Celebrity death hoaxes are nothing new in the entertainment industry and Jackie Chan is no exception. The Hollywood legend has been dragged once again as a death hoax victim.
Rumors about the death of the 61-year-old Jackie Chan have rocked social media platforms recently. A lot of fans have expressed their sympathies on the internet thinking that the Hong Kong-born superstar Jackie Chan has actually bid adieu to the world.
However, the “Karate Kid” actor was quick to address the issue of his fake death through a statement released on his official Facebook account. Jackie Chan posted to prove to his fans and those who sparked the rumor that he was still very much alive and kicking.
The Facebook post went on saying Jackie was shocked after hearing the news on his fake death after getting off the plane. He also told his fans not to worry as he is still alive. He also warned his supporters to not believe the death hoax posted on Weibo, the Chinese social media platform comparable to Twitter. Furthermore, he clarified that he only has one official Facebook page and that he also have one Weibo account.
We can still remember Jackie Chan being a victim of fake celebrity deaths in 2013. This was after reports came out that the “Rush Hour” actor died while shooting the film in Austria.
Movie News Guide has reported days ago about Jackie being not a superhero fan and that he is also not in favor of too many digital effects used in action movies.
Jackie Chan is not the only celebrity who has encountered fake deaths. The list keeps on growing every time which included other stars like Reese Witherspoon, Bill Cosby and Bill Nye. “Twilight” star Robert Pattinson, Taylor Swift and even Margaret Thatcher did not escape the scam posted on the internet.
