E! Network Refers To Michael J. Fox’s Disease As A “Fun Fact”

Sometimes I really wonder about people and the level of common sense they possess. At the Golden Globe’s red carpet show on the “E! Network” last night, a graphic was put up on the screen that read “Fun Fact: Michael J. Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1991. Other offensive “Fun Facts” included, “37 Cats Died During The Making of Llewyn Davis” and “There’s No Afterlife. Just Eternal Nothingness.” One thing I can hope for is whoever did this doesn’t have a job today. E! did apologize to Fox. They told The Hollywood Reporter, “We regret the insensitive classification of Michael J. Fox’s Parkinson’s diagnosis during our Eonline live stream. We understand the serious nature of the disease and sincerely apologize.”
