2017 may be shaping up to be just as cruel as 2016. Mary Tyler Moore has passed away:

More from TMZ:

MTM’s longtime rep, Mara Buxbaum, issued a statement to TMZ saying, “Today, beloved icon, Mary Tyler Moore, passed away at the age of 80 in the company of friends and her loving husband of over 33 years, Dr. S. Robert Levine.”

“A groundbreaking actress, producer, and passionate advocate for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Mary will be remembered as a fearless visionary who turned the world on with her smile.”

We’re told Mary had been on a respirator for more than a week.

The world has a little less spunk today. May she rest in peace.

Thoughts and prayers to her loved ones.
