Twitter Users Mistakenly Mourn Death of Robbie Williams

Some seem to have mixed up the comedic actor with the British singer

Some people on Twitter appear to mistakenly believe that the British singer Robbie Williams has died instead of Robin Williams, the 63-year-old comedic actor who passed away Monday.

The hashtag #RIPRobbieWilliams suggests plenty of people are either getting their celebrities mixed up, or using a confusing diminutive when paying tribute to the late actor:

Robbie Williams – who is apparently alive and well – recently started a live tour called “Swings Both Ways,” which has performances coming up next month in Australia.
