Facebook and Twitter feeds around the world were inundated with "#RIP Betty White" after a crazy misunderstanding yesterday. Despite what you may have read, White, 92, is still very much alive--and awesome.

Where did the rumors of White's passing begin? With this bit of satire titled 'Actress Betty White, 92, Dyes Peacefully in Her Los Angeles Home.'


Apparently someone somewhere failed to grasp that these two words mean entirely different things, and the next thing you know someone on your feed is sharing a YouTube clip of the Golden Girls Theme Song and "Thanks for the laughs, Betty. #RIP #TheGreatest."

All because someone somewhere wasn't paying attention in third grade English class.
