Now, I'm not one to clutch my pearls at much, but this was ridiculous: The E! network had bitches up in arms last night when during their coverage of The Golden Globes' red carpet they had some tastless pop-ups appear on screen which announced the year Michael J. Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease as a FUN FACT!

The amount of fun, however, did not transcend the Twitter-verse, as people lashed-out in disgust as more graphics appeared, shocked when a second came up regarding Robert Redford's struggle with Polio as a child!

The only explanation that comes to mind with this, is that the same hiring-agency responsible for the sign-language interpreter at Nelson Mandela's funeral hired the fool to do the FUN FACTS for The Golden Globes! It has truly been a year of low-key-televised-fuckery at high profile events, and 2014 looks promising!

E! later issued an apology via the Hollywood Reporter, stating:
