Bernie Mac — Dead?? : UPDATE!!!

Posted on

Nope. The title eludes to Bernie Mac being deceased b/c last night I got a Text stating his death as a fact! Yes. While painting the town red last night, a girlfriend of mine (who forewent painting) bothered herself to send me a text stating that Bernie Mac, the comedian and entertainer from Ocean’s 11 and other well-known films has “died”! I immediately sought sympathy from my surrounding friends who were out painting with me. No one wanted to believe it but, my friend said she got the info. from CNN’s own Nancy Grace that he was hospitalized earlier and now he was “dead”. I felt bad and then someone said something interesting…. “Did you Google it?”

I hadn’t thought to Google even though I held the latest of technologies in the palm of my hand. Why should I? I had taken my girlfriend’s words for truth. I’d known her for years to be a gossip, but I was sure she wouldn’t say…”dead” unless she herself had confirmed it. Much to my dismay I already felt that feeling in the pit of my stomach coming on stronger than ever…Was I? passing on an untrue rumor? This was the perfect set-up to just be flat out wrong. Now, I had to hope that the words that were coming out of my mouth were true (sorry Bernie) but, I didn’t want to be part of the gossip chain. I don’t mind stating facts and my opinion on them but to spread a rumor that just isn’t true…well, that’s not me.

Lo and behold…She ONLY had it 1/2 right. Not ONLY is Bernie Mac NOT dead…he was hospitalized for pneumonia and is recovering according to his publicist who had to release a statement in order to dispel the rumor that had quickly spread to the masses! Where did it come from who knows and who cares? I’m ashamed that I was one of the ones who just should’ve kept their mouths shut!!!

Sometimes I even have to tell myself like it T-I-tiiz!!

Unfortunately, when this was originally posted, Bernie Mac’s death was just an ugly rumor. Now it is a sad reality. It turns out that Bernie Mac has passed on. We shall miss his contributions and the humor he brought to us all.

Peace.
