BERNIE MAC DIES;LEAVES BEHIND DAUGHTER,WIFE,GRANDCHILD


Comedian Bernie Mac died this morning in Chicago:

Bernie Mac, the actor and comedian who teamed up in the casino heist caper “Ocean’s Eleven” and gained a prestigious Peabody Award for his sitcom “The Bernie Mac Show,” died Saturday at age 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.

She said no other details were available and asked that his family’s privacy be respected.

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.

Mac is survived by his wife Rhonda McCullough, their daughter, Je’Niece, a son-in-law Tre and a granddaughter, Jasmine.

  10. On behalf of many Chicagoans,my prayers,condolences and deepest regards to the family of Mr.Bernie Mac.His humor and good-natured spirit was a gift to the world. I went to high school with his daughter, and he created mass hysteria when he visited; what fun that was! BERNIE WE LOVE YOU AND YOU’LL BE GREATLY MISSED! R.I.P.!

  11. Oh my God, what a pity !

    Peace and love Bernie !

  12. You will truly be missed. I love you Bernie Mac!! I know God will embrace your entire family and keep them together.

  14. I still can’t believe it. I am shocked. We loved Bernie. He was so funny. He lost was so sudden. Although I am seeing it with my own eyes I still can’t believe it. My sister in law went to Xavier with his daughter. Before that I didn’t even know he had a child. His daughter and family are beautiful.

  15. My mom just told me about this and I didn’t believe her at first…that’s so crazy sudden and unexpected! My prayers def go out to the family…

  16. I’m so sorry to hear this. What a complete shock. He was so young.

  17. Bernie Mac was a great person and comedian a watch is show before bed . May God bless his entire family and gives them courage I know it is not easy.Rest in peace Uncle Bernie

  18. bernie will be truly missed his comedy got me thru some very hard and tragic times. To make some one laugh is a true gift from god. At the beginning of the show he says Who you wit? Well we all know who your with now in Gods holly presence RIP

  19. How sad that Mac’s last mention in the public sphere concerned the “inappropriate” comments he made at a July fundraiser for Obama. Of course, our boy Obama denounced the comments, adding Mac to a growing list of Black men being played for political profit(Farrakhan, Rev. Wright, J. Jack). I’m curious – do yall think Obama’s constant repudiation of his friends’ words have just been smart politics or do you think there’s anything deeper here?

  20. A sad day for comedy: Black in particularly, the entertainment industry in general. And so relatively young too… 😦

  21. Bernie,
    Thank you for the laughs and most importantly keeping it true to your roots. You can be an example to many young blacks in the industry because you didn’t let holly wood change you. I am so blessed to have been able to see your stand up comedy routine in person three times. You are truly a comedic genius!! My prayers are with your family. I don’t want to say that you died too young because we do not make the blueprints for our lives. We never know when our time may come. I think that with all of the terrible things going on in the world around us, GOD needed you to come home and give him a laugh to lift his spirits!
    Job well done Mr. Mac!
    Rest in peace

  22. A very big loss. I liked his movies.

  23. Bernie, you will be forever remembered and dearly missed. So sad. On earth, the curtans have closed, while heaven has just gotten funnier. Thank goodness for the Bernie Mac show, as it will be watched by our children and children’s children for years to come. Fairwell Bernie.

  24. Hearing about Bernie’s death is like the loss of a family member, to my husband, Bernie was like family even though we never met him. He was in our house and heart every day. Rest in peace Bernie

  25. I was at a loss for words when it came over the 1010wins News Station. Bernie was the only comedian that I felt I could have my son watch on TV. His familymam portrayal was adorable! My son keeps saying, “Mommy, I feel like Bernie Mac was somebody that we knew…like a family friend. I can’t believe it.”

    Much love to the family for sharing such a beloved man with the rest of us. Uncle Bernie….to the World! He will be desparetly missed in the world of intertainment and beyond. Laughter is a great healer!

  26. He’s seriously dead? I thought it was a joke! D,:

  27. AWWW GOD BLESS THIS FAMILY 😉

  28. WHYYY God?

    it wasnt his time(maybe)
    but WHY? him

  29. Isaac Hayes dies
    WHO ELSE GOD ?
    WHY?

  30. It wasn’t his time. I still can’t believe it.
    My heart goes out to his family.
    RIP Bernie Mac, we still love you.

  31. BERNIE and FAMILY
    I’m at a lost for words.BERNIE is someone who could make me LAUGH even when I didn’t want to. Threw all of the JOKES he told and the FUNNY things he did, I could see through him and see this BEAUTIFUL, GENTLE PERSON that LOVES his FAMILY DEARLY. You may not notice that I’m talking in the present. That’s because to me he’ll always be here, making me BUST a GUT and LAUGHING OUT LOUD!
    To THE FAMILY, when ever you have days where you don’t know if you’ll make it through, just remember that GOD is there for you to LEAN on as LONG as you NEED TO. ONLY GOD KNOWS WHY.

    FOREVER IN MY PRAYERS

  32. R,I.P bernie mac you were a person who made lot’s of as happy and smile all through when your show was to be aired!!we here in africa we shall really mis ya. may GOD grant your family the strenght to sali through at such a time

  33. When I heard the news I felt a deep sadness as if I’d known him personally. Bernie was one of the greatest comedy icons of all time, there will never be another who can give what he gave. One of my fondest memories will be how he truly explained to the world the words that black people of our era in Chicago used to communicate with each other. That motherf*****! I loved him

  34. I kind of miss him..after seeing him in Transformer..

  35. Bernie Mac is one of my most favorite entertainers and I was so sad when I found out about this. What a shock. I have been a fan going all the way back to the ‘black comedies’ of the 1990s where he always stole the show. House Party 3 Whaaaaaat!!

    We will miss you, Bernie!

  37. I was also saddened to learn of Bernie Mac’s death over the weekend. My mother and I use to reguarly watch his show. Although I was aware of his recent hospitalization, as well as the internet rumors of his failing health, I was still taken aback when I heard of his death. My condolences to his family. He was only fifty! I still can’t believe it. I was also shocked to learn of Isaac Hayes death. Rest in peace to both.
