Confused People Are Publicly Mourning Marilyn Manson After Serial Killer Charles Manson’s Death
Earlier this week, Charles Manson passed away in a Bakersfield hospital after having been imprisoned since 1971. It was news that most people generally felt ‘meh’ about, which is understandable considering he was a terrible human being. As Missandei would say, it is known. So why are people publicly mourning him?
Charles Manson was a serial killer responsible for the murders of seven people in 1969. Marilyn Manson, however, is a rock star famous for his song ‘Beautiful People’ and also for being rumored to have removed a rib so that he could suck his own dick. They are very different people, but apparently some people don’t know that.

Rip Charles Manson, he taught me it was ok to be weird...— Christian (@nopoweradeinusa) November 20, 2017
God must of needed a singer, songwriter. RIP Charles Manson.— Ben Kissel (@BenKissel) November 20, 2017
I never really listened to much of his music, but RIP Charles Manson pic.twitter.com/aqhZ2shCHV— pinky ring (@DrCornwalis) November 20, 2017
As a matter of fact, when forming his stage persona, Marilyn Manson, whose legal name is Brian Warner, combined the names of Marilyn Monroe and Charles Manson, so these uninformed condolences are not completely surprising.
Regardless, getting confused for a serial killer isn't great for Marilyn Manson. And the fact that Charles Manson is receiving sympathetic tributes is pretty egregious since, you know, he was a shitty person who literally had a swastika tattooed on his forehead.
Any tweets about his death should have looked more like this.
Understandably, people are confused and upset, so they’re calling out all the people who are posting RIP Charles Manson.

Please Google Charles Manson before you tweet "RIP Charles Manson" when you see he's trending because he died, because all you guys are basically on fucking autopilot in your lives.

Seeing this many people publicly give away how ignorant they are is pretty funny, but not quite as funny as the trolls that have since popped up to make fun of the ignorant posters.
Here are a few of the best troll posts.

You either die a hero or live long enough to carve a swastika into your own forehead.— Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) November 20, 2017
RIP Charles Manson.
It only takes one Google search. Hopefully next time, people will think before posting. If not, we’ll just have something more to laugh at. Remember, folks, the internet is an unforgiving place. Tread lightly.
