(Although circumstances around the murder are still unclear and completely shrouded in mystery.)

Folks were like, "well, fuck." If this is not some next-level shit.

There's cold, there's ice-cold, and then there's assassinating someone while wearing a shirt that says LOL.

How much does it suck to be killed by someone who has "LOL" on her shirt. https://t.co/aju0cMdjuu

Some couldn't help but laugh at the sheer brutality and insanity of it all.

Many people did note, however, that it was pretty on-trend of her.

Although someone thought "LOL" was a bit played-out...which only made it all the more fitting.

How you know Kim Jong-nam was assassinated by North Korea: killer only had access to outdated memes.

Chelsea Peretti thought this was simply the "scariest shirt" someone on their way to an assassination could wear.

The jokes then devolved into wildly inappropriate — but hilarious — territory. People called the alleged killer "goals."

If I was going to assassinate someone, I would definitely wear a shirt with lol on it. https://t.co/PvuSPIasG4

Some people said that if they were to be assassinated, they'd want her to be the killer. Come on, guys.

I hope my assassin is wearing an LOL tee https://t.co/LIw6MSThuD

This terrifying saga does make for a great YA novel.

So the N Kor assassin is a petite woman wearing an LOL shirt & wielding a syringe of poison. A dozen YA writers started new books today.

Minus all the murder-y stuff.

@GioCBS this is the greatest story ever told. Except for the death part
