This is rough. Comedian Bernie Mac passed away in a Chicago hospital due to pneumonia. People still die from that? Damn.
He was only 50!
“[He] passed away this morning from complications due to pneumonia in a
Chicago area hospital,” his rep said in a statement. “No other
details are available at this time. We ask that his family’s privacy
continues to be respected.”
Mac went into the hospital on Aug.1 with the illness, but was expected to recover.
He was a funny guy and he’ll be missed. Ouch.
