Some were amused.

Others wondered if Facebook was exacting revenge for some bad press they've been getting.

Damn, FB, that's cold.

facebook: "we're not a media company." also facebook: "fake news isn't a problem on facebook." also facebook: "you're all dead."

Other said that this sounds about right.

Facebook is telling all my friends we're dead, which is appropriate because I had a feeling we were all in hell any…

Some aren't dead on Facebook (like me).

But they now have Facebook-death FOMO.

A Facebook spokesperson told BuzzFeed News that the "massacre" was due to a bug that has since been fixed.

“For a brief period today, a message meant for memorialized profiles was mistakenly posted to other accounts," the spokesperson said. "This was a terrible error that we have now fixed. We are very sorry that this happened and we worked as quickly as possible to fix it.”
