A bug affecting Facebook is inaccurately displaying a message on user profile pages saying they have died. The glitch even displayed the somber message on CEO, Mark Zuckerberg‘s profile page.
Facebook users reported seeing the grim messages located prominently at the top of their Facebook profiles on Friday.
“We hope people who love Mark will find comfort in the things others share to remember and celebrate his life,” the message read. The message included a link to Facebook’s request form for memorializing the account of someone who has passed.
As of around 4:00 p.m. EST users said the false claims of of their deaths were disappearing from their profiles.
