MSNBC Butchers Bee-Gee Obit

Sunday afternoon, news began spreading of the death of Robin Gibb, one of the founding members of the Bee-Gees. MSNBC’s Breaking News Twitter feed screwed the pooch by rushing out the following tweet:

Yes, that’s right. The family statement says that Robin GOBB died. You know? From the legendary band, The Boo-Goos? Thanks, MSNBC! Next thing you know, they’ll be tweeting out that he died from a terminal case of Night Fever.

While that’s a pretty embarrassing typo, they have yet to delete the incorrect tweet or issue a follow-up clarifying their mistake.
