E!’s Disturbing ‘Fun Fact’ Becomes a ‘Fun Meme’

Fun Fact: E! should stick to the mani-cam and stay away from the “fun” facts. Fun facts are things like, “Tom Hanks has an asteroid named after him,” or “Sandra Bullock replaced Demi Moore in While You Were Sleeping.” Not a fun fact? What E! threw up onscreen while buying time between red-carpet interviews, which included: “Michael J. Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 1991,” and “Robert Redford was stricken with polio as a child” — neither of which were so fun. Naturally, everyone but E! quickly noticed the inappropriateness of said fun facts, and some even decided to run with it.
