News of Stallone’s death began flooding social networks in recent days, exactly 18 months after he was reported by a Chinese newspaper to have died at his home in the US.
Stallone’s image along with his birth and death dates were shared by many gullible people on Twitter with condolences and wishes for a peaceful rest.
However, everything seems to be someone’s cruel joke.
It all started after the star nicknamed The Rocky shared images from a new film project on social networks.
His limp, lifeless images on the movie poster have been used to prove that they are the last images of the actor’s life.
“I thought he was dead? I hate the Internet,” one Twitter user wrote.
“Is Stallone really dead or is Facebook deceiving us again?”, another more sober person asked.
Of course, Stallone is still alive and well.
The actor appeared calm when he heard that he had died before boasting that he had just returned from boxing.
In 2016, a Chinese newspaper reported that the muscular actor had passed away, causing many people to fall into traps.
Upon investigation, it was discovered that this newspaper specialized in celebrity life and that Stallone was not the only victim.
Although the news of actor Stallone’s death in 2016 was fake, it promptly made many people, who rarely updated the news, believe it was true.
That’s why when news of this actor’s death… appeared online again in recent days, it made many people confused and bewildered.
