  • Grumpy Cat Internet Star Dies at the Age of 7

The internet meme sensation, who has over 12 million followers on social media, has died at the age of 7.

Bryan Bundesen, the brother of her owner Tabatha Bundesen, posted a picture of Tardar Sauce pointing out her permanently grumpy expression and social media users couldn't get enough of her. Since then, she became the subject of countless memes, a Honey Nut Cheerios commercial, book deals and even a Lifetime movie.

"Besides being our baby and a cherished member of the family Grumpy Cat has helped millions of people smile all around the world - even when times were tough".

And, of course, her demise was the top trending story Friday on Twitter, where fans posted thousands of messages of condolence and mourning.
