Limp Bizkit fans have had a traumatic 24 hours after confusing the death of serial killer Robert Durst for their hero Fred Durst.
Robert Dust, the serial killer at the centre of the documentary The Jinx: The Life And Deaths Of Robert Durst, died in prison a few days ago of natural causes at age 78.
Fred Durst, the popular musician, however, is alive and well.
But when Limp Bizkit fans saw Durst trending on Twitter, they assumed the worst.
And the tweets were very funny indeed.
Here are some of the best:

have spent an hour thinking the Limp Bizkit guy was 78 and had a side hustle as a real estate tycoon

Pay attention, people!
Robert Durst is a murdering scumbug. He died.
Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit is alive and well and still making my teenage self happy with his music.
As you were.

Shocked to hear about Robert Durst's passing. Limp Bizkit wasn't my cup of tea but hard to argue with the impact they had on music.
