TV sitcom icon Alan Thicke has died, according to multiple reports. He reportedly had a heart attack while playing hockey with his 19-year old son and he was pronounced dead at Providence St. Joseph’s Medical Center. Thicke started having chest pains at about 11:30am and an ambulance was called. He passed away at about 12 noon.
Fans may remember him best as the dad on TV’s “Growing Pains.” He also made an appearance on the second season of Netflix’s “Fuller House.”
His last tweet (perhaps a scheduled tweet or a tweet from his publicist) was sent out after his passing but hours before news of his passing got out to the media.

Norm Macdonald explains his recent #MeToo comments
Norm Macdonald is setting the record straight after the backlash he received for comments about the #MeToo movement.
Macdonald was on The View on Thursday and said that his comments about #MeToo were taken out of context. He also said that his comment about being glad that #MeToo slowing down was a reference to Chris Hardwick and that people should not automatically make a judgment on a he-said-she-said case. Macdonald acknowledged that if someone had accusations from “500 women” then “obviously the guy is guilty.”
He was also asked about his “Tonight Show” appearance being canceled in the wake of his comments. The full interview can be seen below.
