A Facebook spokesperson told BuzzFeed News that the “massacre” was due to a bug that has since been fixed.

“For a brief period today, a message meant for memorialized profiles was mistakenly posted to other accounts,” the spokesperson said. “This was a terrible error that we have now fixed. We are very sorry that this happened and we worked as quickly as possible to fix it.”
