Yesterday, the Sacramento Bee reported that legendary actress/singer Lena Horne died at the age of 92, citing an obituary in The New York Times.
The only problem? She died on May 9 ... 2010.
It's unclear how the Bee blew this, but Lena Horne began trending nationally and countless news outlets picked up the story (which they have since taken down).
On Twitter, thousands of users mourned, tweeting condolences as if it just happened.
“Just learned Lena Horne passed away. Saddened. A legend. A true star,” one wrote.
“Crying so hard. I didn’t know that her death would affect me like this!” said another.
