What was the Sylvester Stallone death hoax?
On February 19, 2018, a rumor that Sly was dead swept the internet once again – 18 months after it first surfaced.
Facebook users reported seeing a fraudulent message in September 2016 claiming the actor had been found dead at his LA home.
But the rumor returned to social media a year and a half later.
The return of the hoax appears to have been sparked by the release of a poster for Creed II.
The Facebook message was linked to a website known for creating and sharing celebrity death hoaxes. The site was also responsible for previous death hoaxes involving Vin Diesel, Nicolas Cage, Jaden Smith, Jim Carrey, Angelina Jolie, and John Cena.
Stallone himself posted on social media to confirm he was still alive and urged his fans to “ignore” such stupidity.
He added: “Remember to always grab LIFE by the throat and do not let go until you succeed.”
