‘2016, You Suck So So So So So Bad’: Twitter Reacts to Carrie Fisher’s Death

carrie-fisher-forceeditedIt was announced earlier today that iconic Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher had passed away at the age of 60, days after suffering a serious heart attack during a flight from London to Los Angeles.

Fisher, who was also a best-selling author and acclaimed screenwriter/script doctor, was mourned on Twitter immediately after the heartbreaking news hit.

Due to the many high-profile deaths that have occurred this year and quite recently — pop legend George Michael passed away on Christmas Day — one theme developed right away.

Others just seemed to be upset and in shock.

Of course, much of the reaction referenced Fisher’s famous portrayal of Princess Leia in the Star Wars film series.

And her Star Wars colleagues also expressed their grief.
