Sylvester Stallone is NOT dead!

Sylvester Stallone has once again been the subject of a cruel death hoax, just a year and a half after having to reassure the world that he was alive following a similar prank.

Back in September 2016, fake reports did the rounds claiming that the Rocky actor had been found dead at his LA home. He had to take to social media to prove to devastated fans that he was alive.

Today, the hoax has re-emerged, as fake reports are claiming that he lost his battle with prostate cancer. Naturally, social media was flooded with RIP messages, as well as disgusted messages once the truth had finally come out.

“Is Sylvester Stallone dead or is Facebook lying again?” one fan frantically asked, while another needed clarification, writing “okay but I just need to know did Sylvester Stallone really die???.”

“Rocky is alive and well! Stop the nonsense!” another fan reassured the world.

“DO NOT SPREAD RUMOR about Sylvester Stallone. Long Live @TheSlyStallone,” wrote another.

The Hollywood actor has yet to respond to this second set of rumors. His last social media post was of a fan poster of Creed 2.

We, along with the rest of his fans, are hoping for some confirmation, either in the form of a statement or social media activity.
