Can't believe he died. They said he was getting better.

RIP, Bernie Mac.

I heard he wasn't doing well but I never expected this. That's really a shame.

I loved his show. Very sad. I've also lost complete interest in Superman Returns III.

Re: Bernie Mac Dead at 50

Wow, I had no idea he was even ill. This comes as a huge surprise. I also had no idea he was 50.

Rest in peace, Bernie.

Didn't he have a chronic autoimmune disorder as well? Pneumonia is very dangerous if you have an autoimmune disorder. RIP, Mr. Mac. I hope you enjoyed life to the fullest. You were called home too soon.
