In the tweet from the Russian state-owned news organisation, the media outlet referenced a famous lyric from Bowie's 1969 hit Space Oddity on Twitter to its 2.9m followers by writing: "Ground control to Major Tom."
Space Oddity is a song based on a fictional character Major Tom who is launched off into space, but an accident occurs that causes him to lose connection with ground control and ultimately ends up getting lost.
The specific lyric is referring to ground control attempting to make contact with Major Tom.
This perhaps may be in reference to RT and several other Russian government websites being reportedly disabled by Anonymous as the hacking collective claimed it momentarily took the news website offline, The Independentreported.
Currently, the RT website is back online and appears to be operating normally.
Though Duncan, the son of David Bowie, had something to say about his father's lyric being used by RT and swiftly replied to the tweet by making his stance on the recent Russian invasion of Ukraine abundantly clear.
Quoting tweeting RT, Jones simply replied: "Wrong song," with a Ukrainian flag emoji and two heart emojis, along with an image of some poignant lyrics from another famous Bowie song Heroes (1977).
Here are the following lyrics, Jones tweeted:
I, I can remember (I remember) Standing, by the wall (by the wall) And the guns, shot above our heads (over our heads) And we kissed, as though nothing could fall (nothing could fall) And the shame, was on the other side Oh we can beat them, for ever and ever Then we could be Heroes, just for one day
