Does anybody have a clue what’s going on anymore? I know we’re all busy and we only take the time to look at headlines these days, but this is a pretty big mistake. Notorious cult leader Charles Manson died on November 19 and since then people have been tweeting about his death…but getting it all wrong.

Yes – people are confusing Charles Manson with Marilyn Manson. A few things to discuss: Charles Manson was 83 years old and had been imprisoned for nearly 50 years for ordering the murders of a whole lot of people in 1969.

Marilyn, on the other hand, is a successful singer who has been a pop culture icon since the mid-1990s. There’s no doubt Marilyn is controversial, but c’mon people, do your homework.

At least some folks out there have some common sense.

Can we please use this as a lesson so we don’t constantly look like idiots? Do a teeny, tiny bit of research before you post something online. It doesn’t look good when you mess up royally.
