At the Age of 50, actor/comedian Bernie Mac passed away this morning from complications due to pneumonia in a Chicago area hospital," his publicist, Danica Smith, said in a statement from Los Angeles. The comedian suffered from sarcoidosis, an inflammatory lung disease that produces tiny lumps of cells in the body's organs, but had said the condition went into remission in 2005. He recently was hospitalized and treated for pneumonia, which his publicist said was not related to the disease.
Bernie Mac is one of my favorite actor and commedian. I really did enjoyed all of his movies and TV Shows. He is one of a kind down to earth individual! He will surely be missed by everyone!
