Patrice O'Neal suffers a stroke

Patrice O’Neal, the actor/comedian who recently was part of the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen, suffered a stroke last week. According to E! Online, fellow comic Jim Norton announced the sad news during the Opie and Anthony radio show, which O’Neal often frequents, on Wednesday morning. Norton told the hosts and listeners of the program, “We don’t know how he is. We don’t know how he’s going to be. I didn’t want to do this by myself. I wish we had more news for you.”

O’Neal, who hosted VH1’s Web Junk 20 and was featured on The Office, has diabetes.

    Really sucks. Too bad he is so obese. Hopefully this will inspire some of the fattys out there to put the twinkles down

    • ben

      • Alex F

        Hey Ben, while they’re putting the Twinkies down, perhaps you could put the gun up .. to your head and pull the trigger. Maggot.

        Seriously? The boys rip on everyone and everything, Patrice is not off limits.

  • Shay

    Sad but really a shock. Hope he recovers, he is a funny dude

    • Shay

      NOT really a shock. Whoops

  • Artie Lange

    Fat people have strokes.

    Dont be fat.

    • Really?

      Skinny people have strokes too. Just sayin’.

      • Christa

        Yes, a very small percentage of thin people can have strokes, but as someone who works at a large rehabilitation hospital on the stroke unit, I can definitely say that the large majority of patients I see that have had a stroke have diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure), and issues with high cholesterol and are generally overweight. Just saying….

      I’d tell you not to be stupid but that would probably be too subtle for you.

  • alpha

    I am a fan but to be fair, O&A and Patrice himself would say much worse about someone else if this happened to them.

    • OAFan

      Exactly, and anyone thinking otherwise is just a hypocrite

      • petite fleur

        disagree the difference Patrice when he does it he does with talent, he is funny, Ben and other pathetic internet folks are just..that pathetic.
        Get well Patrice, we need you and your talent and humor.

  • Pauline

    Patrice, get well please i need your humor and awesome personality in my life.

  • ben

    Just stating a fact. Really is sad how many morbidly obese ppl there are. If reading this makes you wish that I would kill myself, I can only assume you are one of the disgustingly fat ppl I referenced. Stop eating yourself to death

    • 3reddogs

      The fact that you find fat people “disgusting” says a lot more about you than them. You should have quit when you were only being perceived as patronizing and stupid.

      • ben

        I never said fat ppl are disgusting. I used the phrase disgustingly fat. This shows that you struggle with reading comprehension. You should’ve quit before you publicly displayed your learning disability

      • ben

        You also don’t seem to fully grasp the use of parentheses

      • Derp

        There were no parentheses used.

    • Betsy

      I don’t know, just from the pictures I’ve seen, he doesn’t look all that heavy, maybe a little chubby, certainly not “morbidly obese.”
      I don’t want you to kill yourself, but really, why be a jerk in an article about somebody that just suffered a stroke? I know, I know you’re just stating a fact, blah, blah blah. You’re just trying to get attention, which I just gave you, so mission accomplished I suppose.

        Here in Atlanta we have billboards around town showing kids who are obese. I drive by one everyday and I would have thought the girl was chubby or big boned. It makes you think, what is obese and what is a little chubby. Ben has a point we need to be more honest with weight.

    • I love Ben

      Ben, I love you, let’s get busy!!!

    • I love Ben

      I love you, Ben! You’re awesome!!

      Fitness takes discipline, so learn to kill your exsuces before they begin. Exercise routines typically falter due to laziness or disorganization. Buy an organizer and schedule from the workout routine. This way, you’ll stay on surface of your routine and ensure you are hitting all your target areas on schedule.Cardio training is the one other vital part of the entire fitness puzzle. Cardio exercise exercise that elevates one’s heart rate and respiration burns fat, improves performance and contributes to all-around health and fitness. In reality, select exaggeration to convey that cardio is the most effective type of exercise for keeping fit though it mustn’t be anyone’s sole way of exercise.

    even if ben is just trying to be a troll he is making a good point. obesity is a huge problem in our nation and kills more people than cigarettes

  • Allen

    I also agree with Ben’s comments. People need to get a life and get off his back

    • Pauline

      Ben sucks and he is not worthy of wanting anything about him (even ‘killing himself’) and by the way i am a skinny girl..and i bet Ben is a fat ugly guy in the closet..Ben you will never be…even a date you will never have, deal with it.
