WikiLeaks tried to make David Bowie's death all about Julian Assange and people are angry

In 2012, David Bowie appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone.

Eight years earlier, in 2004, the magazine listed him at number 39 in their top 100 greatest artists of all time.

News broke on Monday morning that the music legend had sadly died, which prompted thousands of tributes to pour in on social media.

But WikiLeaks, which publishes leaked documents from anonymous sources, tried to make it all about Julian Assange - its Ecuadorian embassy holed-up founder.

Assange was the subject of the Rolling Stone interview when Bowie last appeared on the front cover.

WikiLeaks tweeted...

People are pretty emotional about it.
