Following a shocking TMZ report that The Witch had melted into a big puddle on the floor after someone finally guessed her true name, celebrities instantly took to Twitter to express their grief about the loss. From Emma Stone to Bill Nye, it seemed like almost every star in Hollywood had a story to share about a time The Witch sucked a piece of their soul into her mysterious amulet, or pulled a bone out of her hair and gave it to them without speaking, or showed up in their dreams and taught them how to turn a cat into a wicker handbasket. Steven Spielberg tweeted out an instantly viral, never-before-seen photo of The Witch climbing out of Laura Dern’s mirror on the set of Jurassic Park with the caption “irreplaceable,” and even Beyoncé herself paid tribute with a sweet home video of The Witch glowing and hovering above her twins on the day they were born.

Wow. The world is definitely hurting now that The Witch has melted on the ground—let’s hope these loving memorials are bringing some joy to those who knew her.

Among the many tributes, perhaps the most touching were posts like this one from Demi Lovato, which really illustrated who The Witch was even behind closed doors:
