Hashtag #fail for Cher, Maragaret Thatcher

Cher is fine — it’s Margaret Thatcher who died. Fans thought Cher passed away because of a misread hashtag on Twitter.
The website “Is Thatcher Dead Yet?” encouraged people to react to the former British prime minister’s death on Twitter with the hashtag that’s supposed to be read as “Now Thatcher’s Dead.” But, since people type characters together and don’t capitalize, it looks like “Now That Cher’s Dead.”
Fans were tweeting their remembrances of Cher rather than Thatcher. Cher is alive but has not commented on the confusion. (AP)
