We wake up to very very sad news today. Much loved and very talented comedian Bernie Mac today died, at 50 years old [Website – Amy Grindhouse].
This tragedy is not yet widely reportedly, mainly due to the number of false reports last week that Mac had died after a spell of pneumonia.
A publicist says Emmy and Golden Globe nominated actor and comedian Bernie Mac has died at age 50. Mac died early Saturday at a hospital in the Chicago area of complications due to pneumonia.
“[He] passed away this morning from complications due to pneumonia in a Chicago area hospital,” his rep, Danica Smith, told PEOPLE. “No other details are available at this time. We ask that his family’s privacy continues to be respected.”
Remember him at his greatest in the clip below, as taken from The Bernie Mac Show.
