 Sidney Poitier, the groundbreaking actor and enduring inspiration who transformed how Black people were portrayed on screen and became the first Black actor to win an Academy Award for best lead performance and the first to be a top box-office draw, has died. He was 94.

Poitier, winner of the best actor Oscar in 1964 for “Lilies of the Field,” died Thursday at his home in Los Angeles, according to Latrae Rahming, the director of communications for the Prime Minister of Bahamas.

Truly an American Icon. He will be missed.

I remember seeing him on an HBO special of young comedians; I am thinking it was a show that Rodney Dangerfield hosted. I thought Saget was really funny. I never got into his TV shows and really did not get into the Funniest Home Videos show because I felt it was too scripted for him. He just did a show in Jacksonville, FL last night. I had seen that his early shows on this tour were getting great reviews.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that deputies responded to the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando on Sunday regarding a report of an unresponsive man in a hotel room.

At 4 p.m., investigators responded to the hotel and found him in his room. He died at the scene.

“Detectives found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case,” the sheriff’s office said.

Hmm.  Too young. Way too young.

SF truly loved both of these entertainers.  Bill O'reilly says it best about Meatloaf's passing and the left's infatuation with his anti-mandate opinion.

This morning, singer and actor Meat Loaf became the latest addition to the sad list of iconic celebrities lost in 2022. 

Many media outlets are highlighting his accomplishments, noting his milestones in music and film. But some media outlets have decided to use Meat Loaf's passing as a Covid lesson as it's speculated that the virus was the cause of the 74-year-old singer's death.
 
Last year Meat Loaf voiced his frustrations with mandates, expressed pandemic fatigue, and vowed to live his life despite the risks of the virus. 
 
In other words, Meat Loaf was a human trying to deal with the current state of the world.
 
The fact is no one knows the "Bat Out of Hell" singer's vaccination status, not yet.
 
So it's a shame that some questionable media would take his life's accomplishments and try to paint him as only a cautionary tale when he accomplished so much.

R.I.P Meat Loaf
