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:

My mom: such a shock bout robin Williams,I had to turn tv on to see which one it is cuz there's two of mom it's robbie Williams..

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.
