TV network E! has apologized to actor Michael J. Fox for its Golden Globe Awards red carpet coverage. In what USA Today is calling, “one of the more cringe-inducing moments from recent awards show memory,” during its Globes online pre-show, E! flashed what it dubbed a "fun fact" regarding Fox. It read “Michael J. Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 1991."
