[ # ] Michael J Fox’s Parkinson’s diagnosis is a Fun Fact to E!?
January 13th, 2014 under E!, Michael J Fox


We all know that E!’s red carpet coverage is always a red hot mess and yesterday they made a big mess with some information they put up in a graphic. They had a Fun Fact chyron that read, “Michael J. Fox was diagnosis with Parkinson’s Disease in 1991.” That is a fact, yes. But it is far from being a fun fact and people were pissed by their mistake. Including me.
Viewers were so upset that E! issued this statement, “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.” Too little, too late.
If they want to make amends, then they can cancel Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Then maybe I will start to forgive them.
