Sarah Michelle Gellar Mistakenly Thought Boy George Had Died

Sarah Michelle Gellar mistakenly heard that Boy George had died last night and tweeted a tribute to the singer, who is really alive and well.

George Michael passed away on Christmas Day and the actress quickly corrected her mistake after fans pointed out the error.

“Do you really want to hurt me? I guess you do 2016,” SMG tweeted on Sunday night. She added the hashtag #ripboygeorge.

“Just as sad when you get the correct information- #ripGeorgeMichael thank you to everyone who corrected me- it’s still so sad. And for the record yes I completely know the difference between Boy George and George Michael – I heard incorrectly. My intentions were good. This is usually why I don’t comment on public matters, but it all seemed so sad on Christmas. Lesson learned,” Sarah tweeted to correct the mistake.

Boy George spoke out to pay tribute to his late friend.

    What a classy person. Usually people try to be cool or cover up, she states her mistake and moves on. I’ve always liked Gellar but this makes me even more in her camp.

    Maybe she knows something we do not

    It is kind of amazing that Boy George has outlived so many of these stars; there was a time when it looked like he would go first. (I also figured the same about Holly Johnson from Frankie Goes to Hollywood). Goes to show you how little we can predict.

    the reporter on msnbc news couldn’t get his name or date of birth right. kept calling him ‘michael george’ and said ‘he was born in 1953′, so can’t really give her a hard time for getting it wrong.

    And reason number 1 why i’m not on twitter….too many people have to be assholes about everything. She made a mistake, get over it. I always picture twitter trolls sitting in their parents basements ferociously banging their keyboards to get their point across lol.

    I knew George Michael died but when someone said that Boy George was doing a tribute even I got confused. It happens to the best of us and so did she!

  • MEEfO

    She did try to cover up by claiming that she knows the difference between Boy George and George Michael when clearly she didn’t.

  • MEEfO

    Really find me one source anywhere who reported Boy George had died and not George Michael. It didn’t happen.
