Confused People Are Publicly Mourning Marilyn Manson After Serial Killer Charles Manson’s Death

Many people are learning the value of research after publicly exposing their ignorance online. Posting ‘RIP Charles Manson’ is both an FML for them and for Marilyn Manson, for whom they’ve clearly confused the notorious murderer. At least he knows he’ll be missed when he’s gone.

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.

Messages like these appeared on Twitter yesterday.

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.

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.

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.

Wait, Hinman was not the nicest guy in the world, but he was not involved with the Family's murder spree, being the first murder victim. Maybe he didn't know how bad they were. He surely isn't responsible for the things they did after he was gone. He was an acquaintance of people who later turned out to be killers. I don't know that that disqualifies him from deserving an "RIP".

You know, when the attacks on Paris happened, I actually had someone I know post on Facebook asking what happened to Paris Hilton, wanting to know who attacked her. I was so dumbfounded.
