In this instance, the twisted is matched only by the idiocy: Some Twitter users are reading it as “now that Cher is dead.”
RIP CHER. Just saw the hashtag. Never was a fan myself but you've gotta respect her influence. #nowthatcherisdead

Bless their hearts. Of course, some may have just been egging on the confusion. In any event, fellow Twitter users are amused.

Too funny. The celebratory hashtag #nowthatchersdead is being read wrong by distraught Cher fans…

Cher death rumor: Debunked. What a relief. Whatever would we do without Cher’s oh-so-insightful tweets to “her lovelies“?
