RIP Taylor: Woman named Taylor dies during Warped Tour; Twitter mourns Taylor Swift, Taylor Lautner and Rip Taylor

Wait, the world doesn’t revolve around celebrities? Are you sure?

On Sunday, a woman died at a Warped Tour concert in Ontario. Although no official information has been released, Twitter users reported that the woman was 19-year-old Taylor Nesseth and #RIPTaylor began trending.

Naturally, Twitterers assumed that their favorite celebrity Taylors were dead.

Nope, it wasn’t Taylor Swift.

Sigh. Not Taylor Lautner either.

The presumably older, but not necessarily wiser crowd also misinterpreted the #RIPTaylor hashtag.

Apparently no one assumed it was Taylor Dayne or Taylor Hicks.

As celebrity death rumors swirled, the Twitterverse paid respects to the late Taylor Nesseth.

The Warped Tour’s official account tweeted:

But the Twitterverse rumor mill is still grinding away.

Chelsea Grin responded to the rumors:

Police say Nesseth’s death was probably due to a medical issue.
