Age 50

Comedian Bernie Mac is dead.

The shocking news comes way of Bernie Mac's publicist who says the Emmy and Golden Globe nominated comedian died early Saturday morning at a hospital in Chicago of complications due to pneumonia.

Mac also suffered from sarcoidosis, an inflammatory lung disease he had said the condition went into remission a few years ago. He was hospitalised last week and was being treated for pneumonia.

Strangely enough, just last Tuesday, Mac's publicist had to rebuff a rumour that he was dead and said he was "expected to make a full recovery."

Until as late as Friday, she said he was "stable" and would be released in a few weeks.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Bernie Mac's family.
