Charles Manson Dies, But Twitter Mourns Marilyn Manson Instead

Still alive and kicking! Twitter users are accidentally mourning singer Marilyn Manson instead of serial killer Charles Manson. Although the latter died at age 83 on Sunday, November 19, while serving his life sentence, Twitter is confusing him for the 48-year-old singer.

While the convicted murderer did write and record music during his life — many iconic bands, including Guns N’ Roses and The Beach Boys, have covered his tunes — Twitter is now mistaking him for Marilyn Manson, metal artist and founder of the rock band of the same name.

“Charles Manson is dead… but his music will live on,” one tweeter wrote on the microblogging site on Monday, November 20, alongside a photo of the “Tattooed in Reverse” singer.

Yet another Marilyn Manson devotee took to the social media platform to acknowledge and pay tribute to other influential musicians who have passed away this year (Malcolm Young, Chester Bennington and more).
