Confusion on social media. After the announcement of the death of star footballer Diego Maradona, reports suddenly rained about the death of singer Madonna. But the 62-year-old singer is, you already understood that, very much alive.
‘Madonna’ became one of the hottest topics on Twitter around 6 p.m. Wednesday evening. Not long after that people seemed to realize and the name disappeared from the list again.
‘Rest in peace, Madonna’ and ‘pulled out of this life way too soon’ appeared on social media. Possibly posted by people who don’t like football or know nothing about football. But soon the messages took on a life of their own and it took a while for everyone to realize that the Breaking News was in fact a big blunder.
Because not the 62-year-old singer and Queen of Pop Madonna had died, but the 60-year-old Argentinian football star Diego Maradona. Someone wrote RIP Madonna, I will never forget that game against England.
