Recent reports claim Sylvester Stallone dead at his home in Los Angeles. The cause of death is pointing out to prescription pills overdose.
An article has been circulating on Facebook since last September 3 about the actor’s demise. There was even a photo of Sylvester Stallone dead body in a bag being transported to the gurney as proof of the death claims.
The actor was allegedly found dead in his room from an overdose of prescription pills. The report did not specify which pills were taken.
The article quickly spread over Facebook, causing confusion online as many believed the rumor to be true since the report allegedly came from CNN.
The reports, however, were confirmed to be false as the actor has been active on Instagram. The actor has been posting photos and playful videos on his Instagram profile after the dead rumors started circulating. The posts show him happy and not at all bothered by the rumors of his death.
Jaden Smith Dead & More Celebrity Death Hoax
The 70-year old American actor, screenwriter, producer and director, most famous for his role as the boxer Rocky Balboa seems to be the latest victim of the growing number of celebrity death hoax.
Just a month ago, rumors surfaced about the suicide of young actor Jaden Smith, son of Will Smith, which was immediately proven false.
Other victims of the rumors include actress Angelina Jolie. The actress reportedly made her final farewells to her children and husband, Brad Pitt.
Paul McCartney was also rumored dead twice. Sugar Ray’s front man Mark MacGrath and actor Jackie Chan are also victims of the hoax. Robert Redford, Jack Black and Home Alone star Macaulay Caulkin were also reported dead. Caulkin laughed at the rumors by posting a photo of himself on Instagram.
While the list continues to grow, one thing is for sure — the Sylvester Stallone dead rumors are all fake.
