Welp, it's gone and happened: New York figure, Barney Miller alum (or Goodburger star for those of you who are too young to know what that is), Internet memer and generally lovely-seeming fellow Abe Vigoda has died. He was 94. There was such widespread disbelief about the seemingly-immortal star's passing that many outlets took it upon themselves to hashtag their posts #notahoax.
At press time, the website Abe Vigoda Status, which monitored the star's life status (and did nothing else), had not been updated to reflect this sad turn of events. If only they were right.
