E! Entertainment apologizes to Michael J. Fox

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) -- The E! Entertainment network is apologizing to actor Michael J. Fox for an online graphic during its Golden Globes coverage that listed his Parkinson's Disease as a "fun fact" (photo below).

The graphic was shown during E!'s live stream of red carpet coverage Sunday, although not on TV. As the actor was entering the Beverly Hills Hilton, the "fun fact" graphic noted Fox's diagnosis in 1991. Fox was nominated for best actor in a comedy for his new NBC show.

The network said it regretted the insensitive remark. In its statement, E! said that "We understand the serious nature of the disease and sincerely apologize."
