Williams bashes MS organization

Talk show host Montel Williams unexpectedly bashed an unidentified multiple sclerosis organization at a Race to Erase MS fashion show and dinner Friday, according to Variety. Williams, who has MS, got up to give a speech and surprised the audience by attacking an MS group that "raised $130 million and only $22 million went to research. Sorry, folks, I'm dying. We have to change the equation."
 
Williams also hedged about pharmaceutical companies that charge hefty prices for medications MS patients rely on. Later, Williams was given the Man of Courage award.
