Boy George Lives!

It's official: 2016 will go down as one of the most loathsome years in history. All political happenings aside, it has been the year that so many icons in entertainment and history have departed this Earth. The list is long, and includes stars and high-profile figures such as David Bowie, Prince, Alan Rickman, Anton Yelchin, Gene Wilder, Leonard Cohen, Alan Thicke, Carrie Fisher, and, now ... George Michael. The “Faith” singer was found deceased on Christmas Day, aged 53. Michael’s death was mysterious but not ruled suspicious. After the reports confirming his untimely death began surfacing, fans and celebrities began to express their condolences, a sentiment that we have grown all too familiar with this year. For those who knew George Michael, it was an especially jolting and unfortunate event to associate with the holidays. One particular tweet caught the attention of followers (and trolls), and it came from Buffy The Vampire Slayer star Sarah Michelle Gellar. The actress offered her condolences in a tweet (which has since been deleted) that served as a tribute to none other than ... Boy George?

Not a moment too soon, Twatchdogs were quick to pounce and correct her. It was justified, in a way, because so much fake news is transmitted every day. Because Gellar is an influential voice, she could have aided in the spread of misinformation. According to the actress, however, it was an honest mistake, as she had heard the news incorrectly and, in the heat of the moment, paid tribute to the wrong 80s music maker. Humbled by the feedback she received, Gellar promptly corrected herself and the situation was resolved. Some people were a bit harsh... ...while others came to her defense, some even admitting to making the same Boy George/George Michael mistake: Though an unfortunate mistake, it's clear that her heart was in the right place. And, like Gellar, we're just happy we haven't lost Boy George.
