Bernie Mac Not Dead, But in Critical Condition


Comedian Bernie Mac is in "very, very critical" condition at a Chicago hospital but is still fighting, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.


The revelation came after the comic's publicist told the media Saturday afternoon that she had received multiple calls from news outlets regarding the "absolutely untrue" rumors that Bernie Mac is dead.


"It is a very horrible rumor," publicist Danica Smith said. "It is absolutely untrue. Nothing has changed from yesterday."
