Margaret Thatcher, former UK prime minister, died on Monday following a stroke and left many Cher’s fans restless with the news. Thatcher's death caused a little bit of confusion on Twitter where some users were left with the idea that pop star ‘Cher is dead’.

Website Is Thatcher Dead Yet? reacted to the news of Thatcher’s death and encouraged people on tweeting how they are celebrating her death with hashtag #nowthatchersdead. Users started posting on Twitter with the hashtag as soon as the news was revealed.

The hashtag which started as a mean satire over Thatcher’s death was misinterpreted and much of the internet read ‘nowthatchersdead’ as ‘Now That Cher’s Dead.’

This of course sparked panic among Cher’s fans. See how they reacted.

And there were some users who were concerned about the whole thing.

And then there were some making fun about the whole confusion.

Comedian Ricky Gervais then tweeted:

Gervais’ tweet has been retweeted multiple times up till now.
