Gaz Beadle, one of the 'stars' of Geordie Shore, is facing a Twitter backlash after sending out a thoughtless tweet following George Michael's death.
As people rushed to Twitter to pay tribute to the 53-year-old former Wham! singer, Gaz went with "This is George Michaels last Christmas. #RIPGeorgeMichael x."
The tweet has since been deleted and replaced with one saying: "#RIPGeorgeMichael," alongside an angel and microphone emojis.
But it was too late because fans had already seen the original tweet and have been posting and re-posting the screenshot as well as calling him out for the 'joke'. "Shit house we seen what you just put," writes one.
Gaz is yet to apologise for the tweet.
Earlier today Sarah Michelle Gellar made the embarrassing move of tweeting a tribute to Boy George, instead of George Michael. She's since removed the tweet and clarified the mistake.
