Well, we'll never know it if it was going to be a good morning or not because we woke up to Good Morning America greeting us in the worst way possible.

Trying to share some Garfield-esque camaraderie about Mondays, GMA missed the fact that in the gif, little Simba is nuzzling up against his dead father, not trying to go back to sleep or whatever.

Devastatingly, before the tweet was removed, 98 people retweeted it, sadly saying that they felt similar this morning. We wish you the best.

This was just another in a long line of social media gaffes, representative of the times. My current favorite was the Spaghetti O's Pearl Harbor commemorative tweet from a few years ago:



Nothing says 'Remember the fallen in an invasive attack on American soil" like Spaghetti O's.

The video contains both the live version that was played on the east coast and the edited version that was played on the west coast. Not exactly a seamless cover-up.
