Executives at America's E! network have offered an apology to Michael J. Fox after listing his battle with Parkinson's disease as a 'fun fact' during the Golden Globes coverage.
The channel is one of the leading networks for awards season reporting, with presenters Ryan Seacrest and Giuliana Rancic taking to the red carpet to interview A-list stars.
During E!'s coverage of the Globes prizegiving on Sunday night (12Jan14), celebrity trivia popped up on the screen, but one note about veteran actor Fox sparked a series of complaints online.
The note read: "Michael J. Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 1991."
Bosses at the network have now apologised in a statement, which reads, "We understand the serious nature of the disease and sincerely apologise."
Fox was nominated for Best Actor in a TV Series Comedy for The Michael J. Fox Show, which follows a news anchor's return to work four years after a Parkinson's disease diagnosis, but the star was beaten by Brooklyn Nine-Nine's Andy Samberg.
