Yes, it was a fact. But no, it wasn’t fun. Not for E! and especially not for Michael J. Fox. The entertainment network laid an egg on the red carpet Sunday in its lead up to the Golden Globe Awards when it listed Fox’s 1991 diagnosis with Parkinson’s disease as a “Fun Fact.” “We regret the insensitive classification of Michael J. Fox’s Parkinson’s diagnosis during our E online live stream,” the network said. “We understand the serious nature of the disease and sincerely apologize.” Fox appeared on the red carpet with his wife Tracy Pollen. He was nominated for best actor in a comedy for his new NBC show, “The Michael J. Fox Show.”

“E! Sorry For Michael J. Fox ‘Fun Fact’” is categorized as “entertainment”. This video was licensed from Grab Networks. For additional video content, click the “video” tab at the top of this page.
